Our Curriculum

Taught by the founders of the Luminous technique and supported by adjunct faculty, interns, assistants, and guest teachers, the Luminous Awareness Institute's 2-Year program occurs over approximately 18 months, with eight immersive 4-day modules (Thursday - Sunday) every 9-12 weeks and two 2-day meditation weekends in January of 2018 and 2019. There are 7 themed modules and the final module is for integration.

Our modules are hosted in retreat centers in Northern California. Our time together usually begins around noon on Thursday and concludes about 6:30pm on Sunday evening. Modules are a mix of teaching lectures, experiential practice, group and individual opportunities to deepen into the material, and rich community connection with others of like mind. Meditation weekends are held in the Bay Area. Lodging is not provided.

Optional practice labs (with advanced students or teaching assistants facilitating), pods (small group session experiences), exercises and homework to practice and refine the skills and growth being taught, and a private Facebook community for connection with other students, are available to enhance our time between modules and help integrate the work into our personal and professional lives.

Module 1

Module 1 - AIR - Stability and Freedom

HOW YOU HEAL

Ordinary Self

You may identify with the quality of Air if you notice that you are highly attuned and you pick up on subtle cues that others seem to have missed. You might also have the distortion of air, if you feel “too sensitive” and as a result feel like running away or hiding from everything that feels overwhelming. In those moments you might become spacy, dissociated, or otherwise ungrounded. For example, people with this distortion often hang out at the periphery of groups or avoid them altogether and instead disappear into computers, books, or other isolated activities.

In Module 1 you will understand and access deep healing at the root of what causes this fear, disconnection, and isolation. Healing at this level brings an ability to ground, and a deep sense of security, stability, and belonging.

WHAT YOU LEARN

Awakened Self: Spacious Awareness

In Module 1 you will experience resting in Spacious Awareness, where you access the ground of being: vast, bright, transparent, and still. In this state there is an immense sense of freedom from constraint. Unbounded by conditioning, you become the ever present witness - noticing experiences as they arise, without identifying with them or having any reactivity. Instead, you are the limitless container for everything that is flowing through the space of you.

As you cultivate spacious awareness you will gain a sense of inner stability and feel much less reactive to your environment, other people, and the ups and downs of life.

Subtle Self - Energetic Gift: Air Bending

In Module 1 you develop Air Bending skills: the superpower to move awareness anywhere in the boundless field. You will learn to rest in one vast, interconnected field and span your attention nonlocally to perceive information beyond the reaches of your body or five senses. For example, you can learn to put attention on someone else for the sake of healing and help locate the energetic blockages in their system.
