Prairie Oaks Institute



Its important in times like these to stay informed, grounded, and whole. Thats what Prairie Oaks Institute is all about. Were a place of quiet rest--and stimulating ideas. A place to reconnect with the earth, with others, with the sacred and with ourselves. Our programs and resources are about connections among the three "circles of focus."
