In a world full of technological overload & constant movement, sometimes we forget the joy in simplicity. Learning to take a few quiet, timeless moments to ourselves is vital. With so much going on all the time, it’s best to try and cultivate a sense of self-awareness. This way, you won’t be in mental turmoil, constantly piling life’s daily leftovers on top of one another.
That’s exactly what I did when I came to the Peace Awareness Labyrinth & Garden. I’ve wanted to visit it for months, I just never made a strong enough effort to go. Fortunately, after a relaxing morning at the spa, I realized to my surprise, the garden wasn’t to far from where I was. It was that moment I knew I had to go.
When I arrived I inadvertently found parking on a little street adjacent to the building. It was a beautiful Father’s Day, bright & sunny but not scorching hot. When you walk up the the house you have to press the button to be buzzed in.

Since I was a first time visitor, I decided to join along the tour the was being given of the “Guasti Villa.
History of the “Guasti Villa”
PAL&G is housed in a gracious Italian Renaissance mansion, called, in its day, the Guasti Villa. It was built between 1910-1914 by Secundo Guasti, who owned the world’s largest winery at the time. In 1937, Busby Berkeley, famous Hollywood director and choreographer, bought the Guasti Villa and resided there adding an additional touch of glamour to the property’s history.
