This is a perfect place for meditation and prayer. Even if you are not religious, this place is amazing for simple relaxation, and being present. I have come with art supplies in the past, and was able to freely experiment without any interruptions. There are many seating areas, as well as a beautiful koi pond, and views of the ocean. Note that there are two or three drinking fountains within the gardens.
Just when you are happy to sit alone and ponder the Pacific, you are pulled away to the SRF Hermitage. And, there, sitting again, the pieces that were unanswered from past sit downs with yourself in real and dreamed of places become whole. You are in The Garden of Eden. No snakes, no apple trees, no human that you see. There are some places on the planet where you talk to yourself lovingly, selecting a channel of insight that raises your head and face to your own realization of being the best you can be. Here, is where you start the journey that creates the immortal soul, that is you. Located near the end of Sunset Boulevard as you approach the Pacific Coast Highway in the Pacific Pallisades, between Santa Monica & Malibu. Refreshing and Ressurecting! You'll see.
