Our Story

Meet Kandace

I used to live life shackled by fear, doubt, and worry. I put on a happy face while navigating my day-to-day duties, but I was emotionally drained, stressed, and unhappy. When I hit rock bottom and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I was determined to live differently. I knew there had to be another way. Out of that determination and the immense joy that came from finding peace within, "Living in the Light" was born.

It is my greatest joy to support others on the journey to inner peace. My spiritual memoir, From Stress to Peace: An Intimate Journal on the Journey from Living in Darkness to Living in the Light, has inspired many to connect with the peace that lies within.

I share tools for relaxation, meditation, stress release, and more through Living in the Light Retreats, 1:1 energy healing sessions, sound healing, and the Living in the Light Meditations - all of which are designed to support your journey to resting in the stillness within, regardless of what is occurring.

I love to travel and have had the pleasure of spending time in ~42 countries. I bring this passion for authentic travel experiences to my work as a retreat facilitator. I have hosted retreats in Kemet, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Sedona, New Mexico, and the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina (see photos on the Past Retreats page). Upcoming retreats and spiritual pilgrimages will include, but not be limited to: Hawaii, Mount Shasta, Ethiopia, Bali, Chile, Easter Island, Lake Titicaca, Panama, and more.
