The architectural elements and other objects common to all the Parks of Study and Reflection reflect the way in which the human being has listened to and interpreted the echoes of the sacred from the most ancient of times and in all cultures.

The following elements may be found in every Park of Study and Reflection:

monolith

Monolith

Architectural forms like our monolith have been found throughout history all around the world. In other ages they were called the “axi mundi” or axis of the world: that which united the heavens and the earth.

One could reach the heavens by climbing a tree, a vine, a stairway, a mountain…

Constructed of stainless steel to reflect the age we live in, and engraved with the date of the inauguration of the Park, the monolith sets the Park’s coordinates in time and space.

The monolith is scheduled to be built at Hudson Valley Park in the future.  Pictured: Punta de Vacas Park.

Stele – Donor Wall

Just as the ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Sumerian, or Mayan steles carved in stone give testimony of the events or significant deeds that took place at the time of their creation, the donor wall displays the engraved names of all who contribute to the construction of the Park.

The Stele was erected at Hudson Valley Park in 2013.

Fountain

In all creation myths and legends having to do with cosmogony, water is the source of life, with its infinite attributes: nourishing, giving life, purifying, caring, bringing rebirth…

The Fountain allegorically represents the fusion of feminine and masculine principles as the source of all energy.

The fountain was built at Hudson Valley Park in 2011.

The Portal

Entrance gates mark the boundary separating two spaces: the space of the external world and that of the intimacy of home; the space of noise and that of silence; the space of daily life and that of seclusion and reflection.

When one passes through the Portal, one enters a different time and space from that of daily life. Marking the boundary between the external world and the interior of the human being, the Portal is designed to bring about a change in the internal state of everyone who enters.

The Portal will be constructed at Hudson Valley Park as part of the future project.  Pictured: Punta de Vacas Park

The Hall

Its interior symbolizes the profound internal experience through a spherical space devoid of icons, symbols or images. Externally, the walls frame a sphere that in its high point aims towards the heights. The form of the Hall is that of a Mandela with four entrances.

The Hall will be built in the future at Hudson Valley Park in the future.  Pictured: Manantiales Park.

The Center

The Center is a place dedicated to seminars, retreats and celebrations with accommodations for overnight stays.
