“The property is amazing. The creek running through it is one of the most amazing places to sit and listen that I have ever been to. I work in the forest industry and am constantly exposed to the wonders of the natural world, and I feel like this is one of the most profound natural spaces I have been to in my life.”
“Menla is so breathtakingly gorgeous, situated on an indigenous sacred land where its magnetic field is very strong… I have so many beautiful photos of the campus from my hikes at dawn on the property, mostly photos capturing the sunrise and the light rays shimmering iridescently on various aspects of nature. I took almost a thousand photos in my short stay there! Truly breathtaking! Even capturing the miracle of having a doe and her fawns surrounding me just several feet away from me!”
“Usually you expect basic accommodations for a Retreat Center, but the deluxe room I stayed in was amazing. All the nature around is very special, and don´t forget to book a massage at the wonderful Spa!”
