Finding Calm When You're Under Stress

Join Kate Forrester as she assists you with a mini practice to help you feel calm in these troubled and uncertain times. Kate will be leading you through a series of exercises that include breathing, gentle movement, a body scan and visualization.

Kate is an inspirational teacher and spiritual healer. She helps people let go of their inner blocks and discover how to lead a more balanced, creative and joyful life in alignment with their souls.

For over 30 years, Kate lived in Paris and taught Drama at the internationally famous Centre du Marais. She helped her students overcome their fears and anxieties with her own method based on acting techniques. Later she certified in Sophrology (a French mind-body therapy using breathing, movement and visualisation), hypnotherapy, laughter yoga, and NLP. She integrated these practices into her work to unlock her students' full potential.

She realised that her approach restored the sacred bond between the mind and the body, in harmony with the soul and was profoundly healing.

Today Kate shows people how to let go and live a vibrantly happy life.

[04/02/20]   TODAY at 4:00pm, a special broadcast on finding calm when you're stressed! Featuring friend of the Forest, @Kate Forrester.

Namaste, everyone! My name is John Turnquist, and I live in Lincoln, Ne. I am a mental health therapist, registered yoga teacher, and a spin instructor. I have been teaching yoga for the past four years, and have benefited greatly (mind, body, and soul) from this ancient healing system. I have been coming to Osage Forest of Peace for the past four years, and it has become a special place in my heart. It's my get-away spot when I need to relax, recharge, and embrace stillness. I hope you enjoy the practice I'm sharing with you.

[03/26/20]   There are now active COVID-19 cases reported in Osage County and so the Osage Forest of Peace will be closed to further retreatants from 26 March – 30 April. The Main House is not open to the public during this time. If the Governor should amend his Executive Order, we will take that into consideration, at that time.

Our trails, Zen Garden and Labyrinth remain open. Please sign the liability sheet if you have not done so for 2020. Please practice social distancing as well when meeting or passing people and remember to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently.

Also, we are beginning to post meditation and other programs on our social media. Please tune into our Facebook and Instagram for these updates and to continue to participate in the Forest.

May all be well.

Much peace.


Grateful that our retreat of 19 dwindled amid fear and uncertainty to this Magic 7. Our Qigong Retreat at the Osage Forest of Peace was just perfect.

[03/16/20]   Got cabin fever? We’re looking for a few volunteers to help paint the cabin of our new Guest Services Coordinator! If you’re available sometime this Wednesday or Thursday, please message us and let us know your availability and the best way to contact you!

(PS: Out of concern for volunteers’ health, we will only have two people working in the cabin at a time!)

Spring has arrived at the Forest!

Exploring the Infinite Possibilities of Qi: A Weekend Qigong Retreat
With Christy Hays
March 13 - 15, 2020
Qigong (chee-energy, kung-cultivation) is an ancient Chinese art form that uses gentle, fluid motion to enhance and improve the flow of energy through your body. If dis-ease is caused by the lack of energy or the stagnation of energy then Qigong is its antidote. Sometimes called “moving meditation”, qigong engages your mind and improves focus while improving your health. Qigong can be done by anyone, sitting, standing, or even lying down. During this weekend retreat, we’ll explore the infinite possibilities of Qi through a variety of qigong techniques that can easily be incorporated into your own, on-going practice at home. Register here: http://forestofpeace.org/programlisting/700/exploring-the-infinite-possibilities-of-qi-a-weekend-qigong-retreat/
