Seven Chakra Gardens
Each garden contains flowers, symbols, shapes, sculptures, and medicinal plants that resonate with one of yoga’s classic seven chakras, or energy centers, of the human body, offering healing support and peaceful energy. Meditate, do yoga, write, read, paint, mindfully walk or simply relax in the abundant beauty, and directly connect with Nature and Pachamama—Mother Earth. The Crown Chakra garden includes an ancient pre-Incan Lucuma tree, that is still fruit-bearing.
