What is light? Light is defined as the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible or understanding of a problem or mystery (i.e. enlightenment). At The Smart Place, it is always our goal to give light to the world on our community that we service, in a sense of making it visible. In the sense of understanding problems and mysteries, this is where the student (participant) becomes the teacher! We learn best how to give support to our participants from our participants, but we have to be willing to be taught.
