Our Mission

Our objective is to live a good and simple life. We feel there is a divine spark and creativity in every individual which requires respect and support. 

Our History


Starcross is a small, independent, monastic community located in beautiful northwestern Sonoma County, California since 1976.

Our Land

A Place to Grow

We welcome visitors on many different paths. Whether you are interested in spiritual contemplation, organic agriculture, ecological outreach or social justice issues, Starcross seeks to provide an opportunity for learning and growth.
