Calendar & Upcoming Events

Classes & Events


As we approach our 25-year anniversary and prepare to move out of our Center in Santa Cruz, what is next for Inner Light? Through the “brain stilling” Visioning Process, we tune into the Right Action ready to unfold for Inner Light. Visioning is a compass pointing where to go and a blueprint revealing what to become. Open to all, regardless of location or length of involvement with Inner Light. Bring blank paper and markers/crayons. Attend as many as you can. Together let’s discern Inner Light’s future. 

The Visioning will focus on:

  • How do we creatively build community?
  • What services and programming do we provide?
  • What leadership models do we adopt?
  • Where do we relocate and how much space is needed?
  • What is our pathway to sustainability?
