Who We Are

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

91 acres protected by a conservation easement, ensuring that our property’s intact habitat and productive farmland is protected forever.
