Temenos Community was conceived, created and is maintained by Temenos Church, a member of the Swedenborgian Churches of North American. The Swedenborgian sensibility of open and accepting spirituality honors and embraces nature and mysticism.
You are invited to enjoy this beautiful, sacred space. Temenos Community sits on 56 wooded acres in Chester County, Pa. It is intentionally set apart as a living sanctuary for all who desire to rest, renew, and rejuvenate. We are made up of residents and non-residents of diverse origins and backgrounds. We agree that the Sacred Land here nourishes and requires nurturing. We are all caretakers and we are all being taken care of in this natural sanctuary. We welcome communities and individuals seeking time away to nurture new ways of being, dreams and visions.
We welcome people from all paths and spiritualties. We value all beings. All are essential to the circle of life. At Temenos we seek to serve the whole. We value unity and we honor the beautiful diversity of this world. Come walk the winding trails of the forest and discover the hidden paths of your soul.
Temenos Community is nestled in the heart of historic Chester County, Pennsylvania.
Take time to wander through meadow and forest, follow streams and deer trails. There are sites for moments of silence and solitude as well as areas for nature programs, campfires and outdoor reflection.
Temenos is a meeting place for individuals, groups, families, and businesses. Temenos Community offers a broad spectrum of educational and enrichment programs for people of all ages. Special consideration is given to non-profit organizations.
The Retreat House and the Farm House are available for rental. We have overnight accommodations for up to 30 and meeting space for up to 75.
