Welcome! The Center for Sacred Studies is dedicated to sustaining ways of life,

based on collaboration and reciprocity with the Earth and all Her beings.

Our Worldwide Community

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 501(c)(3) 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.

Testimonials

"This program (CSS) is changing my life. So grateful!!! "  - Elaine McCall

"Life became joyous and simple and it was magical. I sat in stillness, I read, I worked on my sacred art projects wrapped in the warmth of the sanctuary. Can not wait for the next silent retreat!" – Stace J 

"The Center for Sacred Studies and all beings involved have helped me remember the divinity within me and how to embrace my spirituality with love. Thank you for all the selfless time of service you spend helping to awaken humans and heal our beautiful Mother Earth! Much love, gratitude and many Blessings!" - Margie

"CSS changed my life. I am grateful for their love and care." - Jamie

"Making the decision to do this Ministry Training Program has been the most extraordinary gift I could ever imagine. My life has transformed in the most blessed and sacred ways as I have learned to carry the tools of transformation for myself and others in this time of great planetary shift." - Rev. Ellen Kittredge, Earthsong Clan, MTP 2015

“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
