The Renewal Center

 Shimmering Light is pleased to announce the opening of our beautiful Renewal Center at Shimmering Light Farm, educational home for many of our workshops, retreats, special events and seasonal celebrations!!

Each season we will add a wide variety of topics that embrace many aspects of conscious and regenerative living, taught by professional, passionate and fun educators.  Our facilitators and the beauty of the farm will inform and inspire you to deepen your relationship with the natural world and with one another.
