Osage Forest of Peace

About us


"God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything."

 ~ Bede Griffiths


Inspired by the wisdom and vision of Father Bede Griffiths, Osage Forest of Peace was founded as a monastic ashram in 1979 by Sr. Pascaline Coff and the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.  Today the Forest of Peace continues to embody its original vision by being an interspiritual, contemplative retreat center and:

• by drinking from the wellsprings of the great spiritual traditions;
• through contemplative silence, a simple life-style and communal living;
• by offering hospitality to all who seek to deepen their spiritual practice.

Osage Forest of Peace does this by creating an environment for contemplative retreats, daily prayer and meditation. We also offer programs focusing on personal, socio-ecological and global healing – all within a context of ecumenical spirituality, East-West dialogue, and interfaith encounters.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
