At Inner Sky we integrate our active, suburban lives with practices that includes daily prayer, study and sacred work.  Our life is centered around three sacred commitments to, 1) seek first the Divine Presence in all things, 2) let go of our attachments to identities, possessions, and outcomes, and, 3) love all without condition.  In this call, we humbly rely on spiritual direction and support.  We are guided by spiritual mentors from the Sky Farm Hermitage in Sonoma, California and the Open Sky Hermitage in Bend, Oregon.  The Christian hermits from both communities are linked with us through prayer, guidance and friendship.

 

The Inner Sky Hermitage has two small private hermitages, a prayer room, yoga deck, vegetable & native plant garden, labyrinth, coffee roasting studio, and community table.  We grow our own food and craft for our needs to promote simple and sustainable living.
