Our Mission

Light on the Hill’s mission is to provide a supportive, healing, and inspiring environment where individuals and groups of all backgrounds can find safe space for reflection, deep inner work, and spiritual growth.

The Land

When Alice McDowell and Larry Muscat established Light on the Hill three decades ago, they were not the first to recognize the power of this land. We acknowledge that Light on the Hill is built on the ancestral homelands of the Susquehannock and Haudenosaunee people, and within the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Odǫhwęja:deˀ (Cayuga) Nation in particular. This land has been honored and cherished for generations.

As an organization, we are working to understand this land’s history and to acknowledge the many people who hold it and have held it dear. We invite all who come here to join us in this reflective and active work.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Light on the Hill recognizes that we embody our mission most fully when we notice and embrace the vibrant diversity of spiritual paths, social identities, and life experiences within the human family. We seek to channel the healing, renewing, connecting power and potential of our space and services for the wellbeing of all. We are committed to creating a welcoming and comfortable environment for all our guests, and we strive to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within our programs and services.
