Our Spiritual Perspective

Our spiritual path at the Sanctuary is very simple. It is the path of the heart, in whatever form that may take at any given moment.

When we step beyond the mind and belief and into the heart we experience the true nature of Divine Presence as Love.

We honor the human need to believe and to reach out (or inward) to Divine Presence through various forms & practices. But we know that when the Essence is reached, regardless of the method or path, it will be known as Love.

The purpose of Mountain Light Sanctuary is to provide you with a place to rediscover and reconnect with your essential nature, with your original innocence, with Divine Presence, and with Love.
Personal Retreats

The Sanctuary is available for personal retreats with guests normally being lodged at our one room Hermitage. It is the perfect place to get away from it all. There is a spacious porch overlooking our cascading mountain stream that offers you a quiet place to read, write, paint or meditate. Or it can be your base camp for exploring endless miles of national forest trails into the mountains. We require a minimum stay of two nights.

Group Retreats

The Sanctuary is available for small group retreats and it is especially ideal for groups focusing on Earth oriented themes or simply those who like to be close to nature while learning. We can manage a group of up to 12 for a long weekend with accommodations ranging from indoor guest rooms to outdoor shelters. The rate is $100 per person for up to three nights without food. Normally groups bring their own food and prepare in the lodge kitchen. Also, groups are asked to bring their own sleeping gear.
