Temenos Retreat Center is located in Shutesbury, MA on 68 acres of protected woodland. Four rustic cabins open year round and a lodge open April-October offer a variety of options for retreats and gatherings.
The purpose of Temenos, Inc. is to make available a protected forest environment in which seekers live carefully and reverently with themselves and other beings. Temenos is devoted to the healing and renewal of persons, groups and the wider society, and to the discovery and practice of Truth. Consonant with this purpose, all who come to Temenos shall be asked to respect, preserve and nurture the natural environment and its historical features.
Guiding Vision: The vision of Temenos is the renewal of human consciousness and the interrelatedness of all life. Inspired and informed by Earth’s living natural systems we become responsible stewards of our communities, cultures, and our relationship to the living earth. In deepening our awareness and stewardship we bring about a vibrant relationship of sacred harmony with the interconnectedness of the place we inhabit.
