Center for Love & Light: From Physical to Virtual

The Center for Love & Light, an office space for practitioners and a workshop rental facility, has closed its doors due to revenues evaporating from the coronavirus pandemic.

Founded by Jamie Butler and Corey Dobyns, the Center expanded into a second suite a couple of years ago and added more practitioner offices in the first suite. Butler says that the business was viable and debt-free.

“It’s sad,” she says. “We’ve had so many people come through here and love this space. You have these mixed emotions of absolute grief and sadness. As I’m packing, I feel like I’m doing hospice care for my business. I’m holding everything and saying, ‘Hi. Thank you.’”

Despite the trauma, Butler is excited about the future, believing she will create another facility—but that she’ll own the next one. She remains committed to presenting learning opportunities and building community. She plans to launch The Virtual Center, a membership program that features 12 live stream classes a month, on July 1. The price will be $24.99 a month; the first month for new members will be 50% off.

Besides herself, other practitioners offering classes include Dr. Laura Boone, Dr. Kate Edwards, Tatiana Franklin, Janet Raftis, Scott Hall, J. Greathouse, Kenya Jackson-Saulters and Leigh Mallis.
