"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 by the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) as a non-profit center dedicated to peace and spirituality, as a way to share this beautiful center with the 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 by PAL&G's Founder, John-Roger, DSS.
The Asian-themed meditation garden was opened in 2002. It is spectacular with sixteen water features, a koi pond and intimate seating areas tucked away to reflect, repose, meditate. A pergola and courtyard gardens offer additional areas to enjoy.
Visitors are welcome to reflect in nature, "unwind the mind" walking the labyrinth, meditate, and tour the beautiful historic villa.
Classes and workshops exploring topics focusing on personal growth and practical spirituality are offered weekly.
PAL&G is often featured in the news, in magazines, and online sites as "a hidden treasure," and "one of the best places in Los Angeles to visit."
