    Go to the Art of Living to ease your mind and spirit. There is no reason to go anywhere else. I felt completely cared for by the therapists, practitioners, volunteers and staff. A gift to yourself that is worth every penny.

    Hello and thank you for the question, We do allow children here at the Art of Living Retreat Center with the one exception. The exception is that children under the age of 18 can not stay in our Spa building.
