The Little Things Really ARE the Big Things

For the last week and a half, Martin and I have been in Colorado for a series of meetings and also for some lovely recreational time. I am so grateful for this, both for the change of scenery and the relaxation, and for the change in perspective that these new places...

For Love of the Earth

I often think of the intense love and respect the indigenous people have carried in their hearts. Those groups who have lived solely off of what they could hunt and gather, had a profound connection to all that lived in the environment that fed them. I remember...

The Long and Winding Road

What a wet and snowy winter we have had! And with all the moisture comes lots and lots of driveway challenges! We have been working on it and good news is that you can now drive in and out!! We have invested $1500 in this project already and it has only just begun!...

The Light Center is a natural sanctuary nestled on 90 wooded acres of sacred space. It is dedicated to living, learning and growing in partnership with Nature as we adapt to a rapidly changing world. For twenty years, it has offered a wide range of small group intensive retreats and workshops, focusing on a variety of ways for spiritual healing and self-development. Our programs are held in a 120-year- old converted barn located just west of Baldwin City, Kansas featuring many interwoven projects. We act as an educational permaculture based farm and learning center as well as providing the home of LoveLight, our international outreach to South Africa. TLC is a nonprofit  Alternative Unity Ministry with 501c3 privileges under the umbrella of Unity Worldwide Ministries.

The Light Center

Vision

To be a clear channel for healing light to reconnect people to their hearts, that we may live in oneness on the sacred earth.

Mission

Holding sacred space for renewal, globally and locally, The Light Center serves individuals and families seeking wholeness in partnership with Nature

Barn Downstairs

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

Our property also includes a hand built sweat lodge, a PacificYurt, private camping grounds, organic, sustainable gardens and animals, abundant wildlife, and an amazing medicine wheel.

This place was absolutely incredible! The yurt was beautiful and The Light Center was an all around great place. I got to hike around the property in the mornings and have my own personal bon fire at night. Everyone who works/lives there was incredibly kind to me and very helpful. I would, and already have, recommended this place to all of my friends. If you’re looking for more than just your average airbnb experience, give this a try. You won’t regret it.

George (AirBnB)

We had a great stay with a feeling of instant friends and community. The grounds are beautiful. Abundance from the garden and other generosity was ample. It is a place in the deep country. That is something we wanted. The college town of Lawrence is 15 miles away and has everything else.

Mark (AirBnB)

The yurt was amazing! It exceeded all of our expectations. Could not have asked for a more relaxing spot.
