Three reasons to train in the Luminous Arts
The Luminous Arts are skill based.
This means we start with the fundamental building blocks of Being in Manifestation and step by step build our skills like we would in any creative discipline: art, music, engineering etc.
This step by step approach allows us to grow in developmental stages from self initiation, to adaptation, to mastery if that is the level you choose to achieve.
Being a skill-based practioner you realize that knowing even the most profound metaphysical and esoteric truths do nothing for you without developing the actual skills to use them and then actually using them in your daily life.
The Luminous Arts are for the serious practitioner
Serious manifestation isn't effortless and like all Arts, the Art of Life requires intense intent, practice and concentration. Therefore our workshops are not for the spiritual collector looking for more law of attraction theories, secrets or quantum codes.
These workshops are for those ready to develop their skillful means with deep inner focus, understanding and practice.
To understand the third reason to train in the Luminous Arts I must detour into the darker side of the multi billion dollar a year self help, pseudo spirituality industry.
A lot of today's self help courses and seminars are designed for people to actually fail. This way they have to buy into more workshops or levels in the organization. .
On the more vapid side of things, many workshops and seminars are basically mash ups of motivational cliches sprinkled with a generous dose of words like love, compassion, empowerment, forgiveness and other ideas that sound deeply meaningful but without any regard to their context, place of use or development. Also, depending on the seminar's particular niche there may be crystals, channeled entities, chakras etc. thrown into the mix.
These mash ups please everyone attending. With so many references to love, compassion, quantum mechanics, quotes from the Buddha and Jesus... there is something for everyone to agree with. Yet in reality no new learnings took place, no actual transformations were made, but everyone walked away feeling enlightened, validated yet completely unchanged.
On the more sinister side.
A powerful mind control practice used by many seminar organizations, religious and 'spiritual' schools is to belittle your ego, deconstruct your perceptions, denigrate your points of view and doubt your own mind and motivations. These methods, developed both in the East and West are meant to keep people mindless, absolutely obedient, powerless and giving their full life energies to the school, religion, guru or organization.
These organizations eventually ask you to recruit more members, to shun those who disagree with their 'enlightened' teachings and pressure you either through 'love bombing' or threat of exclusion to give them ever increasing amounts of your time and money whether ten percent or all of it.
In the Practice of the Lumious Art we don't do any of these things, because our work is about our awakening inside Pure Creating Intelligence, not in its opposite.
This brings us to the third reason to train in the Luminous Arts.
The foundations of the Luminous Arts are these:
There's only one rule:
