Our neighbors love us. Please help us continue to be integrity based suck ups in our really lovely neighborhood so we can continue doing what we do in the world.

- Shoes: No shoes in main temple/house. Shoe racks are provided
Rationale: Leave your stories, excuses and the outside world at the door. Enter in peaceful renewal.

- No Smoking on the property. Vaping allowed outside only please.

- Early check in may be available. Please inquire.

- Late check out may be available. Please inquire.

- Open staircase and French Doors: New Orleans style doors with a railing only. There is no deck. Do not fall over the railing. These are the reason we don't encourage kids under 12, even though we love kids. Be safe and smart. Note: The law of gravity applies, even in our temple. What you toss over the railing will land below. Please don't spit, throw garbage, fall, pee or drop anything over the railing. It lands in the walkway. We will all walk through it. It'll be gross. Thank you for keeping it un-gross.

Tressa was an incredibly welcoming and thoughtful host. We had a beautiful stay at their hidden getaway. From the gorgeous steam shower down to the tiny accents and details, we couldn't have imagined a more tranquil place to spend a weekend. Definitely bookmarking this for any future Portland stays!

The space is beautiful and open. Perfect for a romantic getaway. It was easy to get to, and a parking space is provided. The steam room is a perk, we used it almost every day. We would definitely come back.

Greetings! I am a corporate and cannabis industry mindfulness and relationship intelligence elite teams and leadership consultant with 30+ years as an entrepreneur in medical and consumer services while also working for 20 years as a neuro-cognitive pathologist.

Concurrently, I've amassed a 25+ year (Wow. That's a big number in writing.) history as a student and teacher of deeper communication, intimacy, sensuality, tantra, domina, great sex, vibrant life and love; basically Better Relationships - with Sacred Partnering and my husband and I facilitate groups, individual sessions and retreats globally that help people live vibrantly in many ways. I believe intimacy, sensuality and the choice of responding (versus reacting) and learning the tools to connect in deep, real, meaningful ways are vital skills and ones we often let go or ignore for a lot of reasons.

I'm super happily married. We have teenage girls who are our greatest teachers. Of course I lose my shit sometimes. I teach and attend yoga and meditation. It helps.

We are also musicians. We have a lot of kirtan (ancient mantra based music) here at the Temple. We are certified yoga teachers (200hr), meditation teachers and always students.

We also make hemp CBD products.

Anything else? Dogs generally like us and cats do as much as can be expected :). We are mostly vegetarian. I work globally as a psychic medium (Condensed story: Shinto. Drowning as a child. Vibrant Sacred). Life is a beautiful gift. Happy to connect or simply share our sacred space through this forum. Happy to answer any questions and to have openings to ask them of others.

In gratitude, vibrant life and the practice of love.
