Land of Medicine Buddha provides classes and space for group and personal retreats, on a forested piece of property at the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just a mile and a half from Soquel Village, California. They are an active Buddhist community. Through teaching, meditation, prayer, retreat and community service, they engage in preserving and transmitting the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values, specifically in the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa.

Personal Experience: This spot was such a great and peaceful addition to our road-trip through coastal California. It reminded me a bit of some of the Buddhist monasteries we have out in San Diego, but far greener!  It’s out the the thick of it, surrounded by lush forest.  The tranquility surrounds you. We hiked various trails and came across so many secret gems along the way.  Pay attention to the tiny details around you as there is hand-made beauty planted all around!
