Land of Medicine Buddha provides classes and space for group and personal retreats, on a forested piece of property at the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, just a mile and a half from Soquel Village, California. They are an active Buddhist community. Through teaching, meditation, prayer, retreat and community service, they engage in preserving and transmitting the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values, specifically in the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa.
The campus is located on 108 acres of coastal foothills and stands adjacent to 10,000 acres of redwood forest preserved by the State of California. It is tucked away from the bustle of local beach towns, yet easy to reach. Land of Medicine Buddha (LMB) is a unique and sacred facility. Everyone is welcome; you don’t need to be Buddhist to come for a visit to LMB.
