Welcome to the Template Homestead



We are an intentional community in rural Tennessee that seeks to create a better future through intentions, acts, and deeds, finding new ways forward that are supportive of humanness, purpose, community, kindness and compassion. We embrace the best of what it means to be human, and are champions of our noblest qualities and natures.



One of the projects we currently have underway is Prisma 21, a unique educational program for anyone over the age of 21, which explores practical methods of self-discovery as a guide to personal fulfillment. Prisma 21 also offers retreats designed to meet the specific goals of individuals or groups.



We are also home to the Children’s Garden Path nature programs, which are dedicated to encourage the natural growth patterns of young children, and to provide a warm, caring, safe, natural, and fun ecology with activities designed to support the well being and growth of children.


During the course of the year we are host to numerous educational programs and workshops, exploring the territories of Fear, Forgiveness, Health and Healing, Human Purpose, Stress Management, Life Coaching, Women’s StudiesMeditation, and many more. If you or your group are interested in creating an event into these territories, please let us know.

Life in an intentional community requires processes that both foster the growth of the individual on his or her own journey, as well as the promotion of the well being of community goals and interests. We are happy to share our experiences – both struggles and successes – as we guide ourselves into the future.

spiritual arising, out from an ordered and growing universe…
