Inter-spiritual Contemplative Retreat Center
The Osage Forest of Peace is an interspiritual contemplative retreat center. We are a sanctuary for those seeking silence and solitude. The staff is comprised of a resident community of people from a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds. We value simplicity, compassion and diverse approaches to the Sacred. Osage Forest of Peace provides an environment that is supportive of all those who desire to engage in "dialogue of the heart" through prayer and meditation.
Mission: Osage Forest of Peace... cultivating peace, healing and renewal in a contemplative, interspiritual environment.
The Forest is waiting for you to come hike! (While practicing social distancing and/or wearing a mask, of course!) 🌳🌞✨
Central Concepts of Buddhism: Interconnectedness, Compassion, Suffering, Emptiness, Impermanence, Non-attachment, Karma & Samsara, Cycle of Life & Death. (If you need Closed Captioning, please do so before you open the video)

After a period of closure due to COVID-19, the Forest will be open to retreatants June 1st contingent upon case numbers. We will be taking all measures possible to keep our visitors and staff safe and to keep our facilities properly sanitized.
The safety protocol in place is as follows:
- Guests' temperature will be taken upon check-in
- Meals will be eaten in a socially-distanced manner, or guests can choose to take their meals in their cabin
- Meals will no longer be buffet-style, and will instead be served
- Masks will be worn in the Main House (unless eating)
- Meditation will be done with masks on and will be socially-distanced. Space in our Chapel is limited so participation will be first come, first served.
- Coffee & tea bars as well as the library are only to be used while wearing gloves
- Guests will remove their used bedding before departure and take it to the Main House for washing; guests will no longer be making the bed for the next visitor
- Double-occupancy cabins are not available at this time except for visitors who have been sheltering in place together already.
- All frequently-used spaces and items in the Main House and elsewhere will be sanitized multiple times daily by staff.

Not only do we have all kinds of beautiful flowers out at the Forest — we have some really lovely fungi as well! 🍄🌞🌿
