Hello and welcome!
As 10K Sanctuary continues the search for a permanent home, we will be holding ritual services at Gold Coat Inn 2901 County Road 175, Leander, TX 78641. We strive for transparency and hope to have many co-creators as we move forward in the process.
A Message from the Board of Directors
10K Sanctuary does not support or condone cultural, institutional racism. The tragic events of police brutality that have come up repeatedly and with more frequency in 2014 are the product of not only racism but the militarization of a “peacekeeping force.” The following stories that have made public news in 2014 are just a sampling of what has become daily expectation in many American communities.

As a religious and spiritual organization, we are devoted to actively eradicating these forms of inhumane treatment and injustice through education, heart-based dialogue, and protest where our members feel called. The Goddess has many names and just as many methods for bringing healing and justice. 10k supports personal truth-speaking for all people, and the truth of this sanctuary is that as a community we must take responsibility for these human tragedies and remove the conscious and unconscious racism toward Black and African Americans in this country, or history will continue to repeat. Today is the day to learn the facts, speak with community members, and answer the call of justice as your deepest heart feels called. As a community we shall not be silent witnesses any longer!
