  • The option to camp with your own personal tent, sleeping bag, padded ground mat, and security team for those choosing to camp out with the journeyors (a $542 value.)

  • All teachings, meditations, prayer songs and circle ceremonies.

  • A guide team of local and Lakota memorial horse ride experts—and they are remarkable! (I'm serious about this.)
