"As you awaken to the peace center within you, you can share that energy and contribute to peace in this world."
John-Roger, PAL&G Founder
Peace Awareness Labyrinth & Gardens (PAL&G) was established as a non-profit spiritual center dedicated to peace and spirituality. The sponsors of PAL&G, the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA), wanted to share this beautiful center with others and so it was opened to public.
Called a "Spiritual Oasis in the City," its purpose is to provide a place for people to take time out of their busy lives to visit, reflect, and be rejuvenated by the peace and nature present.
With this in mind an outdoor stone labyrinth, using the same design as the Chartres Cathedral labyrinth, was built in 2001 and spiritually dedicated.
Next the Asian-themed meditation garden was completed in 2002. It is small, but spectacular with over sixteen water fountains, a koi pond and several intimate seating areas tucked away to reflect, repose, meditate. Courtyard garden areas were added.
The center opened to public in 2002. Volunteer docents are available 5 days a week.
Visitors are welcome to reflect in nature, "unwind the mind" walking the labyrinth, meditate, and even tour the beautiful historic building.
Classes and workshops are offered exploring topics focusing on personal growth and practical spirituality.
PAL&G is often featured in online sites as "one of the best places in Los Angeles to visit."
