Kiva Style: Former Tipi Residents Build a Rammed-Earth Home

Working with earth, wood, glass and crystals, Tom and Flame Lutes have created a truly sacred space in the Colorado high country.

In their bedroom, Tom and Flame display a collection of sacred items, each embodying a reminder of their spiritual path. The home is too small for a designated shrine or meditation room, but placing this altar in the corner of the bedroom creates a spot that reminds the couple of their dedication to spiritual wakefulness first thing in the morning and as they go to sleep at night.
