      Peace Labyrinth & Gardens is a place where people can be in retreat without leaving the city of Los Angeles.
      Come and walk the hand-carved stone outdoor labyrinth, find peace and quiet in the meditation garden, or chant the names of God in the Sacred Tones Workshop.

      People from many walks of life find Peace Labyrinth and Gardens an ideal spot for personal recharging and for group activities.

      There are also evening and weekend classes focused on the teachings of the Spiritual Heart through the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA), including classes on the benefits of walking the labyrinth.

      The Labyrinth and Gardens and MSIA are dedicated to Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of yourself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality.
      Labyrinths are a kind of archetypal design that have been in existence for hundreds of years as part of mystical and religious traditions and cultures throughout the world.


      The meditation garden offers sanctuary to reflect and recharge in natural beauty with the sounds of water all around.
