CERIMON HOUSE is a nonprofit arts & humanities organization, located in the heart of the NE Alberta Arts District of Portland, Oregon. Established in 2009, we offer a wide array of cultural programming and focus on the 4 C’s of our mission: Community, Creativity, Curiosity, and Ceremony. The Creative Path Walk is a popular monthly installation of a large-scale contemplative walking pattern, and as one of our signature programs, it synthesizes the Cerimon House mission by bringing the community into an immersive experience that is deeply artful, educational, and ceremonial. Stories about the Cerimon House monthly labyrinth have been featured in numerous Portland publications, and on “Best of…” listings regarding wellness and mindfulness.

OUR BUILDING & MISSION

We are located in a history-filled building in the heart of a vibrant Arts District. We are so glad to have saved this remarkable fellowship lodge from the wrecking-ball, completed a full renovation, and have now brought a ‘third life’ to the edifice.

Where once the members of a Masonic Lodge gathered in good friendship (1924-86), and then a neighborhood church met in prayer & song (1986-2006), it was the period of abandonment that followed (7 years) that risked the near-ruin of this great space. The board of directors and volunteers of Cerimon House acquired and restored the building with care and ingenuity, and opened the doors to the public in 2015. We now bring cultural arts, education, and celebration into this community harbor.

We invite you inside for our varied and various activities. Visit us in Portland, year-round.
