Outdoor Weddings & Special Events

The OMS is a beautiful and magical place for Wedding, Hand Fasting and Vow Renewal ceremonies.  Celebrate here with your family and friends to create memories that last a lifetime. There is so much to be done; so much to plan, so many details to attend and guests to invite. One of the more important decisions is “where should we celebrate our vows”? If you love being in Nature and want to create a unique outdoor setting for your ritual, consider the Open-air Meditation Sanctuary as the perfect location for your special event.

There are many possible sites to choose from.  Choose a small and cozy site for a small intimate gathering or a spacious one with plenty of room for a large extended group of family and friends to witness and /or participate in your ceremony. In all cases you will be surrounded by the irresistible beauty of Mother Earth! Any of the sites can be decorated and customized to create the feel you want for your sacred space.

Your wedding photographer will appreciate the myriad of photoshoot opportunities throughout the Sanctuary.  OMS can also provide a wedding photographer on request. Your guests will love the opportunity to roam throughout the OMS walking trails and meditation sites.

Why not bless your celebration on sacred ground that is filled with the blessings of so many? Since the 2010 Grand Opening people have been coming to the OM Sanctuary to pray, meditate and hold sacred ceremonies and rituals.  This has transformed the place into a magical temple.  You will feel it when you visit.  The OMS is an open portal for the love of our Mother Earth and the perfect place to consecrate your love and dedication to your partner.

There are no fees for use of the OMS for your wedding or other special events. OMS is a project of the Center for Soulful Living, which is a donation based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. (Wedding photography would come with a fee from the photographer.)

School Field Trips

Bring your children for a Nature experience. Only ten minutes from historic downtown Eureka Springs, we have easy access and plenty of room for parking.  We can offer a trail guide upon request.  Plan something a little different for your classroom and give your students the opportunity to experience Nature first hand.  The catch and release of tadpoles at the pond is always fun.  What child doesn’t love bird, tree and plant identification while eating wild berries along the way?  Barefoot play in the creek always puts a smile on their faces.
