The Circle Sanctuary is a community for transformation of every member by providing the opportunity for connecting with ourselves, connecting with others and connecting with the earth as our Sanctuary.

            "Giving Permission to Consider & Providing Access to Possibility -
             that is the Strength, Vision and Purpose of The Circle Sanctuary."
                                                             Rick Tidrick

           "We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give."
                                                            Winston Churchill

The Circle Sanctuary is a continuing creation of themes, networks and venues for the casting, planting and nurturing of transformational seeds. Our primary vehicle for this exploration is sitting in Circle together and bringing forth information, creativity, diversity, wisdom, compassion and peace while having a great deal of fun.

Members and guests have access, by invitation, to a private residence for Personal Retreat, Salons, Circles and Councils, on 85 acres in the Southwestern Denver foothills.  This Sanctuary lies among the beautiful Red Rock formations, with extraordinary views in a natural setting and abundant wildlife near Morrison, Colorado. 

The Circle Sanctuary is for the exploration of our personal, cultural and spiritual interests, and the challenges to our natural world, while connecting needs with resources.  Our guiding principal is to initiate an attitude of gratitude and generosity.  We seek the opportunity to express ourselves in ways that enhance the lives of future generations.  When you come to the land with an open heart, you will find serenity, solitude, healing, love and community.
Our Community:


It is our practice to engage others while recognizing each individual as a valuable, capable, equal, powerful and loveable member of this sanctuary. We encourage individual psycho-spiritual growth and group socio-ecological development.  Being in Circle is our incubator, as well as our catalyst for the expression of our attitudes, opinions, beliefs, values and ideas, with intimacy and safety. While appreciating Retreat as our primary focus, sitting in circle, and listening to others respectfully, and sharing from the heart, is the foundation of our Salons, Circles and Councils.

Becoming a Member:
Salons are our broadest format of gathering people together. Salons are offered during the days and evenings, mostly on weekends. Guests are welcome to drop in and join a scheduled salon, as they are always free. They are informal, large or small depending on the current draw and facilitated by a host member. Salons are encouraged for guests as a great venue for having questions answered about The Circle Sanctuary. Schedules and topics are posted at "Schedule" and guests are offered three free Salons to attend before being asked to commit to membership.
