This place is incredibly peaceful. Though I have not been to any of their on-site events, I have taken meditation classes off-site at the Hotel Fauchere in Milford. I love to run the trails through the woods here - The Path of Accumulation is my favorite. Great places to stop and enjoy the forest and really re-charge yourself!

Great understanding of Buddhism- with-out being pushy. Be pre-pared for no air-conditioning- but not too bad- as lots of trees !

This meditation center is the perfect place to leave your troubles behind and reconnect with your soul. They have meditation sessions and workshops and several walking paths on their 80+ acres. Vegan food and inexpensive housing. Love it here!!!

I'm not buddhist, but my time at this meditation center was some of the most peaceful and happiest times of my life. The people there are extremely welcoming and friendly. They brought me in as if I was family and treated me as such. The grounds are secluded in the woods. There are several lakes and rivers close by, so... More

This place is a precious jewel in the beautiful woods of Glen Spey. I went on a personal retreat and received the most loving support and guidance from my wonderful retreat coach. The residents I encountered were friendly and welcoming. The vegetarian meals were delicious and my room was very comfortable, clean and quiet.

May be deceiving when driving up to the gravel parking area for the Meditation Center with its various buildings, but once walking toward the Meditation Center you will be overwhelmed with the scenery. Temple is beautiful and inspiring, a wonderful place for everyone regardless of your beliefs, to spend time in meditation or simply relaxing.
