Terra’s Temple, 3051 Adeline Street, Berkeley


Each month engage different local teachers to reconnect us with ourselves and our planet.

We have an abundance of wise elders, artists, activists, authors, healers, scientists, educators and spiritual leaders in the Bay Area whose work includes a connection to how we live within our beloved planet. It is the intention of Terra’s Temple to tap into all of this wisdom and share it with community members, so that we all may benefit and learn from each other. We want to continue the work of others toward building a strong community of wise and conscious citizens.
