Stil-Light Theosophical Retreat Center is in the foothills of the
Blue Ridge Mountains less than a mile from an entrance to the
Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a scenic drive along the ridges of
some of the oldest and highest mountains east of the Mississippi.
There are lots of arts & crafts stores in several small towns
within 30 minutes of the retreat center.
The physical facility consists of a house which was built and
then donated to the Theosophical Society in America by Florice
Tanner, a retired teacher. It has a efficiency apartment on one
end available for speakers and private retreaters. There are two
dormotories, two showers, and a laundry room in the basement.
There is a large living/dinning room for meetings with a large
natural stone fireplace. A library/meditation room and kitchen
are also on the first floor.
Perhaps one of Stil-Lights most attractive features is the full
deck which overlooks the valley below. There is a small mountain
stream running down the edge of the property with a small stone
bench beside it. It is surrounded by woods, part of which is a
nature conservation research area for a local community college.

options from an Econo-Lodge to nice bed & breakfast inns and
