The Garden Sanctuary

The Garden Sanctuary Community Spiritual Center is a rental facility nestled in the heart of Santa Cruz. Whether the pathway to the Divine is through music, song, dance, prayer, meditation or instruction, The Garden offers comfort, tranquility and grace for regularly scheduled classes and one time events.

The vision to create a house of prayer for those who seek the Divine in all her holy names and forms was a collaboration of author Jai Lev and his beloved wife of blessed memory, Sheikha Tofah Eileen.

The Garden accommodates up to thirty participants in the vaulted Sanctuary space alongside flower beds, a gazebo, labyrinth, lawns and a meditation koi pond (see Renting the Garden).

The Garden Sanctuary is located at the back of a non-through street providing ample free parking. Passing through the brick archway crowned with a church bell, guests experience an oasis. Entering the Sanctuary, guests appreciate a sense of the sacred, born from many hours of prayer and devotion that occur at The Garden.
