As an institution, Four Quarters exists to hold the Land open for your Spiritual use, and as a practical Center for understanding and adapting to the emerging global Age of Limits.

Four Quarters is Land owned by a non-profit and now perpetually set aside from the cycles and vagaries of private control. Of this we are truly proud.

We who live here, and our Member Volunteers, are happy to answer your questions, assist in your visit, and hopefully, earn your respect and support. All of us began with our own first visit to Four Quarters. We want your visit to be a new beginning too!
