About Land Of The Medicine Buddha
Land of the Medicine Buddha is an environmentally conscious meditation and retreat center set on 108 acres of coastal foothills standing adjacent to 10,000 acres of redwood forest. It is an active Buddhist community dedicated to the practice of peace, love, joy, and truth. This is an idyllic spot to disconnect, to slow down and get quiet. We then have the opportunity to retreat. But we are not retreating away from our life. We are retreating from the almost constant distraction from life.
Know that guests coming to Land of Medicine Buddha are asked to observe the Five Precepts:
1. NO KILLING (this includes all insects)
2. NO LYING (we invite you to include harsh speech)
3. NO STEALING (this includes borrowing without asking permission)
4. NO SEXUAL MISCONDUCT (any sexual activity that will cause suffering to another being)
5. NO INTOXICANTS (this includes tobacco and any alcohol)
