Making the World a Better Place to Grow

The Light Center is a nonprofit located in Baldwin City, Kansas featuring many interwoven projects focusing on inspiring people to grow.  It serves as an Alternative Unity Ministry providing a sacred space for learning and renewal about growing healthier foods, growing spiritually and growing closer as a human family.  We act as an educational permaculture based farm and rustic retreat and learning center as well as headquarters for LoveLight, our volunteer outreach program in South Africa.

For over 26 years, The Light Center has been trailblazing new paths for living in spiritual harmony

Our sacred sanctuary in the woods is a cozy space that has all the comforts of home and the solitude and beauty of nature. We host family festivals, retreats, activities, communal potlucks and movie screenings, Healing Touch and meditation, or just the stillness of a summer morning. 

Our property also includes a hand built sweat lodge, a couple of Pacific Yurts,  private camping grounds, organic, sustainable gardens with a large hoop house. 

Along the trails you will find abundant wildlife, a medicine wheel, fairy gardens with small carved figures and tiny fairy houses. Then there is the star gazing…need I say more?
