  • Description


    This Temple Sanctuary is a sacred cooperative community that offers an alternative model of living to the obsolete conflictual ways of the world, demonstrating the eternal themes underlying the majority of spiritual traditions: selfless service, persisting as love & forgiveness.

    There are many doors through which to join our Gathering. One of them is the one you are accessing now: The Volunteer Program.

    Hundreds of people from all over the world have been transformed volunteering with us, taking their learning with them into the world as more conscious, mature beings.

    The land where the Temple is located is a physical manifestation of our common purpose on this earth. Our space has been artfully created by the 40 permanent residents and has been our home for the past 10 years.

    We need hands and bodies to sustain the physical aspect of our community and we need willing minds and hearts to learn from our Model of Life, integrate it within yourself and bring it with you wherever you go! 

We need you and the world needs you. So, there you have it! You are needed, and nothing is greater than that.
