Advanced Opportunities
in the LAI 2-year program

You've been through the 2-year program and you want more?

Deepen into the practices and community of Luminous.  The Advanced Programs are no longer accepting applications. Please join our wait list.

Everything you got a taste of in the first program is a tiny sip of a huge well. Come back to drink more deeply from the well. When we get a sip or a glimpse of something, it begins to be known. When we drink from that source over time, repeatedly, our whole being is quenched and becomes the embodiment of it.

  • To embody awakefulness and live from the limitless intelligence that we are is a deep and dedicated journey.  Come back for the incredible support of the Luminous transmission fields, teachers and community!
  • The more time, practice, marinating in transmission fields, and pointing out, the more adept our subtle energy tracking becomes. Continue to train your subtle energy skills!
  • The Luminous fields and community are uniquely potent, safe, and loving place to continue to heal and unbind ourselves from our limiting beliefs that filter us from our unlimited potential. Be part of the next evolutionary and healing cohort.
  • Get the new downloads, the ever evolving material as it comes through the living field! Also new this round is Loch Kelly, author of Shifting into Freedom. He is the new meditation teacher and will lead workshops and calls and be giving a very clear pointing out to awake awareness and how to make this awakefulness a stable baseline in your life.
  • Limited spots available.

Important Update

Due to high interest for a limited number of spots, a short application is required, even if you have already submitted your deposit. If for any reason you are not accepted at this time, your deposit will be returned in full.

Once you pay your deposit, you will be able to access the application through your profile or when you are logged in to your account.

Deposit and application must be complete by September 15, 2017 to be considered.

Advanced Students

Love the community connection, the interactive practices, the fresh download of new insights, the personal growth? Want to do it again? You can!

Join the new cohort as a full participant while also bringing your understanding, skill, and excitement as advanced students to share with the community.

Continue to heal your personal process, deepen your spiritual awakening, and anchor your understanding of the Luminous approach and materials.

Play in the fields as you integrate and refine your path to personal evolution and excellence!

Circle

Avatar Path

Want to participate again in the full 2-year program and ready to go deeper? Want more in-depth exploration of the benders, techniques, and awareness training as well as personal feedback on where you are with your own healing and growth?

One of the best things about this track is regular access to the smaller more advance groups that gets a lot more personal interaction and feedback from the Luminous teachers. Monday class after module has both Anna-Lisa and Raina, with a much smaller student to teacher ratio. Its an intimate time to deepen into the materials at a whole new level of exploration.  The training classes between modules will have a lot more personal pointing out and deepening of Luminous skills.

As an Avatar, you will continue the deep cultivation of the different forms of awareness. You will also go deeper and farther with the benders, exploring the gifts and realizations offered by each bender and how to manifest them in the world.

Learn what’s next in your personal healing journey that needs to be addressed and receive pointing out instructions to deepen your spiritual practice in order to go further and stabilize the subtle and extraordinary.

Assess and strengthen your capacity to hold space and facilitate for others in their healing and awakening and in your relationships in life, whether personal or professional. While this is not a practitioner training track, it will emphasize how to integrate and apply Luminous teachings to all aspects of your life.

Practitioner Path*

Want to strengthen your practitioner skills and move toward possible roles within Luminous such as official practitioner, pod leader, circle leader, and so on? Join the Practitioner Path for additional mentoring and support in rounding out your capacity to bring your gifts in service to others.

A higher bar is set for this role than for Advanced or Avatar Students. While healing your personal process is expected to continue as you move through the teachings a second time, the focus shifts from self to other as you are given opportunities to put your skills into active practice with new and advanced students and your peers in the Practitioner Path and with clients in your larger community.

Participate in the program again, join the Avatar trainings, and attend the dynamo breakouts and Monday deep dive intensives, while pushing the edges of your skill and capacity.

Please be aware that achieving advanced practitioner skills takes the time it takes and varies from person to person - it could take from 2 years to many. The amount of time and energy devoted to your practice and to your personal healing makes a substantial impact on the development of the skills needed. An official role with Luminous is not guaranteed following this program.

See additional requirements in the Practitioner Path Notes.

Are you a Luminous grad with 4 years of growth and practice and want to explore what's next?

For those of you who have already done 4 (or more!) years with Luminous and still want more, we have two options for ongoing involvement. We would love to have you bring your gifts and skills to the Luminous community!

Advanced Dynamos

Refine and deepen your practitioner and facilitation skills, stay connected to Luminous community, and engage with the evolving material of Luminous!  Anyone who has completed 4 years with Luminous (the initial 2-year program and 2 years of dynamo training) can apply to attend modules in a support role.

This may also lead to opportunities to apply for roles within Luminous such as pod leader, official practitioner, circle leader, and so on, as your skill set and engagement with LAI continues to evolve.

Opportunities of the Avatar Path apply, including:

  • 5th Day advanced breakout and during module breakouts
  • priority scheduling for sessions and mentoring (if attending at least 3 modules or assisting at the Subtle Self program)

  • can attend advanced retreats

PLUS:

  • attend the meditation retreats at cost, if space is available

Being an advanced dynamo is available on a space available basis. Commitment to being in an active support role at Luminous modules and with Luminous students is required.
