Do you have a place for me to stay?

Workshop attendees can stay at one of our historic, eco-friendly Inns within walking distance of Living Light. Our Enrollment Advisor will help make your reservation after you sign up. 

Do you provide transportation?

The trip to Fort Bragg will take about 4 hours from SFO and OAK airports. There's a shuttle service from these airports to the Sonoma County airport. We offer transportation from Sonoma County which our enrollment advisor will help you schedule.

What other activities are there in Fort Bragg?

There are many restaurants, coffeehouses and cafes, galleries, and local music and events just by walking out the front door of Living Light. We’re also home to tremendous natural beauty so you’ll have easy access to the Pacific Ocean, Noyo Harbor, Redwood Trees, State Parks, and more. 

Can I attend just one of the days of the retreat? 

Yes, while the retreat is designed as a complete four-day experience we understand you may only be able to attend one day, so we’ve made that an option. Complete your registration and our enrollment advisor will help you select the day that’s best for you.
