Residencies at the Forest of Peace

posted in: Announcements
Join us for a month of contemplative living . . .

Osage Forest of Peace provides an opportunity for people to come and live in harmony with the resident community for a month-long immersion experience. More and more people want to live in a contemplative manner in the world, but they may need assistance in learning how to live this way. Here at the Forest of Peace, we can provide you with that opportunity through our Residential Immersion Program.

The Residential Immersion Program consists of the following:

– Immersion into the resident community’s daily prayer and meditation schedule
– Daily work practice
– Regular spiritual direction (if desired)
– Opportunities to participate in a variety of contemplative retreats
– Opportunity to experience the beauty of the Forest and to hike our trails

Residency Rate: $1,000 per month for a standard cabin; $1,200 for the Guest Hermitage.  This reduced rate is offered in exchange for two to three hours of work per day within the community.

Multiple month residencies may be available, subject to cabin availability.  Partial residencies of two to three weeks are also available at a pro-rated cost.

Email us at for an application form.  Acceptance in the Residential Immersion program requires a completed application, essay, reference check, and interview.
