After a very difficult year, I knew that the time had come to get away from it all and reflect on the state of my life. I came upon Mountain Light Sanctuary early in my research and knew that this is exactly what my soul so desperately needed. The second I stepped out of my car, I felt as if I had entered a dream. My experience at Mountain Light was truly transformative. I decided to stay in the Garden Suite-a lovely canopy bed on a porch overlooking the Japanese Gardens. Every night I was lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of the creek and wind chimes and awoke to the sound of roosters. The property is truly magical, and you couldn't go wrong with whatever shelter or room you choose to stay in! Michael was such a gracious host, and the people I met along the way were so lovely. There is a hush and respect about the place because everyone is there for similar intentions. I spent most of my time sitting amongst the creek, swinging in the hammock, and hiking the trails that are literally steps away from the Sanctuary. I have already decided that I will be coming back at least twice a year. If you are looking for a place to unwind, reflect, or commune with nature, there is no better place than Mountain Light!
