About Us at VegSpirit!

We came to the vegetarian diet through the doorway of spirituality, meditation and yoga, long before the health and environmental benefits were well researched and known. We were blessed with wise teachers who knew that attaining the peace and love that we longed for deep in our hearts would be furthered by our food choices. In the many years since then, we have never regretted that decision to follow the lead of those enlightened ones whose lives are blueprints for the architecture of the highest human life.

Vegetarian Spirituality comes from the vision to create a network throughout the world to:

  • Introduce people to vegetarian, compassionate and spiritually oriented lifestyles.
  • Create communities that supports and inspires those who have chosen this way of life.

We are overjoyed that more and more people of all ages are awakening to this knowledge and embracing the compassionate diet.


VegSpirit is associated with Lighthouse Center Oregon, a non-profit service organization, located on 300 acres overlooking the beautiful Umpqua River Valley in the foothills of the Cascades in Central Oregon. A peaceful meditation center and certified organic farm, it will soon celebrate its twenty year anniversary.

People come from all over the world to Lighthouse Center Oregon (LCO) for the purpose of deepening their practice of Meditation on the Inner Light and Sound, known in India as Sant Mat or Surat Shabd Yoga.

Of course, in addition to meditation and healthy outdoor time in the gardens and orchards, people enjoy wonderful organic vegetarian meals including a salad bar that surpasses most 5 star hotels. All the greens and vegetables used in our delicious colorful salads are picked fresh daily. The thousand plus organic fruit trees at the Lighthouse Center Orgeon supply luscious fruit.
