Ghost Ranch Additional Information

Additional information for the 2023 Net of Light Gathering at Ghost Ranch Retreat Center

Registration: Contact Penni Thorpe pthorpehfe@gmail.com

All are welcome to our Net of Light Gathering! For those who are new to this work, we ask that you read one of Sharon McErlane’s books and receive an Empowerment. Over the many years of holding these Gatherings, we have found this preparation work greatly enhances the experience.

Books: The first book, “A Call to Power: The Grandmothers Speak”describes Sharon’s original meeting with the Grandmothers 21 years ago, and is a good starting place. All Books are available through the netoflight.org website under the “BOOKS” tab,https://netoflight.org/#books

Empowerment: If you have not already received the Grandmothers Empowerment (described in the first book), we ask that you do so before the Gathering. Please contact Anita Albright anitaalbright8@gmail.com or Jenny Treanor gjtreanor@gmail.com  with questions about how to go about receiving an Empowerment.

ACCOMODATIONS:

The Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center https://www.ghostranch.org/  Ghost Ranch is located at 6,000 feet (please be aware that this high of an altitude can have an impact on you) and 65 miles northwest of Santa Fe (forty miles beyond Española) on U.S. 84.

While you are there: 

Cell Phone Coverage

Cell phones get a signal at the entrance to Ghost Ranch by the City Slickers cabin, but it is inconsistent everywhere else on the Ranch. You may want to let your friends and family know that coverage is intermittent. In case of any emergency, please let family and friends that you may be reached by calling (505) 685-1000 ext. 0. The signal also gets lost in the red rock area just south of Ghost Ranch so you may not be able to call the Ranch when you are nearing it, about the last 20 minutes as you approach from the south.

Internet Connections

There are a few Wi-Fi hot spots for internet connections around the Ranch. Service is sometimes intermittent and slow due to satellite and weather conditions.
