Join our 2-year healing and awakening school

Enrolling now for in-person & online students





The mission of the Luminous Awareness Institute is cultivating an illuminated heart-centered community dedicated to healing and uplifting the world.


Luminous is a fusion of HEALING and AWAKENING and RELATING


Luminous is a 2-year modern mystery school that blends wisdom teachings rooted in 5,000 years of spiritual science with contemporary methods – wisdom that is relatable to our modern culture and world. We teach the essence of spiritual traditions combined with our modern understanding of neuroscience, attachment, developmental trauma, and somatics.

All of these modern approaches are combined with time-tested spiritual practices that have systematic methods to train higher levels of consciousness. They dismantle negative habits and emotions, elevate the many levels of our wellbeing, and increase our capacity to thrive and be of greater service in the world.

Luminous is a HOLISTIC REMEDY for the human experience

Over the course of two years together, we will teach you a path and give you tools for true liberation. During this time, you will learn...

  • AWARENESS PRACTICES: To shift beyond ordinary awareness to the extraordinary awareness levels of the sages.
  • NON-DUAL MEDITATION: To master the invisible forces that shape your consciousness and experience of life.
  • ATTACHMENT WORK: The ability to connect to people on a whole other level, see situations in an expanded light, and develop the resources to be liberated from limited ways of being in the world.
  • CHILDHOOD SURVIVAL PATTERNS: The roots of your deeply anchored unconscious patterns and how to heal them.
  • SOUL AWAKENING: How to connect more clearly to who you really are, beyond your stories, beliefs and conditioning.
  • LOVING COMMUNITY SANGHA: The art of playing in the magical and the sacred, find true clarity and purpose, and experience a new level of freedom.

As you move into higher levels of consciousness, you will discover…

  • Your personal energetic constitution and how to use it to optimize your life.
  • The intrinsic divine qualities and "superpowers" you were born with but haven't recognized yet.
  • The ability to shift your identity into awakened levels so your personal compass will magnetize the good.
  • How to help people feel more open with you and be compelled by your presence.
  • A feeling of causeless joy as you live more from your true Self—with synchronous flow and unbounded love.
  • An intimate connectedness with all of life, and the ability to rest in a knowing confidence.
  • Awakened relational practices in dyads, to realize our ultimate interconnectedness and cultivate our capacity for awakening in relationship with others.
  • How to awaken while integrating methods for healing attachment traumas, purifying our afflictive tendencies, and simultaneously cultivating their antidotes.

What Our students are saying

Mikey S. - LAI 2-Year Program Participant

Mikey S.

"The Luminous program has been one of the most, if not the most, life-changing systems of support I've received in my life. It's changed the way that I feel, the way that I interact with other people, the way that I navigate my life. It's helped me to be a better human being."


Deb V.

"Luminous is special to me because it's helped me recognize what is inside of me: the beauty, the perfection, the infinite possibility that exists now in me and in each of us. I operate and navigate in the world differently now."


Kingsley S.

"Luminous changed my life and has enabled me to access levels of consciousness that I only ever dreamed of. The teachers are world-class. It has probably been the greatest investment of my life."

What our students are saying


"Luminous has been absolutely life-changing. I feel this incredible difference in my system from a year and a half ago when I started the program up until now. I have experienced levels of groundedness and depth that I never knew were available. I met parts of myself that I was simply at war with for years and was able to heal them on earth, in this beautiful environment that actually created sustainable long-term change versus the band-aid on bullet-wound approach of many other things that I've done in the last 15 years of being in personal development and spiritual development."

Samantha S.


"The profundity for me is the emptiness, the spaciousness, and the presence of more “masculine” paths being met and married with the more “feminine” fullness of being. This is not just a path of spaciousness and the emptiness of awareness, but it's also all of the riches that are arising through the body, through the emotions, through the mind, through nature. Luminous marries these together in a deep, intelligent, purposeful way."

How does it work?

Our comprehensive program is a clear roadmap for awakening in your everyday life, healing negative patterns, and discovering and developing your unique energetic gifts.

You will join a community of like-hearted beings who will support your path of awakening and healing and become a new family of deep connections and lifetime friends.

