Spiritual vortexes are said to be cross-points between energy fields in the earth’s grid system, or intersecting ley lines. Where the ley lines intersect, in certain areas, the result is said to be a “hot spot” of energy that can produce a wide range of effects along the lines of spiritual healing, and psychic enhancement. This space facilitates prayer, meditation, and healing. The vortex on site is encircled by a grove of pin oak trees from which the retreat center gets its name. The energy you feel when standing there is palpable to many. In addition at the vortex are individual sand boxes that we call grounding ports for guests to put their feet in and ground to Mother Earth.
