Boulder Gardens Sanctuary

 Center For Spiritual Renewal And Education



Greetings loving friends, family, and newcomers.

My journey is to help you on your journey.

So, what I do here is try to imagine what it would be like in heaven, and try to manifest that here.

 When I was in my late 30,s I gave up all my possessions, the house, the car, bank accounts, everything except a bedroll, a bowl, and a spoon, and went on a walk across America to experience spirit with a group called the Christ Brothers Organization, who appeared at my front door one day.

We walked around the country for 5 years.

We found we couldn't stop and just hang out anywhere without being asked to move on.

 From that experience, I decided that I find a place that ALL would be welcome.

A place of natural beauty, where people could come together with their brilliance, and their ideas, and their love,...

to engineer... a better world, ...

...a new world so to speak.


When spirit lead me to this land, it was clear to me that I was being called to do just that.

I wrote letters to family and friends, in hopes that I would find a buyer. I took pictures and drafted plans showing its great potential.

Soon after

my Mom and Dad made the purchase.

My Dad decided to divide the land into eight parts, and as long as I keep paying the land taxes, without fail,

 they would gift it to me one piece at a time.

 I agreed to the deal.

 to make an honest buck, I worked odd jobs.

In the beginning, I didn't do anything except clean up.

The previous owners had no idea what it was.

It was left to become the wild west. 

I slept on an old weathered couch for three years while removing broken glass, gun casings, rusted engine parts, from years of its abandonment.

Then a friend, Victor, gave me an Indian tepee.

 I lived in it now, with a more durable shell.

But, for 10 years the canvas lasted through harsh desert winters and the brutal summers.

For many many years I hauled water up to the tepee area, sometimes by foot in 3 feet of snow.... until I

 eventually saved up enough money to dig a well from working at Mental Physics in Yucca Valley as a grounds keeper.

Which now pumps water all over the property.

I planted fruit trees,

made rock gardens,

 created cascading ponds for fish and frogs, and birds.

Formed a watering hole in the boulders, a wood-burning sauna, created

exotic bird aviaries in caves, a garden house / indoor solar shower, an outdoor kitchen, and many vegetable gardens.

 I created a mountain spring,

built a 300 seat three teared amphitheater in the boulders with a stage that today makes alot of people happy.

I couldn't have done it without the help of all those that wandered up the road.


Now stewards and loving volunteers work hard behind the scenes to keep it clean and open.

Our next goal is to build a Greeting Center at the entrance area with guest quarters.


The design is in the can and ready to go.
