Sunrise Ranch includes those of us who live here and form the core of this community.
Our first of 23 calves was born on June 3, 2020, seen here with his mama and aunties just after being tagged and vaccinated.
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 welcome 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.

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. (The program has been suspended for 2020, but we hope to have it in full swing again next year.)

Being a full-time community as well as resort and conference center, we also offer skilled openings—job positions that require specific or specialized skills. We are seeking talented people to join our spiritual community as full-time residents and members of our staff. As a resident, you can participate in the spiritual life of the community and help us continue to strengthen Sunrise Ranch as a teaching and demonstration site for thriving community. Pay is negotiable. Please visit the Job Opportunities Page for current position listings.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Our alpacas and llamas got their hot-weather haircuts recently. They look so skinny! But they’ll be a lot more comfortable over the summer months.
