Serenity Garden

The Serenity Labyrinth garden with its circular design, paths, waterfall and seasonal blooms is the heart of OM Sanctuary. It has been a romantic and inspirational setting for receptions, sacred ceremony, walking meditation and personal inspiration dating back to the former Richmond Hill Inn days. The garden is divided into four quadrants resembling the four directions in a medicine wheel. If you visit in the spring the cherry blossoms rain down on you like a spring shower and in the fall the Kousa dogwood provides edible fruit.
