“Writers for centuries have talked about why interacting with nature is important, and lots of people go on vacations,” says Strayer.
Located on New Zealand’s North Island (about 60 km north of Auckland) lies a 1,000 acre (4 sq km) property owned by one of New Zealand’s wealthiest businessmen, Alan Gibbs. The area is the site of Alan’s private art park known as Gibbs Farm. Open to the public by appointment, the sculpture park features an incredible variety of massive sculptures by some of the world’s most famous artists. For more photos of Alan’s farm go to his site Gibbs Farm.
What’s unique about the artwork is that nearly all of it incorporates the land into it intentionally. Almost all of the sculptures in the collection were commissioned new works as opposed to purchased pieces. After nearly twenty years of development, Gibbs Farm now features over 22 artists from around the world.

Zen brings creativity. And remember, if you want to be one with the creator, you will have to learn some ways of creativity. The only way to be one with the creator is to be in some moment of creativity, when you are lost. The potter is lost in making his pottery; the potter is lost while working on the wheel. The painter is lost while painting. The dancer is lost; there is no dancer, only the dance remains. Those are the peak moments, where you touch God, where God touches you.
