About the Unique Meditation Space
Our meditation space is unmatched in Connecticut. You might have to go to Japan to experience a similar traditional atmosphere. The room is adorned with lightly colored wood with traditional designs that create a serene ambiance that soothes the mind and senses. An entire wall is a clear glass window that overlooks a spectacular Zen garden and adjacent tatami room.
