A spiritual day trip

… a lifetime of blessings

Spend a few hours, a day or more as our guest, take a walk through our gardens, offer candles to the Buddhas, make a prayer in our meditation hall, or just sit and listen to the calming sounds of the forest. Create a closer connection with the divine to receive blessings, protection, healing and good fortune. Or show respect through sacred offerings to the enlightened beings to invite their presence, compassion and wisdom into your existence. Not only will you earn countless benefits for this lifetime and the lifetimes after, but you’ll get to experience Tibetan spiritual and cultural traditions firsthand.
