Amma's Southwest Program in Santa Fe
Amma will be visiting New Mexico on June 15, 16, 17 & 18, 2014. This year we are pleased to welcome her to the exquisite Buffalo Thunder Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The hotel is owned by the Pueblo of Pojoaque, and the pueblo contracts with the Hilton corporation to run the hotel.
The Governor of the Pueblo of Pojoaque is George Rivera, an amazing artist who created some stunning sculptures in the lobby and also designed the entire hotel. There are hand-carved details in many of the rooms and works of art throughout the public areas. We were told the Native American art in the hotel has been valued at over $40 million. The resort has a golf course, pool, spa, hiking trails and golf course.
Members of the staff have expressed their appreciation that the Amma program will be held at Buffalo Thunder. The Buffalo Thunder website is running a banner showing the Amma program as one of the upcoming events at the resort. The hotel has also included a warm reference to Amma's program in their Southwest Airlines magazine hotel description (page 124 of the May issue).
We just sold out the rooms for the retreat nights earlier this week. If anyone would like to be on a waiting list for those nights, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternative hotel options are posted at amma.org/Southwest, some of which offer special Amma rates.
Rooms are available at the Amma rate for purchase directly from the hotel for the public program night, 6/15, Devi Bhava night, 6/18, and the night after the program, 6/19. Anyone interested in these nights will need to call during business hours and tell the reservationist they are attending the Amma program or ask for the Prema block.
On Sunday, June 15th, Amma is scheduled to hold two FREE PUBLIC PROGRAMS. The first Program will begin at 10am and run till around 3pm. The second Program is scheduled from 7:10pm till approx. 3am. Everyone is welcome to come to either or both of the Public Programs.
