Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia=Regina RICA
We were in a two-day review and planning workshop in Bakasyunan Resort, Tanay, Rizal. Even if Tanay belongs to the political geographical region I belong, I haven't been there. It is astonishing to see a wide upland rolling hills, with farms, forests, resorts, private enclaves and vacation houses. It also heals the spirit by looking at the series of mountain ranges in the horizon, fantastic sights especially for those of us living in concrete jungles.
Before leaving for home in the city, we decided to visit two prominent landmarks in the area, the Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia or Regina RICA and the Daranak Waterfalls.
The presence of this herd grazing in the lower part near the borders of the property, completes the picture. I remember St Joseph being a shepherd before being the husband of Mary. I appreciate also the presence of those rock boulders, how serendipitous to be the area for sheep grazing, how lovely!
The site is reached in 2.5-3 hours from Manila. For more information about Regina RICA please visit their site at: http://www.reginarica.org/home
