We loved visiting this historical landmark up in Encinitas. This temple is a part of Self-Realization Fellowship and offers the community a place to meditate and find your flow. Go check it out! 🧘🏽♀️ #meditation #selfrealizationfellowship #bestofsandiego♬ La Route Blanche - Sarah Coponat
Get ready to get your zen on. Beautiful, peaceful grounds. Pleasant helpful staff. A gift to yourself to attend. Had to make reservations. Entry from 1-2p on the day I attended. I believe there are 2 entry times a day. Check website. Was open until 4:30. I spent just under 2 hours enjoying the grounds. Many little nooks to sit and leave the world behind. You don't need to know how to meditate to enjoy this place. If you sit and enjoy and be fully present in the moment...you are meditating. Gift shop, small unique museum of the founders things/history.
It was mostly, pretty quiet and people were respecting the space for meditation. Not too many selfie-takers. The trickling and flowing water created soothing sounds, the ocean breeze could be felt in certain areas, and there were shaded spaces to sit quietly and reflect. Small space, but well maintained. Some of the tropical climbers are incredibly huge! It doesn't take long to just walk through the entire garden. You can spend 15 minutes there or sit for hours and enjoy.
This place was amazing very beautiful very well-kept I wish that being a meditation Garden kids weren't allowed to be all loud and screaming and running around. It is a meditation Garden not a zoo. I was able to utilize this area to write my book while I was on vacation there. The gate manager was very friendly as well. I would definitely would like to look into taking the whole retreat experience next time I'm in that part of town.
This is one of the best places to meditate on the west coast. The gardens are peaceful, beautiful, and serene. There are pond with waterfalls cascading down between them. Swimming in all the ponds are huge Koi. Meditation benches are set up all over the gardens. The monks of SRF take care of the plantings, blessing them and the grounds with their sweet vibration. I love this place so much that I come back every year.
Closure dates: 7/4, 9/5, 11/24, 12/17, 12/23, 12/25
