This program was very helpful to me physically and emotionally and was well worth the complicated travel arrangements I had to make! Kudos to The Santa Cruz Experience shuttle; professional, on time and excellent driver.

This Rejuvenation Program has been a buffet of helpful ideas/practice at Land of Medicine Buddha nestled in a Coastal Redwood forest. The buffet includes Qigong, simple meditation practice, self-massage using reflexology/joint massage, aromatherapy, herbology using herbs for Autumn and Spring, essential oils, healing teas, woodland walking. The daily Qigong, and meditation are keystone activities in this program (for me), Breige, site coordinator, is very helpful before and during the trip. No problems with my gluten-free nutrition needs. Outstanding homemade breakfast granola. This is my first Road Scholar Trip chosen close to home, to learn if consequences of serious health issues would interfere with the trip. And, to learn more about this area I now call home... Colorado transplant. Great choice, great experience, great Staff at The Land of Medicine Buddha. Last of all, oak woodlands, coastal scrub & chaparral, and sand dunes are nearby. Highly recommend this trip.

Very peaceful and quite hiking in the giant red woods. Food balanced and tasty. So much information on improving your health with knowledgeable teachers. Able to get a outstanding lady with personal information to take care of your body with a massage for your own needs. Will come away very nourished, relaxed with a wealth of information for a calmer way of life style. Try it, you will not be disappointed. Gerri from IL 22 in program March30 to April 2, 2014
