Day Visitors

Just coming for a walk or a look around? We recommend a weekday or a Sunday afternoon. Starting April 1, 2016, the center will be closed to day visitors (other than organized groups) on:

  • Saturdays (all day)
  • Sundays (until noon)

Retreats, Meetings or Conferences

Bring friends, staff or a work group to Land of Medicine Buddha and let them bask in the magic and peace of our quiet setting. We provide beautiful meeting rooms, audio visual equipment and scrumptious vegetarian meals served buffet style. Take advantage of our woodland paths, swimming, massages or sauna. We can also offer meditation, qi-gong classes or Buddhist talks to enrich your day. To check availability, please contact us using the form below.

Group Tours and Visits

If you’re group is larger than 6 people, please contact LMB Reception Office to schedule your visit and arrange any meal plans, schedule a personalized tour or a Dharma talk (for an additional donation). Land of Medicine Buddha works hard to maintain just the right environment for your hikes.

By making a donation from groups that visit the land you help ensure the sustainability of our center. To get more information or schedule one of these day events, please contact the Reception office by phone (831) 462-8383, or email (see sidebar). Please give us at least 48 hours notice.

PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer taking bookings for hiking groups. The entrance to Nisene Marks State Park is at Aptos Creek Fire Rd, Aptos, CA 95003. Please use that entrance for your hike.
