Juniper Level Botanic Gardens
(28+ acres) was established in 1988 by Tony Avent and his late wife Michelle as a privately owned botanical garden at 9241 Sauls Road, Raleigh, North Carolina. The botanic garden is open eight weekends per year; visits at other times must be scheduled in advance with the garden’s owners or garden staff.
The Center for Mindfulness and Nonduality at Juniper Level Botanic Garden was established by Anita Avent in 2015, offering nonduality retreats, mindfulness meditation classes, and individual and group self-inquiry sessions for those exploring and seeking a fundamental shift in perception by meditating on the deeper questions of the nature of the assumed personal self and external reality.
The botanic gardens radiate a quiet wisdom which point directly to the ineffable, invisible, and intelligent aware presence that every spiritual tradition calls the Absolute.
