Nature Preserve

Spiritual Study Institute’s goal is to maintain its Ranch School as a Nature Preserve consistent with our intention to promote self-discovery, group learning, and spiritual transformation. We seek to be good stewards of the land, which to us includes the non-use of poisons and the use of solar power for electricity and well water for irrigation.

But a Nature Preserve, to us, implies more than just environmentally friendly and organic practices. We believe that behind the world of our senses lies an inner spiritual world that is inhabited by beings that help and support us. These intelligent beings are called angels by the Christians and devas in esoteric thoughts. As such, we actively seek to cultivate awareness and respect for the wisdom and rhythms of nature and to live and work in harmony with these invisible helpers via a process of co-creation.
