Aloka Earth Room is a contemporary temple-space
interweaving Dharma, Ecology & Art.
Regular Weekly Events at 3 Jones Place, San Rafael, CA.
Aloka Earth Room is inspired by Ajahn Buddhadasa’s ‘Spiritual Theatre’ at Wat Suan Mokkh,
where Ayya Santacitta first encountered Buddhist meditation in 1988. The Earth Room provides an open sanctuary for collective sense making and resilience that results from wise relations with all that lives and dies.
What is ours to do as we walk the Noble Eightfold Path in these times of eco-cultural unraveling?
We support each other in our individual callings and join together for weekly meetings & ongoing actions.
Our vision is a future in which everyone knows we are part of a living, intelligent Earth.
Our mission is our Transition Prayer.
These artworks might surprise you, as they do more than illustrate an idea or a set of values:
artworks foresee possible worlds ahead of us.

We acknowledge that Aloka Earth Room is on the traditional unceded land of the Me-Wuk (Coast Miwok), the stewards of this land for many centuries before European settlement. We honor all Indigenous People’s beliefs, cultural heritage, their relationship with the land, the knowledge of their Elders and the spirit of the Ancient Ones. This recognition of Indigenous Territorial Lands and beliefs is a small step along the long road of recognizing the truth of our shared history and moving towards reconciliation and reparations. We will continue this journey with our Indigenous neighbors as we weave our paths together in right relation.
Follow behind … tranquil
