Welcome to the Center for Sacred Studies

The Center for Sacred Studies is dedicated to sustaining ways of life based on
collaboration and reciprocity with the Earth and all Her beings.

The seeds of the Center for Sacred Studies were first planted in 1995 in our intentional community, Kayumari. We joined together at that time to live together, to raise our children, to create a safe place for prayer while nurturing our relation to the Divine and to this wondrous creation.

Our non-profit root, the Center for Sacred Studies, took hold in 2001 to protect our ways of prayer. This created a collaboration with the Global Community to serve our Earth-Based Initiatives, to honor our ceremonies in our Sanctuary, and to inspire with our Global University through our Ministry and Educational programs.

We continue, through the decades, to unite with people in many countries around the world  growing our prayer for the next seven generations!

Join us on this sacred journey as a walking prayer for Mother Earth.
