Commonweal is a center for learning and research, transformation and discovery. Our programs work in the areas of health & healing; education & the arts; and environment & justice. We are located in Bolinas, California, on land that is part of the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The Commonweal Open House is a special, once-a-year event, when all of our programs gather to share their work with our community. Walk our grounds, visit the Commonweal Garden, learn about our programs, and meet the program directors.
