Welcome to
Tië eldaliéva Elven Spiritual Path


Tië eldaliéva (T-e) (Path of the Star People) is both a 501(c)(3) charitable trust, and a religious organization legally qualifying as a church. As such a trust, we are “Tië eldaliéva Elven Spiritual Path Charitable Trust”, serving to govern, and fund our mission, (i.e. fulfilling the founding donor’s Directive to establish a legitimate Elven church, and a supporting charitable trust), advancing religion, the arts, education, science, and charity, on the behalf of all persons drawn to, and interested in exploring the spiritual dynamics of Elven life, and culture–(“Elves”, in this case, not being represented as the tiny creatures rumored to make Santa’s toys, but as the holistically more graceful, human-like representation). As a church, we are “Yána eldaliéva” (Sanctuary of the Star People; which, whilst S’Elf-identifying more as a religious order, may be generally regarded as) the world’s first legally-recognized “Elven Church”. Established in 2005, and receiving 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in 2020, (and as documented by  Dr. Markus Davidsen), T-e is the preeminent spiritual leader within the Tolkien-based Elven spiritual community. Growing, and globally serving the Elven(-centric) community, we are based in San Francisco, CA, USA.

What IS Elven Spirituality?

Vibration, and resonance; for a moment, let’s talk about vibration, and resonance. A tuning fork that is the frequency of a guitar string, when placed a millimeter-ish away from the string, will cause the string to vibrate along with it. The principle of that phenomenon is called “sympathetic vibration”; i.e. the string is sympathetically vibrating with the tuning fork. Sympathetic vibration makes “sympathetic resonance” possible; Ella Fitzgerald breaking glass with her voice. may be the the most poignant example of that principle. On a much more subtle level, in the context of meditations aligning the mind with higher levels of Consciousness, sympathetic resonance may affect a gnostic experience. The individual gnostic experience of the imaginal planes of existence, particularly in Elven contexts, (typically accessed by reading fantasy literature), is the general basis of Elven spirituality. The specific basis of Tolkien-based Elven spirituality is the gnostic experience of “Endamar (Middle-earth). 

The Gist of Tië eldaliéva Elven Spiritual Path

We draw our inspiration, and spiritual, moral, and ethical living direction from the Elven content within the writings of Professor J.R.R. Tolkien (comprising what is known as “the Legendarium“).  Rather than being anything that resembles a Real Life Role Playing Game, we are as serious, and sincerely devoted to the Elven Spiritual Path as devotees of all Love-based, and Light-based religions may be; however, rather than the Elven Spiritual Path being a religion, per se, we regard it, and cultivate it simply as a path of spiritual inquiry, applying the sacred content Holy Spirit reveals within the Legendarium toward practically, and holistically advancing personal, and communal edification, empowerment, and enlightenment).

The Legendarium’s theological framework is decidedly monotheistic; however, whilst fully embracing, and asserting Endamar’s monotheism, (rather than being monotheistic, or pantheistic), we are a panentheistic spiritual path. We are open to the general public; (we are not a cult.) If you’re interested in exploring this Path, the best starting point is to become familiar with the “Valar”, and the best starting point for establishing that familiarity may is the first two sections of the “Silmarillion”, i.e. “Anulindalie”, and “Valaquenta”.

A Great Sacred Work–One We Need Help to Fulfill

We have humbly undertaken a Great Sacred Work, for all life on Earth. We’re establishing a full-bodied sacred experience, akin to well-established religions, but totally new, and different from them all because its Light is also Elven Light. Our executive team is tiny, and mostly disabled; frankly, we require a lot of people, and brick, and mortar resources to fulfill the Directive establishing the Trust. [Our (fully up, and running–got all the peeps we need to get the Job done) projected Annual General Operations Budget (AGOB) is $1M USD, one million dollars; $10M for a 7-year growth budget.]

We graciously receive a modicum of funding from members, and we anticipate receiving revenue from sales as well. However, we invite, and hope the brunt of the funding for our AGOB to come from very wealthy Tolkien-loving individuals, (including entertainers, and entrepreneurs, such as those above-linked.
