Nature Preserve and Trails
A 655-acre Nature Cathedral for God
Questhaven offers nearly twenty nature trails that wander through chaparral and oak-lined canyons reaching woodland sanctuaries, and rocky outcrops and hilltops offering panoramic mountain and ocean views. These trails are not intended for recreational use, but rather, are walked in silent reverence and dedicated to one's spiritual quest to discover God in Nature.
Walking these trails in reverent silence, aspirants are lifted in consciousness by practicing these five necessary qualities: attention, attunement, beholding, reception, and at-one-ment.
When the heart is appreciative and the whole being is desirous of God, then the temples of nature open their doors and every voice of nature speaks to us of its own transcendent, God-filled purpose. To sense the Divine within the inner side of Nature, our attitude is lifted and purified, through the expression of appreciation and fondness for all that we are conscious of, present in the out-of-doors.
