Reflecting pond with footbridge

The pond is a beautiful place to relax, read, pray or meditate. Wander over the footbridge and enjoy the landscape, koi fish and our resident ducks or geese.

Labyrinth

This one-acre sacred space, created by our partner, TKF Foundation is designed to help Center visitors find peace, healing and hope in a unique retreat setting. While journeying through the labyrinth you’re encouraged to disengage and meditate so your spirit will be renewed and refreshed. Comfortable benches are carefully placed for your rest and reflection. Brochures about the labyrinth are available at our Welcome Center.

Peace Garden

This unique Zen-type garden is a retreat setting bursting with glorious seasonal foliage. A Peace Pole is planted at the entrance as part of a world-wide effort to promote global unity. Please take a moment to offer up a prayer for peace with the many others who have been here before you.
