Just wonderful! Very calm andthe Center place! Immediately felt safe and accepted. I came in a very calm period in February so I got a lot of time to explore the history, people and culture of this place. I learned a lot from the incredible gardener Peter Webb where I spend most of my days. The buddhist community is incredibly helpful and the enviroment helps a lot in personal growth! Highly recommend to give it a go!

This experience was beyond any expectation! It is truly a magical place where one can feel very connected to the spiritual aspect of life. I had an amazing time and for sure would like to come back and visit again all the wonderful people I had the opportunity to meet. Thanks so much for the support and the open arms!
