Practitioner Certification

Practitioner Certification Track

While many students take the Luminous 2-Year Program for their own personal development, healing, and awakening practice, others may have an interest in applying these teachings more directly in their professional life.

You can train in Luminous skills through Practitioner Pods and the 5th day- Hands on Healing classes as well as study with adjunct teachers in Adult Attachment and Somatic Nervous system repair.  You may choose individual classes that you would like as a complementary modality to enhance your coaching, therapy, healing practice.  You may also apply these skills to leadership, group facilitation, in a business setting, or as a parent.

If you are interested in pursuing certification as a Luminous Practitioner, we offer Level 1 and Level 2 Luminous Practitioner certification. Additional cost and requirements apply.

You can work toward Practitioner Certification whether you are a new or returning advanced student.

If you have received Level 1 Practitioner Certification in past rounds of Luminous, you may want to explore some of our new offerings to deepen and enhance your skills even if you are now working toward Level 2 Certification.

To be certified as a Level 1 Luminous practitioner the requirements are listed below.

NOTE: The fulfillment of these requirements can happen over more than a two year period.

Level 1 Practitioner Certification

Level 1 Certification involves training in skills to give True Mirror sessions: Primarily working with the early developmental and attachment trauma. Techniques use high levels of awareness and practice superpowered counseling skills, energetic alignments, transmission, and the beginning of tracking skills and hands-on energy skills. The course will train in Air, Water and Tree, with some Fire and Earth. Skills are trained with subtle and awake levels.

True Mirror sessions are primarily to address the conditioning from our early development. At Luminous, the practitioner and client shift into their highest level of awareness available, and help the client become aware of a “part” by locating where and how its energy configures, and what its limited view is. In this process, the client learns to unmerge, dis-identify, and embrace with open-heartedness the part that is living in separation from wholeness and from a limited view of reality.

If you wish to be certified as a Level 1 Luminous Practitioner, there are specific requirements beyond those expected of all students. Meeting some of these requirements entails additional time and cost. Each of the requirements will be fully explained at the beginning of the program.

Becoming a skilled practitioner is an ongoing path...it takes the time it takes and is dependent on your commitment to your own healing work and to doing your practice - giving and receiving sessions, exploring the material in greater depth, integrating what you are learning, and continuing to deepen your awakening and awareness. As a practitioner, you will be recognized as proficient once you have demonstrated your capacity. Luminous offers a context and opportunity to grow and practice in these ways, but does not guarantee a specific level of skill and competency as that will depend in large part on your dedication and commitment as well as the yet-to-be-healed personal work you may bring to the process.

For most students, it takes 4+ years to truly become a skilled practitioner. You can take 2-4 years to complete Level 1 Practitioner Certification.

Training Details

Monthly Practitioner Pod

Pods are small group healing and teaching classes offered by Luminous teachers. Running for 3 hours and limited to 12-15 students, they provide intimate attention and engagement with the material and a space in which to get more personalized attention and feedback from Luminous teachers.

Practitioner pods tend to focus on supporting students in actively giving sessions with supervision and feedback and applying the material taught during modules. A mix of skill building and "fishbowl" style observation and feedback help you develop as a practitioner.

  • Online through Zoom.
  • Pods are generally offered in series of 6.
  • Commitment to all 6 pods in a series is expected - this creates a consistent, rich group with whom to practice giving sessions and exploring applications of the teachings. However, occasionally something comes up and you may invite another student to take your spot and pay you directly for that pod.
  • A series can be added a la carte throughout the program with Anna-Lisa or other Luminous teachers.
  • Cost: $125/pod ($750/6 pods; $100/pod if purchased through the Accelerate package).

Hands-On Energy Healing Skills labs

In-depth and applied exploration of the Luminous teachings with Anna-Lisa Adelberg, Raina De Lear, and possible other Luminous teachers. (Held on the 5th Day / Monday, following each module.)

  • Primarily in-person (limited Zoom option available; must have a "client" or partner to work with in-person in your location).
  • Dates: Monday following each module.
  • From 10am-4pm either Pacific or Mountain time, depending on which center we are attending.
  • Can be added a la carte after program starts.
  • Cost: $499 / 5th day

Additional Practitioner Skills Offerings

There are several possible standalone options that may be offered by Luminous teachers as the program progresses. We will provide dates, details, and costs when available. These might include:

  • Energetic Hygiene Class - when we work with people on multiple levels, it becomes essential to know how to keep ourselves resourced, process anything that comes up personally, and clear our energetic systems. This class will explore best practices for energetic hygiene. With LAI Faculty Ethan Henson.
  • Attachment Training and AARM (adult attachment repair) - this course is taught by LAI Guest Teacher Peter Cummings and draws on his unique and potent methodology for attachment repair.
  • Somatics & Nervous System Practitioner Training - learn more about how to work with the Luminous map as it expresses through the body and nervous system, in both distorted and healthy ways. Learn how to recognize what's happening and how each character style can be supported and return to health and well-being. With LAI Faculty Kristen Greco.

Level 2 Practitioner Certification

Level 2 Practitioner Certification includes training in skills to give Simultaneous Sessions.

Simultaneous sessions include high level tracking skills and advanced hands on energetic healing skills at Awake and Simultaneous levels - for Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm and Crystal. Certification is only given when skill levels are demonstrated.

For the Simultaneous liberation process, the practitioner and the client shift into Simultaneous mind. The practitioner rests in the awakened ground and allows dynamism to flow, using their local awareness to help “track” what is arising for liberation in the client. The client also rests in the awakened ground, allowing the dynamic aspect of awareness energy to flow effortlessly. Often these sessions are working with experiences that are not limited to this time or dimension. Sometimes what is being processed is difficult to name, as it is beyond our ordinary consciousness and cannot be understood from the limitations of our thinking mind.

All Luminous teachers are certified in Level 2 and also have developed skills in working with group fields, transmission to groups, stable awakening, deeply worked personal process, high ethics, and so on.

In general, the capacity to give Simultaneous sessions takes a number of years to develop. As you continue to go through the evolving material of the Luminous teachings, deepening your skill, spiritual awakening, and personal growth, you become more able to access this level of awareness and presence. As you step more and more into your capacity as a practitioner, your trust in the natural self-liberating process strengthens. Continuing to work with Luminous teachers and fellow practitioners and students in a rich group field facilitates this development and helps you recognize when you are already there.
