This intimate tour focuses not on meditation, but instead on learning to bring mindful awareness to oneself, and the world around us, through intentional observation and connections.

An experienced guide will provide a foundation for the art of contemplative exploration throughout various Garden spaces, and gently guide awareness away from the busyness of everyday life, back toward the connection to nature and experience of peace.

Each tour will be slightly unique to focus on the current season, weather (occurs rain or shine), and garden spaces. However, these tours are designed and intended to help members continue to enhance future Garden visits through independent mindful practice through all seasons.

Tours will begin in the Atsuhiko and Ina Goodwin Tateuchi Foundation Courtyard starting at 9:00am, and typically last about 45-60 minutes.Space limited to 10 members.

Reservations are required.
