Sunrise Ranch is one of the longest-standing Intentional Communities in the USA. Founded in 1945, and located about 10 miles west of Loveland, Colorado, Sunrise Ranch has 70-80 multi-generational residents living and working together on 360 acres in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

The community has weekly worship services, an elected governing board, regular community meetings, internship and visitor programs and a retreat and conference business handling groups up to 200. We also run a farm , growing organic vegetables both in our gardens and green houses, along with raising grass-fed beef.

Sunrise Ranch honors Universal Being in all its forms—through people, through nature and through all creation. We see this attitude of honor for Universal Being as the pivotal factor for the future of humanity.

Most of all, we honor and welcome the expression of Universal Being through ourselves. We believe that this orientation in living is what opens the door for a full knowing of the wisdom and love that is within everyone. It is what lets the individual give their greatest gift to the world and know the greatest fulfillment that is possible for a human being.

All of Sunrise Ranch is dedicated as a teaching and demonstration site for this essential wisdom—both the inner knowing of Universal Being and the practical application of that knowing. This is why we practice and teach sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table food preparation. This is what is behind all the workshops, conferences, concerts and courses that we offer. This is what we teach in our internship programs and in all our courses for spiritual awakening and personal development. Sunrise Ranch exists to embody this truth and to bring it to the world.

We believe that Universal Being is doing its best to incarnate and express fully through each person, not as a separate reality but as the core reality of who they are. And when it does, that person becomes whole and creates wholeness in their world. They bring healing to the land, to other people and to the planet. Whole people—whole world.

This is what allows our individual worlds to thrive. This is why Sunrise Ranch is flourishing. And it is the experience of this simple, profound truth that will let Planet Earth become the garden home that it is destined to become.

To us, this is not just a nice idea, but a guiding principle to be embodied in everything we do. If you agree, we welcome you to join with us in bringing this experience to the world.
