  • Energetic Awareness Practices

By integrating seemingly disparate paradigms into one coherent whole, we are revealing a wider, seamless view and offering you a comprehensive set of tools for healing and awakening.

Advanced Awakening Course

Learn how to allow the Self-Organizing and Self-Liberating Wisdom to become the source of healing and realization. Allow the natural liberation process to unfold with effortless grace.

Advanced Awakening Course

An 8-month course for those who have stable access to Simultaneous Awareness.
Next dates TBD.

Group limited to 25 students.

The Advanced Awakening program will provide advanced meditation practices for stabilizing Awakening and liberation practices for embodied realization.

The Awakening and Healing path that we are pointing to in Luminous has infinite depth - it is a path that can be life long.

Ongoing practice deepens and expands the realization of the 7 Awakened Wisdom qualities and unravels more layers of the onion that obscure the complete realization and embodiment of our True Nature.

In connection with like-hearted community and a transformative energetic-wisdom vehicle, Luminous can provide an ongoing container in which to awaken and heal in deeper and more refined ways.


  • One 5-day Retreat with Anna-Lisa Adelberg and John Churchill
  • Seven 1-day Virtual Retreats with Anna-Lisa Adelberg
  • Seven Peer Practice Groups

Play in the magical and the sacred, harness the power of our collective awareness, and create an amplified energetic field. In just a few hours together, we can create a container that is profoundly healing, heart warming, and magical.

Luminous Circles

In-Person & Virtual Circles Offered

With Anna-Lisa Adelberg

Luminous Circles are 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:

  • Practice shifting your awareness from ordinary to extraordinary.
  • Be introduced to the 7 Awakened Wisdom Qualities.
  • Learn about different Energetic Constitutions.
  • Connect to other people on a whole other level.
  • Begin to understand how our early development and attachment inform our lived experience.

Each Circle draws on core teachings and practices from our 2-Year program to invite the participants into a unique and emergent exploration and offer a taste of the Luminous experience.

Circles will be offered both virtually and in-person.

Upcoming Circles:

No Circles are currently scheduled.
