Long before the Spanish came, the Ancient Ones knew the majestic Cerro Pedernal and the basin it dominates was a sacred space of peace and spiritual power. At Ghost Ranch, held tightly within the embrace of 230 million-year-old red and yellow cliff walls, many feel a sense of belonging, a timeless connection, a feeling of coming home.
In such a setting, 60 years is barely a blink of the cosmic eye, but still we celebrate this milestone. We celebrate the stories of the people who have come and gone, all sharing a questing spirit, a sense of adventure and an openness to the compelling beauty and spiritual power-united by land, people have come here for exploration, renewal and transformation.
We’ve collected stories, most from past Ghost Ranch Journals, some from the book Ghost Ranch by Lesley Poling-Kempes and others from storytellers who have graced us with their vantage points.
We invite you into this celebration of timelessness.
