Oakwood Retreat Center is a unique venue where guests participate freely in creative and transformative work within a nurturing, supportive atmosphere. We work consciously to create and maintain a surround that reflects the beauty and majesty of life and love. Set apart from the busyness of everyday life, the property allows you space to create, heal, learn, and celebrate as needed.
We welcome the spirit and diversity of our guests who come from many different backgrounds. We offer comfortable lodging, healthful, wholesome meals, several spacious meeting spaces, and beautiful gardens and trails for your retreat. Whatever your practice, path, or modality, this is a place you can call home.
Gardens & Trails
The Oakwood gardens are an unparalleled beauty.
Take in the glory of nature on a walk through the hallway of trees in the beautiful World Garden. Stroll by the Circle and vegetable gardens. Roam through the orchard. Walk acres of secluded trails to the White River bordered by bluebells in the spring.
Several outdoor sanctuaries have been created to enhance your meditation as you walk the grounds. The Chartres Cathedral eleven circuit labyrinth is a wonderful place to find your center.
We hope you feel at home when you arrive at Oakwood. Every room has been lovingly decorated, each with it's own theme. Art from local artists is selected to create a natural, peaceful, and often magical ambience.
Lodging is available for up to fifty people (based on double or triple occupancy). Large and several smaller meeting rooms are available for use. The main dining/conference hall, and guest houses, are wheelchair accessible.
Guests rave about our healthful, wholesome, organic meals. We believe cooking with a spirit of love is just as important as the ingredients. We serve organic vegetables and herbs from the garden when they are in season. Local and regional products are used as they are seasonally available.
