Total FREEdom for ALL through Self-Sufficiency, Tribal Living, Biodynamic Organic Farming, Permaculture, Yoga, Meditation & Holistic Healing

Without ever having been to Costa Rica, JAL and Ngoc and their three children moved Ardent Light to Costa Rica on July 11, 2013 to start a new life to be a part of the solution and not the problem. We were driven by a vision from our collective heart of humanity’s future that is so wonderful, so amazing, and so much like the Garden of Eden from whence we were born. In this future (which already exists in the fabric of Time and Space), we see a world full of happy, healthy, vibrant people living in harmony with all of Nature and the Cosmos. We pool our energies together to co-create wonderful art and Beauty, expressing our Love for each other and Creation in so many different ways: celebrations, sacred ceremonies, developing products and services that entertain and delight us in infinite and creative number of ways. Everything is FREE. Money and governments are no longer needed as we share and love everyone equally, and experience our Oneness in every moment. Joy, Bliss, Ecstasy, and Creative expression is all that we know, feel, and do. Our mission (which we feel is the mission of all humanity) is to do our part to usher in this amazing future our descendants will inherit.
