Retreats and Classes

Juniper Level Botanic Garden has been offering horticulture classes since the late 1980s as part of our mission as an educational, scientific, and research-based botanic garden. We aim to raise awareness of the horticultural and gardening mis-information offered by well-meaning garden speakers and writers, from plant adaptability to soils and fertilizers.

Our horticultural classes, under the guidance of master plantsman and horticulturist Tony Avent, share how our research has differed many times from conventional gardening "wisdom."

Anita Avent uses the gardens to demonstrate the ancient and timeless philosophy of nonduality with those who are dedicated to uncovering the true nature of beingness and questioning an external reality.

There are many avenues for exploring these ancient nondual teachings including the creative and meditative tools of self inquiry, friendship, community, and silence. Anita facilitates regular self inquiry classes, informal inquiry groups, and focused nonduality retreats for exploring the nondual teachings while pointing towards the impersonal nature of awareness.
