Several gardens will emerge and grow at One World Wellness beginning in the coming months. Dwelling in outdoor spaces allows people to connect with nature, an experience that is so important and needed in our society today.
"Biophillia" is a term coined by etymologist Edmund Wilson to describe our love for nature, plants and trees. Because the natural world gives us life, we have an inherent desire to be in close proximity to it. Studies show that this connection to the source of life-sustenance, our living Earth, has very beneficial effects on health and enriches the spirit. The gardens & natural spaces described below will provide environments for community events, yoga education and meditative practices.
Visit the gardens full of sunflowers, tiger lillies and many more both annual and perennial. Flower beds located in mostly sunny locations as well as one rock garden bed for shade-loving plants. There are also several container pots located on the property with a wide variety of flowers.
Placement of zen rock sculptures, otherwise known as cairns, create a peaceful, zen-like environment for sitting meditation, qi gong or yoga practice. Designed within a 1700's barn foundation, the PreZence Garden connects the past and future, with presence in this very moment,
through mindful practice.
Asian Tea Garden
Stone steps lead to a "Tsukibai" that provides clean water for handwashing to symbolize purification. The One World Tea Garden also features a patio space for events and workshops. Guests can enjoy a serene meeting spot amid green bamboo canes, beautiful evergreens and flowering shrubs. Seating available for up to 12 people.

with our thoughts,
we make the world."