You will participate in one introductory module online and seven live modules, each made-up of 4-day intensives (in-person or virtually) plus experiential practices, healing sessions, and additional classes to deepen your practice. Each module builds on the next, creating the foundation for weaving these skills into your personal and professional life.


Foundations Online Module

Develop a solid foundation for your Luminous journey with this comprehensive introductory online module. You’ll learn about the levels of mind, energetic anatomy and your energetic field, how to cultivate meta awareness, introductory developmental and attachment repair practices, and the importance of the spiritual Path.

7 Immersive Live Modules

Attend seven live intensive 4-day modules where we’ll explore each of the 7 wisdom qualities in detail: Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm and Crystal. These are immersive trainings are offered both virtually and in-person at a beautiful retreat center in Loveland, Colorado.

Community Meditations

Practice shifting your level of mind from ordinary consciousness all the way to awakened simultaneous awareness. By strengthening your awareness with clear pointings, the amplified field of the sangha, and regular practice, you will deepen your access to your awakened nature.

Home Group Meetings

Come into deep co-regulation with an intimate group where you can feel safe and beautifully reflected by your peers. Each group member will receive “mini” healing sessions, where you’ll effortlessly drop into your present time experience, as vulnerable, raw, and sublime as it might be, and be held in a shared group presence.

Classes Between Modules

Advanced Luminous teachers will take you deeper into the Luminous material, helping you explore on a personal basis how these teachings apply in your life. These labs are a powerful opportunity to practice the skills learned with fellow students and to explore the material of each module in greater depth.

Online Support Materials

Continue to marinate in the awakened wisdom qualities of Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm, and Crystal. A number of meditations and practices will be recorded during each module and shared with you in an online course portal to support and deepen your practice.

What our students are saying


Ana Paula M.

"Luminous has been instrumental in my life, in terms of my personal development, but beyond personal development it has awakened and supported the recognition of my spiritual unfoldment and growth. A lot of pieces of me that were in fractals now get to be united in a cohesive whole."


Jeff S.

"I was drawn to Luminous, as a community of people that are walking the path of awakening all at various different stages, but it is a group field committed to the fundamental principle that we are all God, we're all divine beings, and to be held in community in that way is just so powerful and special. Being supported in my awakening path and the realization that God is within, changed everything."


Devani F.

"I connected to my soul purpose through this program and I've stepped into levels of power, confidence and magic in my life that I didn't even know was possible. It's been an absolutely profound experience and I highly recommend it to anyone that's looking for growth, understanding, and what they want to achieve in their life, and want to get there on a faster path. This is the program."

"Bravery evokes Magic. Here bravery is the courage to be - to live in the world without any deception and with tremendous kindness and caring for others." ~ Trungpa

The Luminous Curriculum

Throughout this program  we will learn to recognize and marinate in the 7 aspects of Awakened Wisdom.

These aspects are like facets of a diamond, each an aspect of the wholeness and an expression of our True Nature. We explore these facets through the 7 elements, Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm and Crystal, which are expressions of the deepest dimension of our being.

In each module we explore the Awakened wisdom qualities of one element and its energetic gifts, as well as its Shadow. In this way we realize all dimensions of our awakened consciousness and also work with the shadow that obstructs our Luminous awareness from shining in the world.

Luminous - 7 Facets

8 Immersive Live Modules

Each of the Luminous modules serve as immersive initiations, where we’ll journey together through the seven aspects of Awakened Wisdom. Each module is an exploration of one of these aspects—Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm, and Crystal—which reflect the multifaceted expression of our True Nature.

Students will delve into awakening practices, explore the shadow and awakened aspect of each quality, how they relate to human development, discover the remedies that heal each shadow, and learn how to apply these skills in personal and relational practices.

This comprehensive approach allows us to map these transformative qualities throughout the entire hologram of our lives, leading to a fully illuminated awareness that shines unobstructed in the world.

Ways to Go Deeper

Deep Dive Track

The Deep Dive Track is for you if you are seeking a more intimate container for your healing process, and offers a chance to connect more closely with the Luminous founder and teacher Anna-Lisa Adelberg.

Including everything offered in the Basic Track, plus smaller group support for healing and practice as well as a personal healing session with the founder of Luminous, the Deep Dive Track offers a more intimate level of support. You’ll also get to know your fellow Luminous students at a more personal level, with plenty of opportunity to practice and go deep with the Luminous teachings.

