Spiritual Sanctuary of the Black Hills


Pathways is open for the 2015 season

Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary is a quiet place to spend time walking, sitting, contemplating, reflecting or healing in the natural landscape of an eighty-acre private ranch in the sacred Black Hills of South Dakota.


Upon entry into the outdoor sanctuary, visitors are greeted by sculptor Buck McCain's monumental bronze, The Invocation. A one-mile pathway through the forest and meadow will lead to other inspirational sculptures, hand-hewn benches and a meditative labyrinth.


The theme of Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary is "Beyond Belief." Pathways is a place that is open for all who choose to come; a place that is beyond the diversity of beliefs, race, religion, cultures, personal histories and life experiences.


Pathways Spiritual Sanctuary is founded on the virtues of love, compassion, tolerance and forgiveness. Within the Sanctuary all can walk as one and honor the sacredness of life and Mother Earth.


Open daily from 8:00 until dusk through October 29th.


There is no charge to visiting guests
