Welcome To
Tortoise Temple

Our sanctuary is located just on the eastern edge of Portland OR amongst an enchanted forest of 100 year old rhododendrons, cedars and redwoods.  A creek burbles through the property while just outside the temple space Koi pond and lotus flowers play together.


We lovingly call our sanctuary Tortoise Temple. The tortoise is a cross cultural symbol of wisdom, perseverance, and hidden mysteries from the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers to the great Taoist. 


We're a non-religious center committed to inner cultivation and mastery. A soulful community focused on masterful levels of inner cultivation, beauty making and being awake in the Dreaming of life.
