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.

Virtual Event: Plant Medicine Summit @ The Shift Network
Mar 18 @ 9:00 am – Mar 22 @ 6:00 pm


Did you know that the power to heal was all around you in the natural world?

Since the dawn of humanity, people from across the globe have used what was in “nature’s pharmacy” to heal themselves — botanical treatments, healing tinctures, and medicinal remedies from the herbs, flowers, and flora that surrounded them.

The advances of modern medicine are truly miraculous. Yet, as we continue to push the boundaries of scientific frontiers, we’ve too often lost touch with our biological and spiritual connection to nature, and the healing power that comes through our plant allies.

That’s why I’m so passionate about inviting you to join me for The Plant Medicine Summit, where you’ll discover how plants can purify, rejuvenate, and evolve us — as they sharpen our minds, extend our lives, and deepen our connection with this blessed planet.

Free Online Event
The Plant Medicine Summit
March 18-22, 2019

RSVP here for The Plant Medicine Summit — at no charge: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/pmd19/thirteen

This special gathering will feature more than three dozen leading botanical medicine experts, health practitioners and inspiring educators — including people like David Crow, K.P. Khalsa, Lupo Passero, Pam Fischer, Sara Crow, Nicholas Schnell, and others.

They’re sharing with you practices and insights for working with medicinal herbs, flowers, mushrooms, aromatic ceremonial plants, and essential oils to revitalize your health, your community, and our planet.

I hope you’ll participate in this special online gathering presented by The Shift Network.

RSVP here for The Plant Medicine Summit — at no charge: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/pmd19/thirteen

During this groundbreaking 5-day summit, you’ll discover:

  • Plants for lowering stress, plus 3 healing treasures in nature’s pharmacy
  • Medicinal plants to transform sadness, grief, and depression — and deepen your connection with Spirit
  • The gut-brain connection and how a plant-based diet and medicinal spices can sharpen your mind
  • Key principles of Ayurvedic Herbalism in treating lung, breast, and prostate cancer
  • Natural remedies for effective treatment and relief of headaches  — from tension to migraine
  • Ways to incorporate herbal teas, tinctures, and flower essences for relaxation and inspiration
  • The secret language of plants and how you can communicate with our wise biological “allies” for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing
  • The healing properties of different medicinal mushrooms — and how to easily prepare and apply them
  • One of the leading causes of many health conditions, plus 3 herbs to rebalance your limbic system
  • The fascinating alchemical process of “living preparations” of plants, which can support all levels of your being
  • Risks of using plant medicine with prescription drugs (not all interactions are safe)
  • The healing power of herbal medicine in mainstream healthcare and hospitals — with inspiring patient stories and breakthrough research

… and MUCH more!

The Plant Medicine Summit will benefit anyone who is intrigued by the healing and evolutionary benefits of botanical medicine as well as professionals across multiple disciplines who work with herbs, plants, oils, energetics or the environment.

Whether you’re experimenting with herbal gardening, supplementing your diet, seeking to treat a disease, or looking for tips on working with clients, you’ll find eye-opening sessions that will inspire, educate, and empower you.

Join a vibrant global community and an amazing panel of presenters to discover the curative and evolutionary powers of medicinal plants — many of which you can grow in your own garden or pick up in your neighborhood!

Here’s what some past participants had to say about David Crow and The Plant Medicine Summit

I have been using herbs for a long time, without full knowledge of what each herb can do and treat. I am now able to classify herbs in many different ways and now know how and when to take them for healt, and wellbeing.
— Helen Kobin, Chester, New Jersey

David Crow was amazing and had an incredible wealth of information to share! The course showed me that there are many options to heal naturally, and the most important thing is to responsibly try the individual herbs and note their benefits. Basically, ”make haste slowly.”
— Andrea Lacedonia, Willits, California

As a functional medicine physician who is very used to looking at botanic medicine from the point of Western science, this course expanded my appreciation and understanding of the incredible wisdom of their traditional use.
Allyne Rosenthal, D.C., Chicago, Illinois

