"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Gandhi
Welcome to the non-profit intentional community of Luminaria Sanctuary! Luminaria is a stunning, sustainably-minded, warm, upscale home healing sanctuary and retreat center nestled in a private mountainside in the hills overlooking the Columbia River. Luminaria supports personal and cultural evolution, balance and acceptance, and the practice of being conscious and finding joy and play in every moment! At Luminaria Sanctuary, we are devoted to the evolution of the planet to a more harmonic, sustainable state. The journey of healing, peace, and balance starts within each of us. It is a step-by-step process, and although we each must take the steps in our own lives, we are not alone. Standing together, sharing our wisdom and experience, helping each other along a path that we are creating as we walk it, carrying the light within each of us - this is the idea of Luminaria.
Luminaria Sanctuary is a private home and wildlife sanctuary, not a business. As a guest you become part of our extended family, which consists of residents, guests, and extended local communitarians. You are welcomed into our lifestyle. Our space is beautiful, clean, natural and organic, and we go out of our way to consciously live in balance with nature and one another. We compost, grow organic food, reduce, reuse and recycle, enjoy arts and crafts and handmade goods, enjoy an active and engaged lifestyle, and help support each other to evolve personally and as part of our greater community. We offer goods from local craftspeople, movie nights, fun activities, education, workshops, and community-building events. Come prepared to enjoy the flow! Come participate in "being the change"!

(Camping also possible.) A selection of massage and spa services are available, as well as intuitive guidance and other forms of support.
Workshops and Events
We open our home and land in support of practitioners, artists, healers, and guides who wish to share their gifts with others. Luminaria is also available for special events such as weddings, rites of passage or house concerts. We can accommodate up to 30 people camping overnight in our large grassy field with stunning views of the river, an outdoor shower and bathing tub, a large fire pit, and miles of national forest trails. Practitioners can bring their own community tents or book space in our delicious open-floorplan home for intimate gatherings. Catering available.
