Temenos Retreat Center

Temenos is an off-the-grid, non-denominational retreat center located on Mount Mineral, in Shutesbury, about a half hour northeast of Amherst, Massachusetts. The name Temenos is a Greek word meaning the sacred space surrounding an altar, temple or shrine.  Carl Jung used this same word to refer to one’s interior space, where soul-making takes place.  Here at Temenos we remember our own sacredness, as we immerse ourselves in the quiet of the deep forest, and embrace with respect, all the woodland inhabitants within this naturally occurring temenos.
