Hello! I'm so glad you've found us. My name is Dr. Trina Bayard, and my vision for Let it Shine is that it serves as a retreat center that uplifts and empowers people from all backgrounds to live with a sense of vitality, purpose, and connection.

I've long turned to nature as a source of renewal and inspiration, and I've worked to study and protect the environment throughout my career. However, it was only recently that I began to connect the dots between my spiritual and personal development and my professional work on behalf of nature and people. The call to integrate these elements crystallized through an experience I had on retreat in 2018, and I emerged with a vision to help deepen people’s relationship with nature, self, and each other.

Although the ultimate goal is to build a retreat center, we're currently focused on creating online content that can be easily accessed. Stay tuned on our updates page!