David is a wonderful teacher; he explains things so everyone can understand. I was also very impressed with the layout of the course… very easy, start at the beginning, work your way though, and achieve better health. My digestive problems are gone, I am experiencing more energy, clarity of mind and joy… thank you, David, you went far and beyond my expectations.
Dianne DeVriendt, Ontario Canada

As one who already had a few years of study in this. I was amazed and delighted many times with the depth of insight I gained regularly. A truly amazing teacher.
Bronwyn Norris, Kingston, Ontario

Psychic Salons: Healing With Our Inner Senses @ CSS Guerneville
Mar 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 am

How do we dialogue with spirit, guides and angels to hear their messages about our health?

How do we know when we are holding energy blockages and disruptions in our body’s energy field, and how to release those blockages in order to manifest health?

In this Psychic Salon, we will venture into healing using our inner senses. We will learn how to detect and sense what an energetic block is, and how to find it. We will then practice some beginning healing techniques for clearing these energetic disruptions in our field.


Virtual Event: Discover the Lunar Cycles of Soul Work with Devaa Haley Mitchell @ The Shift Network
Mar 23 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Did you know that a time-honored source for uncovering your soul’s purpose — and providing a step-by-step guide for manifestation — is the Moon?

According to transformational leader Devaa Haley Mitchell, the Moon is a source of profound wisdom, a living metaphor that can support you in the unfolding of your soul’s work… the visions and dreams that are yours to bring forth in the world.

By aligning with the Moon and the feminine archetypes that correspond with her different phases, you can activate these archetypes through intention and ritual to ignite the magnetic pull of manifestation.

On Saturday, March 23, Devaa, the co-founder of The Shift Network and founder of Inspiring Women With Soul, will show you how to use each major phase of the lunar cycle to call in your personal power, set powerful intentions for bettering your life, and make your deepest longings manifest.

You can register here for Discover the Lunar Cycles of Soul Work: How to Use the Moon to Manifest Your Deepest Vision: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/lc/thirteen

During this illuminating FREE online event, you’ll discover:

  • The role the Moon has played for millennia in helping us connect with our intuition and power to manifest
  • Feminine archetypes connected to major moon phases and how you can harness their power to support you
  • How to tap into the power of the lunar cycle to clarify and empower your intentions — so they can come to fruition with greater ease
  • How lunar wisdom can be applied to help you skillfully approach your goals, visions, and dreams
  • A practice to connect with the current Moon phase and the archetypal energy of the Primal Goddess — so you can clarify how to best spend your time and energy right now

Now is an ideal time to engage in the soul work of connecting with yourself and your vision for your ideal life… and to commit to bringing yourself into deeper contact with your own magic.

So don’t miss this opportunity to discover how aligning and working with the cycles of the Moon can provide a powerful, time-proven way for calling in what you long for and realizing your soul’s purpose!

During Discover the Lunar Cycles of Soul Work: How to Use the Moon to Manifest Your Deepest Vision, you’ll discover how to align with the Moon to access your deepest intentions, ignite profound healing, and live your deepest vision.

Virtual Event: Redefining Love with Ken Page @ The Shift Network
Mar 23 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm


Do you ever feel (or have you ever been told?) that you’re too sensitive, too hurt, too fragile, too needy, too silent, too passionate, or too something, to be genuinely loved by others?

So much of what we’re conditioned to believe about love — and about ourselves — suggests that we’re too flawed, and that we can’t experience the intimacy we crave until we fix ourselves.

Finding and cultivating deep and abiding love — not only in romantic partnerships but also with friends or colleagues — is one of the greatest missions of our lives, yet at times it can feel almost impossible to attain.   

According to Ken Page, LCSW, renowned psychotherapist, host of The Deeper Dating Podcast and acclaimed author of the bestselling book, Deeper Dating: How to Drop the Games of Seduction and Discover the Power of Intimacy, authentic love begins with redefining the way we love ourselves…

On Saturday, March 23, Ken will share how to find, deepen, and redefine soul-fulfilling love during a FREE virtual mini-workshop, Redefining Love: Discover Your Inner Mentor for A New Kind of Love & A Profoundly Passionate Life.

