I have been facilitating drumming events at Oakwood for over 20 years; including the Midwest Drumming and Dance Festival, the WomenDrum weekends, and the Ladies’ Spring Fling Drum Thing. I cannot imagine doing these events anywhere else. Women report feeling their stress levels drop when they turn into the drive. During the weekend they are treated to beautiful grounds with gardens and woods; places to walk or be still surrounded by nature; cozy rooms;
and incredible, delicious, and healthy food. Many feel the deep spiritual intentionality upon which Oakwood was founded, and they appreciate it as a place of refuge from the stresses of
their daily lives. Oakwood supports its event facilitators and attendees in ways that guarantee that people go home feeling cared for, revitalized, and connected. I know that Oakwood has
been at the heart of the success of my events for over 20 years.

My spiritual home—an energetic, loving, supportive container for almost 200 nights of silent meditation.
I always feel held in love by the land and the people of Oakwood.
Oakwood is an integral part of my spiritual practice.
The food is a spiritual experience. You can taste the love. Best curried split pea soup ever!

We were looking for a place to bring 10 start-up tech; prior to launching a very
intense 13 week accelerator in Indianapolis and we came across Oakwood Retreat Center and boy did we luck out!! The beautiful setting coupled with terrific service and incredible food literally blew me away. Highly recommend using Oakwood for any type of retreat or gathering.