Practitioner Track

The Practitioner Track offers a comprehensive pathway for those inspired to bring Luminous healing skills into the world. Aimed at healers, therapists, coaches, and anyone in the healing professions, this track equips you with a deep understanding and practical application of Luminous methodologies.

Beyond the foundational teachings, you'll engage in specialized training classes and practice sessions, designed to refine your skills and understanding. Whether you're expanding your existing practice or stepping into a new role as a healing practitioner, this track provides the tools, knowledge, and community support to excel and make a profound impact in the lives of others.

Returning students

Have you been through the 2-Year Program and want to take it again, or take it to the next level?

While following a core curriculum, each 2-Year Program is a unique and emergent transmission and exploration that arises from the living material and the energy of the new cohort. Returning students generally reflect that the second (or more) round deepens, expands, refines, grounds, and solidifies their healing, growth, and Awakening awareness.

The realizations and the opening of perceptions of Awakened Air, Water, Tree, Fire, Earth, Realm and Crystal deepen and expand every round and reveal more dimensions of what they really are. We welcome returning students to join us again, and to explore our advanced offerings that complement the stage of their journey.

For returning students who are interested in continuing their studies and practice as a Luminous practitioner, without repeating the full 2-Year Program, we are offering an online standalone training option. See the Practitioner Track page for more detail. 

Choose Your Program

Our 2-Year Program is a profound investment in your growth and transformation. We offer three different tracks that provide different levels of depth and personalized support for you to choose from depending on your needs and what your life can support at this time.

Each track includes Immersive group work, meditation and awakening practices, healing assessments, and online materials as the foundation. Additional opportunities to deepen the work include small group pods, a meditation weekend, sessions with advanced healers, and more.

Sign up before the deadline to receive $1000 off as shown below.

Additional discounts are available for returning students ($1500 off) and online participants ($2100 off). See the details page for more information on available discounts and financing options.

What our students are saying


Jason H.

"This is the only program I have experienced that has addressed the roots of why we suffer and not only address the roots, but show you the way to actually heal those things. I can't think of a better gift to life itself, than to actually embody a way of being well in the world and to relieve ourselves of suffering. This experience, this community, and these teachers bring so much understanding and so much embodied mastery of these practices that I feel I've hit upon something that is allowing me to truly live my life from a real sense of who I actually am."


Viraja P.

"If you're thinking about doing Luminous, I would say only, “do it”. If you're ready for your life to change, your relationships to get better, your relationships with yourself, others, the universe, the divine (or whatever you may call that) to change through your own personal choices and efforts, but also through the vehicle of the community and the program that you're in, it's absolutely going to happen."


Sindhu H.

"Luminous contains ancient, often hidden teachings from Eastern lineages. Many of the esoteric teachings and the deep deeper essence of the teachings have been lost in the way Eastern philosophy is shared today. At Luminous I feel in direct contact with the deepest essence of these ancient teachings and through the practices I am directly connecting with living wisdom intelligence and the all-pervasive energetic field."

By the end of the program, you will...

  • Elevate your everyday state of consciousness from the ordinary mind rooted in suffering to the expanded awakened states of peace and bliss that is your true nature.
  • Have the skills you need to do the profound work of healing developmental and later life traumas—turning these experiences into wisdom, liberating yourself from past patterns and stepping into a life of freedom and authenticity.
  • Discover and align with your unique energetic signature, cultivating the superpowers and gifts inherent to your soul’s path.
  • Master the art of cultivating healthy relationships by healing attachment wounds— transforming your familial, romantic, and professional relationships. And most importantly, the relationship with yourself and your soul.
  • Understand the gifts and distortions of each energy center (chakra), and how to heal, activate, and enhance these powers for personal awakening and healing.
  • Develop the superpowered ability of x-ray vision—the ability to look at someone’s body and energy signature and know the themes of their upbringing and current life circumstances.
  • Embody heart-centered power, merging Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (energy) to transcend limited dynamics of power and embody true, service-oriented divine power.
  • Develop lifelong relationships with a sangha of awakened beings. This heart-centered community will offer unwavering support on your healing journey, providing a foundation of love and mutual growth.
  • Learn to walk your path in complete alignment with the loving truth of your heart, ensuring that your decisions and actions reflect the highest expression of your being.
