Carl Jung once described the unconscious feminine psychological qualities that he believed to be present in all men as one of the major sources of creative ability and he called it anima. Temple Anima is inspired from the inner beauty that is possessed by all people and can be visibly present at times in the structure of the buildings we inhabit. This structure is intended to touch the collective unconscious that Dr. Jung described and offer our community the space to clear their minds and interference with a sacred burn. This temple has been designed to offer relaxing space during the day with openings for the sunlight and breezes to pass through as well as strategically placed windows for sun gazing at dawn and dusk. The space will be illuminated at night with over a thousand LED’s to offer another realm of experience providing a wide range of aesthetics.

Temple Anima has a triangular shape when viewed from the front or rear extending to a maximum height of fifteen feet tall. This triangular form is the primary structural element of the building and is replicated multiple times to form a basic rectangular shape when viewed from the sides (east or west). A seven foot tall doorway will be located on each of the four sides that open to a vaulted interior with an average ceiling height of eleven feet. The temple provides an open interior space with benches lining both the interior and exterior walls to facilitate large gatherings of people when necessary. Intricate detail will be abundant but we must leave some things for surprise! – ** Check Out The Youtube Video **