Find out more and register here for free: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/rlv/thirteen

During this complimentary hour, Ken will teach you how to discover your Inner Mentor (the source of your “core intimacy” gifts) and how it can open you up to a life that’s filled with so much more love in every facet — because it’s connected to your passions, your Sacred Self, and your soul.

Combining timeless spiritual truths with the best of human intimacy theory and groundbreaking research, Ken will guide you to redefine love… by opening to the wisdom and magic of your Inner Mentor.

In this exciting virtual mini-workshop, you’ll discover:

  • A simple three step process to reveal your Inner Mentor — and an ongoing stream of loving inner guidance: a personal map to the life you desire
  • The secret to transforming your deepest wounds into intimacy and fulfillment
  • A guided practice — The Inner Mentor Process™, which is the most powerful process Ken knows! — to move you toward the soul connection and loving life you long for
  • The crucial link between self-love, romantic love, and loving all of life
  • A beautiful somatic practice for holding a positive feeling and allowing it to seep deep into your being

Ken is a truly compassionate, wisdom-filled teacher whose work has transformed thousands of peoples’ lives, and this workshop will fill you with hope on your journey to finding lasting love or cultivating deeper love in your existing relationships.

It’s free to attend, but you must RSVP here: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/rlv/thirteen

Dear Community and Relatives,

We would like to invite you to our Center for Sacred Studies Prayer Portal call on March 27, 2019 5pm PST.

Margin will be hosting the Prayer Portal call this month with our Center for Sacred Studies Grandmother Elder Jyoti and Spiritual Director Darlene Hunter.

We are hoping to hold a focus of the Now!

What is the shadow that has been brought out in our collective for healing?
How can we stay fully present as we follow the guidance of prophecy that comes to guide us through these times?
Witness the many Divine channels that are intervening now to help us.

Our call this month is “Listening to the Wisdom of the Earth” – Please join us as Jyoti, our Grandma Elder, Founding member of Kayumari with her husband Russell Park; one of the Founding members of the Center for Sacred Studies; Founder of the Fountain Project and Spiritual Grandma for our Global Community Village, shares with us on March 27th, her 71st birthday about her trip to Colombia.

Thank you all for lighting your candles to support Jyoti on this journey. Through this doorway of initiation and ceremony in Colombia, 8 staffs for the 8 seats of the Fountain have been qualified by the Elders of the Four Nations of the La Sierras to continue the work of the Fountain and CSS in protecting Sacred Sites with Sacred Economics.

Jyoti writes:
‘Dear Relatives and Community,
I am traveling into Colombia and meeting with the spiritual elders there. Shortly after I return, we will have our call. So much is challenging us in this turning time. Mother Earth has a clear focus of where she is taking us. Listen carefully for her messages. They may come in your dreams. In your experiences with Nature. Through your intuition and visions. Gather this as I travel so that we can all share what we have received. And through that collaborative sharing we will glimpse at what she is revealing.
Off on my pony!!!
Talk to you soon.’

We look forward to being on the call together!

Below are some of the testimonials received from our previous community calls.

“As an astrologer I was overjoyed with the content of the call! The information was relevant for managing our life.”
– Mary

“Hello beloved family, I am so very grateful for this call that i was able to attend from The Netherlands with being on the call at 2 am as of the time difference. Very much appreciate the sharing of knowledge and wisdom is such a joyful basket of fresh fruits. Its very uplifting and gives me hope and joy in my heart, Thank you! so much love “
– Rev. Daniella Scarparo

“Grateful for the message of hope”
– Anonymous

“Beautiful Energy”
– Anonymous

“… I took a lot of notes. It became even more clear to me the importance of collaboration at this time in human history. It was good to hear again about the condor and the eagle but I had not heard of the Japanese dragon before. I very much appreciated hearing from a Japanese perspective.
– Leoma

“Fantastic! thank you for the opportunity to listen, learn & share, all of it was great including the song, the memorial poem, the prophecies & the interactive format & that it took place despite tech & physical challenges ! would appreciate future gatherings.” – Anonymous

