Free Tours of the Garden of Infinite Compassion
August 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Sawtooth Botanical Garden will again offer free guided tours of the Garden of Infinite Compassion beginning on May 12 and running through September 29. Tours run from 10-11 AM and are suitable for all ages. SBG Education Director Kristin Fletcher or other trained interpreters will lead walks.
The Compassion Garden was created to honor the 2005 visit of the Dalai Lama to the Wood River Valley and hosts a rare Tibetan prayer wheel, one of 2 of its size in North America. The beautiful prayer wheel was built by Tibetan monks and is filled with a million hand written prayers for peace and well-being.
Designed by landscape architect and Zen teacher Martin Mosko, the many intentional features of the GIC have special meaning. The Garden’s message of peace and love bridges all faiths. It is truly a magical and serene place. The Sawtooth Botanical Garden was honored to be asked to house this remarkable symbol of peace and compassion on behalf of our community.
SBG is located at 11 Gimlet Road, 4 miles south of Ketchum. Details at www.sbgarden.org or call 208-726-9358.
