Lodging and Food:
Bolad’s Kitchen students find their own places to stay locally during sessions and are also responsible for their own food while they’re here. Food and lodging are not included in tuition. There are many lodging establishments in the Ojo Caliente area that range from camping to quite spacious houses, ’50s style motels to the local mineral springs resort. We send all students a list of some lodging options in the area along with contact information well in advance of each session to help folks make their plans.

For our out-of-town students shuttle transportation will be available to transport you to and from Ojo Caliente and the Albuquerque airport. We will send shuttle details and cost as the new class approaches. Please schedule your flight to arrive before 3:00 pm on the opening day and to leave after 3:00 pm on the closing day. The shuttlevan will stop at a natural foods grocery market in Santa Fe on the way up to Ojo Caliente for students to buy groceries for the week, if they choose. A transportation registration form will be sent to you about 8 weeks before class begins for those who would like to ride the shuttle.

A Note on Tuition:
We have struggled long and hard over the pricing of the school, trying to keep the price reasonable enough so that all who truly want to attend will not be hindered by their economic situation. Knowing full well that to maintain the respect for the teaching that is being offered, we should be charging at least $5,,000 a year per student, and in keeping with this we are suggesting a price of $2,500 a year, or $1,250 for each session, for those who can afford it. As we are a “non-endowed” school, this second tuition rate may help ensure that Bolad’s Kitchen can continue on, to keep a low tuition and to provide scholarships to certain dedicated students who otherwise would be unable to attend. We are trusting completely that those who have the means to pay $2,500 or more, according to their desires, will show their ability to make it possible for the remainder of students to attend at the lower tuition, in accordance to their means as well.

We have kept the tuition for Bolad’s Kitchen the same for 15 years since it’s beginning in 2004 and would like to continue to do so for as long as we possibly can. We are hoping that with no questions asked, students whom are able to pay the higher rate of $1,250 a session will do so, helping us keep the cost down to $850 for one session for the rest.

The cost for ongoing students is $850 for May’s session. For those who are able to pay a higher tuition, the cost is $1,250 for one session. Tuition is due with registration.

If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund or give money to make it possible for Bolad’s Kitchen to build a library, children’s learning palace, housing and ritual/farming area according to Martín’s dream, please contact Marianne Lust at or (802) 453-6325. This amount will be charged with your tuition, unless otherwise indicated.

I would like to donate $____________________
