At first I was a bit hesitant, but when I arrived I felt as if I had returned to a primordial home. I fell in love with the forest, the center and the people who live there. I began to receive teachings and read about Buddhism. I found it more and more relevant to my life. It helped me put many things into perspective and see them in a different light. I highly encourage everybody to visit and attend a retreat. You will not regret it!”
