The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth,
dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
ATTENTION: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be gathering in LeClaire for meditation; however, we will be continuing via zoom. Click here for more information: calendar
For over 10 years, this land, the ancestral home of the Kiikaapoi, Peoria, Sauk & Meskwaki, Myaamia, and Sioux, has offered a peaceful place for people to quietly sit, walk and be in community with nature. The Prairie Oaks Sangha began as a small group of three people, gathering weekly for mindfulness meditation in this beautiful setting. Over the years, we have grown organically, and we welcome all to join us.
Through our practice that is rooted in the compassionate teachings of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh and traditions of Plum Village, we are committed to nurturing peace and wellbeing in ourselves, our community, and the diverse natural ecology of our Mother Earth, for they are not separate entities. Prairie Oaks Sangha's meditation gatherings are every Friday at Prairie Oaks, the 34-acre reserve in LeClaire, Iowa. All are welcome!
