What is the purpose of the meditation garden?

It is a space to provide solace, calm and peace in our otherwise hectic world. It is a space that welcomes you into a state of mind where you may contemplate, search for answers, reground yourself with nature or just be as you are.


How do I use the meditation garden?

There is no wrong way to use the space. Simply sit on one of the comfortable benches, or walk the sacred circle entering from the east and walking clockwise. Check out our Informational Guide on how to walk the circle and learn about the importance and meaning of each sacred stone. During the summer, enjoy touching and looking at the native plants near the cardinal directions and benches. Each plant has a meaning and was planted specifically for use in the meditation garden. Seeds were graciously donated by members of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe with help from The Lippman School.


What inspired the design of the meditation garden?

The circular shape and layout of sacred stones has been adapted from the Native American Medicine Wheel and Sun Bear and the Bear Tribe. The wheel has been used by nearly all indigenous peoples around the world to illustrate spiritual, religious and societal teachings. It has been a tool for aligning with the seasons of the year and for tracking chronological events and genealogy, as well as planetary and astrological occurrences. Once a wheel has been built, it becomes a sacred, ceremonial center and a place to pray and meditate. Whether it be a place to contemplate our higher purpose, a place to strengthen our connection with nature or a place to learn about others, all are welcome.


All are welcome, weekdays during business hours 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the Dominican Sisters of Peace for providing the funding to help rejuvenate the meditation garden. We would also like to thank a few dedicated volunteers, Amy Macak, Nancy Gardner and Carolyn Kean for their hardwork and research.
