Visiting

We love to welcome visitors to the Lama Foundation! However, we are sometimes in retreat, whether summer or winter, so it is very important to check with us before planning a visit. Give us a call at 575-586-1269.

Visitors can tour the land, share a meal or even stay a few nights. Day visits are by donation and overnight visits** have a per-night requested donation of $25 to $50, sliding scale.

We offer a public Shabbat service and dinner weekly on Friday during the summer. There is Zikr (Sufi Ceremony of Divine Remembrance) or Dances of Universal Peace on most Thursday evenings, and the Maqbara (gravesites) of Murshid Samuel Lewis and Murshida Vera Corda are always open to their followers for day visits. Please call 575-586-1269 to confirm times for Shabbat and Thursday evening activities before heading up the Mountain – times change with the seasons, and are sometimes dependent on what events are currently occurring at the Foundation.

**In the summer months (mid-May to mid-September), overnight visitors need to bring a tent and sleeping equipment; at other times, overnight visitors use indoor facilities based on available space. Summer or winter, the mountain weather is colder than at lower elevations, so please bring appropriate clothing and sleeping equipment.
