The theme of this retreat is awakening joy. We will examine how our minds work and calm our nervous systems. We will follow a balanced schedule of meditation, inner reflection, gentle yoga movement and deep rest. We will journal our responses to inquiry sessions, express ourselves through art, have thoughtful discussions and make friends with inner stillness. To ensure deep peaceful rest there is plenty of free time for walking, contemplation and resting. Throughout the retreat, outside of guided group discussions and visiting time after lunch, we maintain silence to facilitate deep transformation.

Preparing for Retreat and Details

We have combined the most transformative spiritual practices to create a powerful spiritual and psychological container for connecting into the inner wellspring of true happiness and peace.

The retreats are non-denominational in presentation and open to all that are interested. Our past retreats have been attended by people from many faiths i.e. Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, Atheist, etc.


St. Crispin's Retreat Center is located on 400 acres in the rolling, oak-covered hills of Seminole County within easy driving distance of Oklahoma City and Tulsa. There are quiet hiking trails and two lakes that convey a felt sense of peacefulness, stillness and serenity.

The retreat center lodge overlooks a tranquil lake surrounded by native oak-covered hills. The facility is a modern conference center with hotel style rooms. Each room has two twin beds and a private bathroom. Other than service animals, pets are not allowed.


We offer a limited number of partial work scholarships to retreats for those who need financial assistance.
