What you'll do

Mindful Meditation with the Koi is an extraordinary opportunity to sit up close and be present with the Koi during your meditation time at the Koi Whisperer Sanctuary & Japanese Gardens. You will experience the peace and tranquility of the Koi swimming right next to you on our Enso Meditation platform as your mindfulness practice becomes highlighted by the sounds and sights of these brilliant fish. After your Mindful Meditation with the Koi, you will have the opportunity to photograph them and understand more about the Koi, their water and our aquaculture and sustainable environment. An unforgettable experience as you will also be photographed with the Koi!! Japanese Tea & Miso Soup will be served in the Mindfulness Meditation Center where you can reflect upon your Mindfulness with the Koi, Airbnb Experience.

M

Hi, I'm M. After 15 years working with Koi, I founded the Koi Whisperer Sanctuary after rescuing a Koi in need. I decided I had to do something to help these amazing, vibrant and intuitive fish that I love. We are licensed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture for Animal Rescue as we founded the now renown Koi Whhisperer's KOI RESCUE & ADOPT A KOI. M has travelled extensively, speaking and documenting throughout Japanese Gardens in the United States as well as England, The Netherlands, and Japan for the Nishikigoi, Japanese Koi. In helping save the Koi and raising awareness for them, I discovered that the Koi are actually enlightening and helping so many people. Mindful Mediation with the Koi is an extraordinary opportunity to sit up close and be present with the Koi during your meditation time.
