Retreat to Our Meditation Room
Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast has a beautiful 400-square-foot meditation room. This is a quiet spot for you to discover your true nature – your fundamental awareness/aliveness. Gary, the owner, has been practicing Zen meditation for more than 30 years. He was ordained as a Zen monk/priest in 2003 at Crestone Mountain Zen Center in the Sangre de Cristo Range in Southern Colorado. The creation of this space was a primary motivation for buying the inn. The regular practice in this space informs the mindfulness that is core to our hospitality. That said, this side of our inn is completely understated. Many guests have stayed at Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast without even knowing the meditation room was there, or knowing anything about how important it is to us. It’s there if you want it, and totally unobtrusive if you don’t. For those that don’t take note of this, there is only the feeling of equanimity that pervades our service.
