We Are An Inclusive  Community

Where people of diverse spiritual perspectives gather to learn and grow together.  Where all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders,  and sexual orientations are welcome.  Where kids have the freedom to discover who they are and who they wish to become.  Where passionate hearts stand on the side of love, justice, and peace. Where all spirits are invited to rise and expand in harmony with the earth.
