Both airports are the same distance from the center, which is approximately 80 miles.

Items to Bring

Due to the many seasons of Texas, it is important to bring the appropriate clothing by checking the weather ahead of time.

  • Bring clothing that is comfortable and helps you feel relaxed.
  • Bring your personal towel, toiletries, and hygiene items.
  • Since you have to remove your shoes before entering buildings, it's best to bring slip-on shoes.
  • Bring a water bottle to carry your water.
  • In the winter, it is especially important to bring warm sweaters, a heavy jacket, leggings, hats, and gloves.
  • In the spring and summer, it is important to bring light clothing as it can get very hot.
  • If you plan on hiking or walking around, bring tennis shoes or boots.
  • In the spring, summer, and fall, bring bug repellent.
  • For classes, make sure to bring a notebook and 2-3 pens, so that you can take notes.
  • For mantras and meditation class you may bring a shawl.
  • We recommend bringing sunblock, an umbrella when raining, and a flashlight for walking at night.


Because this is a spiritual center, do not bring short shorts, short skirts, tank tops, and similar revealing clothing. A shirt must be worn at all times.
