Intro to Luminous:

Realize the imperturbable and radiant heart of Silence.
How our awakening helps us navigate challenging times. 

with Anna-Lisa Adelberg

(May be offered virtually or in-person.)

This is a three-hour introduction to the Luminous Awareness Institute’s 2 year program
which integrates nondual awakening with healing into a comprehensive path.

We integrate psychological and subtle energetic healing into a nondual path so that awakening becomes not a means to transcend life,
but to embody its wisdom and deep compassion in life.


In the Luminous circle you will learn to:

  • Shift your awareness beyond an everyday ordinary awareness. You will practice shifting into Subtle Awareness and Awake Awareness and beyond, to the extraordinary awareness levels of the sages.
  • Recognize  the 7 Awakened Wisdom Qualities and how to master the invisible forces that shape your consciousness and experience of life.
  • Understand your unique Energetic Constitution that reveal your optimal doorways for awakening and your unique energetic gifts or "superpowers"
  •  Connect to other people on a whole other level, experience each others energetic qualities and co-marinate in awakened "We" space.
  • Understand how our early developmental and attachment traumas shape our sense of self and deeply inform our lived experience. Learn ways to repair these early  imprints, develop healthy resilience, a greater capacity for connection and open heartedness as well as profound inner strength.

At these circles we we will play in the magical and the sacred, harness the power of our collective awareness, and create an amplified energetic field where healing and expanded states of consciousness become viscerally real. Not only will you witness Luminous healing in an amplified container but you may be the one to receive the healing! In just a few hours together, we can create a container that is profoundly heart warming, magical, and energetically rich.

You will also have a chance to ask questions, speak to Luminous faculty, Luminous students, and meet other people who are interested in enrolling in the Luminous trainings and activating their energetic skills and spiritual awareness in their lives.

What people are saying about the Luminous Program:

Mikey S. - LAI 2-Year Program Participant

 A profound synthesis of awakening, healing.

“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, it's changed the way that I interact with other people, it's changed the way that I navigate my life. It's helped me to be a better human being. If you're a spiritual seeker like I am, and you look around, you’ll realize there's no shortage of programs out there yet Luminous is unique and special for a few reasons; it actually brings together the best across domains from attachment therapy to Tibetan Buddhism, to human energy systems and healing. And it actually is one of the few programs that has a deep synthesis of healing and awakening. These are two things that are often separated in the spiritual marketplace, and Luminous offers a coherent integrated path..”

-Mikey S.


A recognition of our inner nature and new operating system.

“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. I'm able to be myself more. Able to be bigger and fill more space and not shrink. And I'm able to offer my gifts to the world.”

-Deb V.

Lincoln N. - LAI 2-Year Program Participant

More than an intro course but something that integrates into the fabric of our lives.

“With Luminous there's a real integration with everyday life, because it's not just something that you do over a winter break for 10 days sitting silently, and then learn to integrate yourself. There are eight modules spread out over two years, and that allows you to bring the practices into real life and integrate them into your work life, and be able to develop better communication skills that you can bring into your relationships. I've been able to bring Luminous teachings into work, into service in my communities, to family life, and grow as a human being.”
