Sunrise Ranch includes those of us who live here and form the core of this community.
Sunrise Ranch residents gather in a circle just before decorating the Christmas tree and the Pavilion on December 4, 2019.
We are an intentional spiritual community, passionately committed to our conscious evolution. We are also committed to each other and what we are bringing to the world together. Most of all, we are devoted to the spirit of Universal Love that brought us together and inspires us every day.
Sunrise Ranch was founded in 1945, and we are one of the oldest intentional communities in America. We embrace anyone who visits here and anyone who connects with us in virtual space—on our website, on Facebook, or on our mailing list. To us, you are all part of our community. We see ourselves as part of the broader community of awakening human beings all around the world.

We find we are entering a new paradigm for how people relate to each other. In a world where neighbors in housing developments and apartment buildings often never meet, we are finding new ways to connect with people of all ages and from many diverse backgrounds.We know that when people come to Sunrise Ranch, they feel the surround of love substance in this valley. This spiritual atmosphere has formed out of all the loving service from people down through the decades and from the communion with nature and the land itself. As the Sunrise Ranch community of today, we feel responsible for this atmosphere and for our contribution to it. It is the atmosphere of true home.

There are members of our community who have lived at Sunrise Ranch for more than 50 years, and there is usually at least one person living here who has arrived within the past month. Typically, people who join the core staff at Sunrise Ranch come first as a visitor or as a participant in our Full Self Emergence Program.
