About One + Heart: The Story of the Osage Monastery Forest of Peace

Enter the Osage Forest of Peace…

The Divine Mother came to Fr. Bede Griffiths here where he found renewal in visions in his little cabin under the trees.

Tibetan monks and nuns from the Dalai Lama’s Dharamsala in India lived here for a while in community with American Benedictine Sisters and their Osage and Oklahoma neighbors.

This is the story of how Sr. Pascaline Coff, BSPA, and her Sisters were inspired by Fr. Bede and the Second Vatican Council to build this centering place in the cross-timbered forests of Osage County, Oklahoma. Visiting here from around the world, luminaries of the Interspiritual Movement sat at table together with the Sisters and friends, then helped wash the dishes afterward. They were part of the unitive consciousness that is emerging to awaken humankind.

There is something here at The Forest of Peace still that draws people of every faith (and of none) to find spiritual renewal. If your inner being hungers to deepen, there is sustenance here. Come to the Forest through these pages and read its story. Settle for a while in the famous chapel and sit where mystics have sat, in this beloved circle, sunken into the ancient Forest floor.
