Do I need to be a Buddhist or a farmer to participate in your Tai Chi, Meditation, Qigong/services?
The answer is ‘No’. Our services are open to those who would like to participate in the peaceful nature of our activities. Please note that services offered may be dependent upon considerations such as Mother Nature.
Where is your location?
We are located just past the blue barn at the end of the private drive. Please note! This is a private residence and we request that our guests only arrive during scheduled activities/services. Our Sangha is located on a private residence / agricultural parcel, located in the Town of Davie. It is a lovely agricultural parcel with several horses, fruit trees and a Spanish Moss Nursery registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Reg Number 4801786. For more information, please refer to contact information. Please, use the provided "Google Map" to find us.
What activities/services do we offer?
For our Tai chi, Zen Meditation, and Qigong Agritourism activities/services please refer to our schedule page. Some of our activities are seasonal such as the mangos, wildflowers, and Spanish moss.
What is Agritourism or agrotourism?
Agritourism combines Florida’s two largest industries, tourism, and agriculture, it involves any agricultural lands/operations, activities that bring together visitors to farms to provide an on-farm recreational experience for consumers. Florida Statute 570.86, defines an agritourism activity as “any agriculturally related activity consistent with a bona fide farm or ranch or in a working forest which allows members of the general public to view or enjoy activities related to farming, ranching, historical, cultural or harvest-your-own attractions for recreational, entertainment or educational purposes.”
Why two names you may ask?
Well to be honest answering this question would be much like Will Ferrell character in the movie ‘Elf’ explaining his wonderfully magical travels from the North Pole to New York City. Which brings me to my next statement, after many years of traveling within the South Florida area we finally have a Sangha of our own. It is here within our Agritourism activities one can enjoy our services amongst the tranquility of the oak trees and the beauty of the Spanish Moss and their delicate flowers. Experience the regal magnificence of the horses as they go about their daily life as you ponder and explore your Tai Chi, Qigong, Meditation, and Buddha nature. If you prefer, perhaps pluck your own mango from our trees as you contemplate your joyful life, during mango season of course. Speaking of mangos, maybe you would like to have your very own mango tree. The Nolan’s generally have between five to ten pick/dig your own mango saplings per season. Please bring your own planter container /soil.