“Thank you again, dear Jyoti , Darlene, and devoted CSS staff. You are providing a safe landing space for our brothers and sisters on the land to share these heart breaking events. I particularly appreciate the encouragement to trust OUR truths, dreams, and prayers – especially those with subtle messages and double meanings. I’ve been reaching deep inside to find something deep and yummy to share. Today, I remembered a song by Rabbi Miriam Maron that touches the marrow in my bones. Called, “Renewal of Strength,” the words say: The Holy One, Blessed be his Name – hides himself…HIDES HIMSELF — IN THE MIDST OF THE OBSTACLE…… We are sure being tested, but NOT abandoned! Spirit loves us more than ever. Let us do the same for each other. Aho.” – Shirley

“Thank you so much for hosting these. It really has made a difference with sharing our love and support in these times of great challenge and shifting.” – Kathy

“I am inspired by many persuasions. Still I feel broken even as an activist. Putting one foot in front of the other is becoming more difficult. How DO we all keep going amidst the storm? Thanks.” – Marni


Virtual Event: 4 Powers of Intuition for Sensitives & Empaths with Wendy De Rosa @ The Shift Network
Mar 27 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm


Are you an empath or sensitive person who tends to easily pick up on other people’s energy?

Do you often receive intuitive “hits” about a person or situation that later turn out to be remarkably accurate?

If so, you may be likely to “absorb” other people’s energy, resulting in feelings of overwhelm, fragmentation, or ungroundedness — a clear signal that it’s time to master your intuitive gifts and energetic boundaries.

According to leading intuitive healer and spiritual teacher Wendy De Rosa, the first step to mastering your intuitive gifts is understanding how — and where — your BODY is sensing energy and information.

On Wednesday, March 27, Wendy will show you how to tune into your body’s chakras and open to ALL of your intuitive gifts — clairvoyant, clairsentient, clairaudient, claircognizant — so you can fully empower yourself as a sensitive or an empath.

You can find out more about 4 Powers of Intuition for Sensitives & Empaths: Open New Doorways of Perception Through Your Chakras and register for this FREE video event here: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/4p/thirteen

You’ll discover:

  • Four different ways of perceiving, receiving, and mastering your intuitive abilities as an empath or a sensitive
  • The relationship between the chakras and the “clairs” — clairvoyant, clairsentient, claircognizant, and clairaudient
  • A guided practice to help you connect to the 4 “clairs” in your body
  • How knowing which of the 4 powers of intuition are most “natural” to you can empower you as an empathy
  • How you can read and perceive energy — without taking it on — and share your gifts of perception for healing yourself and others

As an empath, you may have accumulated emotional and energetic blocks that keep you from accessing and expressing your intuitive gifts in a healthy way.

So please join us to understand how to claim your unique gifts and consciously open to the full range of your intuitive powers!

RSVP here to join Wendy De Rosa for this free event: https://shiftnetwork.infusionsoft.com/go/4p/thirteen

Please don’t miss this powerful event with Wendy De Rosa. By understanding how your body receives intuitive information and energy, you can consciously open to the full range of your clairvoyant, clairsentient, claircognizant, and clairaudient powers.

“The most beautiful, life changing gift I gave to myself was saying yes to this beautiful program (MTP). I am now surrounded by a community of wise teachers, elders, sisters and brothers who are cheering me on and holding me in a beautiful way. Completing this program was just the beginning. I now have a spiritual family.“ Jennifer Hensiek

“It (Stargate) gave me the tools to stay open to follow that guidance…to do it despite the fear and know that I’m held in a good place… To have this family to come back to and my teachers who are just incredible spiritual mentors. I feel so grateful to be able to learn from them and to be able to learn with my peers…and grow into this family…and know it is so safe. Whatever kind of healing needs to be done this is a safe place to do it.” – JS

“Stargate brought forth in me more of who I am, how I serve the greater good, and what I can do to make a difference in this world. This mystery school offers core personal insights, deep healing and lifelong friendships… I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about growing into wholeness and living in Joy.” – TR
