Five Oaks acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe and Neutral peoples and acknowledge their stewardship of this land throughout the ages.
Five Oaks sits at the confluence of two waterways—a sacred place in Indigenous traditions; for others, a ’thin place’ where the physical and spiritual are closely and deeply experienced. Today, Five Oaks offers transformational experiences at the confluence of renewal and action: ‘come apart’ for restful and reflective retreat; leave with tools and inspiration for life.
Five Oaks is a sacred place where people, as individuals or in intentional community, come apart to look deeply into their own lives and the world in light of faith and values, and find their calling to participate in Spirit’s healing work in creation.
As an Affirming Centre, we offer hospitality to everyone and celebrate human diversity in sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender identity, ability, race, religion and age, regardless of economic situation.
