Our ten acre forest sanctuary on Bainbridge Island, a half-hour ferry ride from downtown Seattle.
Mission and Values
Sacred Groves is a 10 acre forest sanctuary where people come to re-connect body, mind, heart and soul, to feel a sense of community with others, and to feel the sacredness of Mother Earth.
is to open our home and land as an ‘eco-retreat’ for overnight stays, rituals, healing work, music, learning, prayer and retreat time in the woods. We also role-model a lifestyle that respects and protects Mother Earth now and for the future.
We believe that the earth is sacred, a place for prayer and peace.
We believe that music, dance, ceremony, prayer, and time in the natural world are essential for personal and community health.
We respect a diversity of spiritual paths and the many names of God/Goddess/Great Spirit.
We strive to minimize our impact and keep our air, land and waters clean.
We enliven feminine wisdom by honoring the intuition of the heart, the importance of process and by BE-ing as much as Do-ing.
We are committed to creating peace in our world through personal accountability, conflict resolution, reconciliation and forgiveness.
