A vortex is created by spiraling spiritual energy and creates a space to facilitate prayer, meditation and healing. The vortex on site is encircled by a grove of pin oak trees from which the retreat center gets its name. The energy you feel when standing there is palpable to many. This is a popular gathering spot as it has four Adirondack chairs to relax in. In front of each chair is an individual sand box, called a grounding port, where you can bury your feet and ground to the earth.
Labyrinths can be found etched into the floors of many old cathedrals in Europe. Our seven-circuit outdoor labyrinth is lined with white stones and can be used for a walking meditation; centering; quieting the mind; prayer; healing; problem-solving; and connecting with Spirit. It is a great tool to use for letting go of things that no longer serve you.
With gently rolling paths on-site, you can enjoy an early morning or late afternoon stroll around Sacred Grove Retreat Center’s 11 scenic acres. As you walk the trails, you are escorted each step of the way by a deeply felt sense of peace and serenity. Let nature itself guide you along the way and you will always find your way back home.
The Butterfly Garden was planted in a figure 8 (or infinity sign) and includes miniature Magnolias, Gardenias, Butterfly bushes, and more. Located adjacent to the vortex, this is a beautiful spot for quiet reflection at the end of a beautiful day or just to relax.
Bonfires / Fire Pits
The dazzling beauty of the bonfires is truly a highlight at the retreat center. An incredible sense of human connectedness moves amongst bonfire gatherers and continues long after the last ember has spent its energy. Roasting marshmallows and making s’mores is a popular pastime of participants. Drumming and dancing around the fire is another favorite activity of some of our guests.
Outdoor Kitchen and Shower
Designed for the comfort of our guests, the outdoor kitchen features a grill for outdoor cooking. The outdoor shower area comes replete with two outdoor shower stalls, two composting toilets, and two sinks.
