I host several yoga retreats at this location for a variety of reasons. Simply put, it's a stunning, relaxing, rejuvenating getaway. Close enough to town, but nestled into the forest, so you feel like you are far away. Besides the physical location, the food is delicious. Always vegetarian and fresh, I have yet to have a meal there that I didn't talk about for hours afterwards. For my retreats, we request 3 meals per day, but I think there is only breakfast and lunch open to the public. Rooms are simple and clean. It's really nice to have a private bathroom as well. In the summer the pool is open, and there is a sauna for enjoyment, too. You can also just go there for the day and explore the enchanted forest and other hiking trails. The nature surrounding LMB is breathtaking, and you just have to experience it for yourself.

I highly recommend this tranquil, soul nurturing and peaceful retreat for a day visit or a meditation. I did the 8 meditation walk through the woods and it takes about an hour to do it mindfully while fully immersing and enjoying the beauty of the redwoods and breathing in the spectacular clean air. The grounds are maintained beautifully and every meditation spot offers a bench to sit for reflection. I loved my "tree cathedral" and I learned about this from my friend. Step into the center of a ring of redwoods and look up at the magnificent trees reaching up as high as the eye can see and open to receive the magical healing of these vibrant trees.

Land of Medicine Buddha at 5800 Prescott Rd, Soquel, CA 95073-9407 is a Lovely Place to Hike. Be forewarned, gates are closed on the weekends to all but guests. There are temples, stupas, a koi pond, the vajra verses slogan signs, redwood forest, and oh so much more to see...

We attended a retreat and were pleasantly surprised that our room was so nice! Queen bed, private bathroom, and cute decor. Nice areas to hike, great pool, and perfect venue for meditation. Staff were very friendly and served good vegetarian meals.

This is an awesome place especially if you are spiritual with Buddhism or you need peace outside city limits. Beautiful place, lush green even in winter. You have a lot of hiking trails with loops of 1.2 miles, 2 miles, 6 miles and 8 miles. We did 8-mile hike and it was beautiful. You can even reserve stay with them and involve in activities organized.
