Welcome to the Center for Sacred Studies
The Center for Sacred Studies is dedicated to sustaining ways of life based on
collaboration and reciprocity with the Earth and all Her beings.
The seeds of the Center for Sacred Studies were first planted in 1995 in our intentional community, Kayumari. We joined together at that time to live together, to raise our children, to create a safe place for prayer while nurturing our relation to the Divine and to this wondrous creation.
Our non-profit root, the Center for Sacred Studies, took hold in 2001 to protect our ways of prayer. This created a collaboration with the Global Community to serve our Earth-Based Initiatives, to honor our ceremonies in our Sanctuary, and to inspire with our Global University through our Ministry and Educational programs.
We continue, through the decades, to unite with people in many countries around the world growing our prayer for the next seven generations!
Join us on this sacred journey as a walking prayer for Mother Earth.

Dear friends, relations and supporters of The Grandmothers Council and The Center for Sacred Studies:
Since 2004 when the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers joined in partnership with the Center for Sacred Studies (CSS), we have been blessed to devote the last decade in alliance together for peace and unity. The Grandmothers have traveled to each others’ homelands and to many places around the world to develop solidarity and cultural exchange; education and community outreach and sustainable community development. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have continued to support our global movement with prayers and donations of all kinds. The Grandmothers’ Council could not be sustained without hundreds of devoted people around the world.
In this era of transition, we are all clarifying ourselves and stepping more fully into our sovereignty. Though our business relationship is shifting as the Grandmothers Council looks to form their own non-profit, our spiritual partnership continues as both the Grandmothers Council and The Center for Sacred Studies spread our wings and develop our common mission in independent directions.
We see this as an expansion; a way in which we can grow this prayer for peace and unity, with love and respect for all.
The unity is in motion,
The Center for Sacred Studies
