Juniper Level Botanic Garden is a not-for-profit, 28-acre educational, research, and display garden owned by Tony and Anita Avent. Established in 1988, JLBG is an institutional member of the American Public Gardens Association and home to the Center for Mindfulness and Nonduality. 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 and offers occasional 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 a personal self and reality.

The botanic gardens radiate a quiet wisdom pointing directly to the ineffable, invisible, and intelligent aware presence that every spiritual tradition calls the Absolute.
