Could Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary Be a Model for Eastern South Dakota?

It has been suggested that perhaps we who live on the eastern side of South Dakota might explore the creation of a place of interfaith retreat similar to Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary (see blog post from earlier today).

If you have ideas that might help bring such a vision about, please contact us.

Plan a Visit to Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary

Next time you're headed to the Black Hills of South Dakota, consider a visit to Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary.

Pathways is a quiet place to spend time walking, sitting, contemplating, reflecting or healing in the natural landscape of an 80-acre private ranch in the sacred Hills.

A one-mile pathway through forest and meadow leads to inspirational sculptures, hand-hewn benches and a meditative labyrinth.

The theme of Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary is "Beyond Belief." The sanctuary is open for all who choose to come; a place that is beyond the diversity of beliefs, race, religion, cultures, personal histories and life experiences. It was founded on the virtues of love, compassion, tolerance and forgiveness. Within the Sanctuary all can walk as one and honor the sacredness of life and Mother Earth.

The Sanctuary will be open daily in 2013 from 8:00 am until dusk, through October 29th. There is no charge to visiting guests.
