News & Events

Precautions During the Pandemic:

The United Research Light Center has taken steps to protect the health of our community during the Pandemic. Our efforts include: Installation of ultraviolet (UV) germicidal irradiation filters to control airborne infectious disease transmission through our HVAC systems, on both levels of the Light Center. Requiring that masks be worn when moving throughout the building, regardless of vaccination status. (We’re following the mask mandate from the Buncombe County Commissioners.) Because of the UV filters, masks may be removed when guests are in the Light Chamber with their own group members, or when seated upstairs and socially distanced. Audience size is limited to 30 to allow for social distancing.


Prayer is powerful.
When one’s consciousness merges with the Divine, the heart’s resonance communicates with All that Is.


Whether attending an event, offering a retreat, or joining one of our meditation-prayer meetings, we are here to promote the Oneness of All.

Creation Prayer received by Ariel Marsh

On arising each day, the words flow through me – – may I walk through this

day in wisdom, understanding, humility and courage as I pray:

I create Good, constantly and consistently on all levels and all dimensions

and to all kingdoms all of the time.

Whether I am awake or asleep I am creating Divine Light, Life, Love and

Good to everyone and everything in the earth and the cosmos.

I am a living Prayer creating the new Heaven and the new earth

within everyone and All That Is. And everyone I come in contact

with is changed to Divine Light and Good.

I am in constant Prayer for all nations and all leaders to be changed

to Divine Light, Life, Love and Good – and the entire cosmos works in

concert to Create more Light and more Good than there was in the


And I create more Light and more Good in the Creator,

and we thank the Divine for making it so. Amen.
