You are seeing part of the property that belongs to Gilchrist Center, a retreat center of the Fetzer Institute of Kalamazoo. Their mission is to explore the mind/body relationship and to foster love and forgiveness in our world. Karen Armstrong's Charter for Compassion, jointly written by religious leaders from all over the world, was supported in part by the Fetzer.
John Fetzer was a broadcaster who once owned the Detroit Tigers. His statue of Shiva included an arm holding a baseball bat!
