Temenos was opened in 1997 as an open space where visitors and guests would be welcomed to experience an encounter with the sacred, irrespective of whether one follows a traditional spiritual path or not. Our gentle oasis and its inclusivity is in many ways a microcosm of a more tolerant and more compassionate world where individuals and groups are invited to meet one another in The Beloved.
At Temenos we encourage our visitors to take time out to enjoy beauty, to be still and to practice awareness as a way of nurturing body and soul. One of the experiences guests enjoy most is walking in our spiral garden. A spiral is deeply symbolic and when one mindfully enters a spiral, one may experience a deepening of the awareness of one's own spiritual journey. Our spiral is also unique in that five great spiritual traditions are quietly honoured, each with its own shrine. Here the war has ended! And in the shade of the cyprus "God may come to rest".
Our Zen Garden is available for anyone who enjoys this form of meditation - either raking away pine needles or just sitting and "watching the grass grow by itself".
