Food for Body, Mind, and Spirit

Drawing on influences from the local harvest in Boone to Bombay and even the Caribbean, our chefs aim to please the palate with vegetarian nourishment that will leave you deeply satisfied.

Our Garden

Growing In Our Garden

We grow a variety of fresh and delicious fruits, vegetables, and flowers right here at The Art of Living Retreat Center. Our garden is as much a place for nourishment of the body as it is a place of nourishment for the soul. Walk the paths as many staff, volunteers, and journeyers have before.
Eating locally grown organic food in our whole lifestyle and panchakarma retreats.

Yoga and meditation classes were really great. They really energized me and I’m looking forward to returning. The vegetarian menu was quite a treat. A great experience.
