  • I have attended several times. The atmosphere is tranquil. There is a kind of realism here, too. I don't feel the fakeness of Starbucks. Glad to find a place to be me.

  • Not being a religious person, when my wife suggested going here I was very surprised, but I'm so glad she did!! The temple is an absolutely beautiful and serene place. The grounds of the retreat are a joy to wander around. There is also a cafe which does a lovely carrot cake and coffee, which I may add, were very reasonably priced! We will definitely be going back!
  • Beautiful and peaceful place to be at. This place is open for everyone and they do two free 15 mins meditation sessions during the day. The sounds of the birds and peaceful climate will take you into a different world.Massive gardens and a lovely cafe and a gift shop on site. This place is perfect if you would like to go out for the day. No entry fee.
