Favorite Photos ~ Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine ~ Pacific Palisades, CA

One of my favorite places to walk about when I visit the Los Angeles area is the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine near Malibu, on Sunset Blvd. As I was not able to visit LA this year, thought I’d share some favorite photos of this beautiful site that I’ve taken the past several years.

Should you have the opportunity to visit now, please do check their site as due to the corona virus, reservations are now necessary. https://lakeshrine.org/

I am eagerly looking forward to visiting next year. It’s a marvelous place to take the time to stop and smell the roses, meditate and breathe in the beauty. Save time to explore their gift shop where you may find special treasures.
