New Living Expo - Guests

Sukyo Mahikari Centers for Spiritual Development is an international community service organization. What really makes us special is the practice of the Art of True Light. The Light is a positive spiritual energy radiated from the palm of the hand, which anyone can learn to give, even a ten-year-old child. 

What is so great is that the Light influences our spiritual condition which affects our potential and happiness in life.  The spiritual condition is invisible but affects all aspects of our life, such as relationships, peace of mind, success, and health.  In addition to the Light practice, we strive to practice universal principles, which are independent of belief systems. These principles include things like having gratitude, treating others as you want to be treated, being good stewards of the environment and supporting our community.  

In our spiritual development centers we cannot necessarily make the waves of life go away, but with this practice, we can become excellent “surfers”.  We invite you to visit and learn how to surf the waves of life during these difficult times.  You can receive Light in many places throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Art of True Light comes from a high dimension that is a positive spiritual energy which some may call universal life force;  it is a special spiritual practice where the Light is transmitted through the palm of the hand, purifying the spirit, mind and body. The Light stimulates the conscious and unconscious mind in such a way that one becomes happier, leading to the development of an enhanced sense of self-awareness and well-being.  

Our Centers for Spiritual Development are unique because they focus on reaching one’s potential.  All faiths and practices are welcome.
