Tortoise Temple
at onedoorland

A hidden sanctuary of cultivation on the Eastern edge of Portland

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.
