We serve the underserved, displaced and
vulnerable through education and support services
fueled by donors, volunteers & partners


As a vehicle for the humanitarian work of Her Holiness Sai Maa,  
        Light Legacy Foundation is deeply committed to the expansion of the Divine Feminine and the awakening of the oneness of humanity.

We serve the underserved, displaced and vulnerable.

Our work provides people with what they need to rise up and
live powerfully when facing difficult life challenges.

As our primary focus, we are committed to the upliftment and well-being of women through education and support services,
fueled by donors, volunteers & partners.

The upliftment of women

We partner with other nonprofits, complementing their services for women in need. The premise of our work: women recognizing their self-worth is key to moving forward, and tapping into their innate power enables them to generate the fortitude and resiliency to build successful lives.

Our customized offerings include:
    - Mindfulness & meditation
    - Tools to transform old patterns
    - Self-care & stress relief practices
    - On-site retreats
    - Ongoing support webinars
    - One-on-one coaching

“The nobility of women, the power of women, the devotion of women, the strength of women, the love of women.  Women carry knowledge, grace, wealth, beauty, wisdom and joy and more.  Allow these attributes, these qualities from within you, from the supreme consciousness residing inside of you, to surface.” - Sai Maa


The Foundation provides financial and material resources and volunteer services directly to people affected by natural disasters and emergencies, and to nonprofit organizations serving them.

Japan Relief
Parts of western Japan have received three times the usual rainfall for July. Two million people were ordered to evacuate as rivers flooded over their banks and many casualties have been reported. The Foundation has received over $7000 in donations for disaster recovery in Japan.

Everglades City
In support of those affected by Hurricane Irma in Everglades City, Florida, our community raised $20,000 which was donated through Light Legacy to the Community Foundation of Collier County; an additional $12,150 was raised through matching. Over several weeks, Sai Maa offered seva in the community, and was joined for a few days by three Brahmacharis, Dayananda, Jivananda and Jayendra.

“The more you will allow love to emanate and radiate from you, from within you, instead of allowing fear, you will attract more love and you will feel love coming to you, you will expand and live in that love and you will see the love manifesting in this world."

- Sai Maa

“Play your part in the grand design. The divine feminine within you, expressed as you, balanced with your divine masculine. In harmony the divine feminine and divine masculine dance together as one.”
- Sai Maa

Helping women help themselves, every woman deserves a bright, happy and safe future where she and her children can thrive. Fresh Start Women's Foundation provides women with education, resources and support to positively transform their lives.  It's helping women to create stronger communities and families.


In our ongoing partnership with Fresh Start, Light Legacy Foundation offers various programs.

Heart Centered Living: Participants have a new understanding of the overall power of the heart, experience the positive impact of being in the heart, and walk away with specific tools to live a heart-centered life.

The Fundamental Shift: From Striving to Fulfillment: This workshop explores how you can achieve a sense of inner fulfillment, rather than feeling a constant need to chase after something outside of you.

Practices for Healthy Living: Bi-monthly webinars for women and staff, including practices related to breathing, mindfulness, meditation, and stress relief.

Women’s Retreat: Taking time away from their daily routine, participants go deep within themselves, replenish, and bring new ideas, energy, and expression into their lives.

Stress Relief Program: The Foundation has assisted with the design and delivery of this ongoing program, offering tools for managing the impact of stress in daily life.


“The breathing session really brought me back into my heart and I felt a deep relaxation. I liked the whole session and think all of this is beneficial.”

“Most applicable for me are guided meditation, divine feminine, and
acts of kindness.”

“I will use the tools given to help make improvement to my life and for my family. Thank you.”

“I finally realize what I have been offering all these years that I couldn’t put into words, that I can appreciate about myself and continue … compassion.”

We’re asking you to join us in creating a legacy of light!

For just $5 a week two women can attend our offerings for free (including 3 workshops and a webinar series).

These transformative experiences not only help women out of crisis, but allow them to flourish and unleash their innate potential. Your donations will help women to:

     - break free from patterns of abuse  

     - move from survival to creation

     - expand what is possible

     - unleash their divine feminine
