Luminous Minds Project mission is to liberate all minds that have been oppressed for far too long due to outdated and unconscious thinking within our education and world systems. We believe it is time for a new way of thinking and to change our minds about mental health, learning differences, hidden wounds and what we deem the standard for intelligence. We believe if the Education System was inclusive to all minds and focused not only on the needs of the state but the growth, safety and development of our citizens, we would have a drastically different society and world. One that is not only scientifically, medically and technically advanced, but one that is humanistic, trauma informed, socially, emotionally and artistically developed, philosophically inclined, culturally literate and multi-intelligent.
The Luminous Minds Project is developing community based education opportunities and events to evolve, socialize and grow out loud together. We strive to bring a fresh perspective to education, recovery and self development in order to change culture that is dedicated to improving and discovering the self. We use Buddhist Philosophy as a foundation for a clear view of life and to better understand the mind, human suffering and our capacity to expand our life condition, consciousness through a process of human transformation called
Trauma, Mental Illness, Addiction, Learning Differences and Hidden Wounds do not discriminate and effect every community.
We strive for intersectional socialization to strengthen friendships and community bonds to create a clear path way for our humanity to heal and thrive. We reflect on ways we can collectively heal from discrimination and stigma while bravely looking at issues that harm our local communities and how we can use art, story telling and heart to heart dialogue to bring us together. We are dedicated to creating spaces for artistic collaboration, community based systems of care and paradigm-shifting conversations in order to break outdated thinking that is oppressive, freeing our minds to become
socially and emotionally liberated.
Luminous Minds Project mission is to liberate all minds while expanding consciousness of self, others and the environment and how they interrelate with one another.
We actively advocate for those with learning differences and hidden wounds. Advocating for Trauma Informed Care and Arts Based Education in our Public Schools, Institutions and Organizations that assist learning and healing simultaneously while being inclusive to all minds.
We train and create Trauma Informed Spaces to decolonize and change culture by engaging others humanistically in order to create psychologically safe and emotionally supporting spaces.
We provide Coaching, Consulting, MeetUps and Dialogue groups to help widen the lens of the current dominate European Centric model that is often rooted in an academic, scientific and medical model that lacks a humanistic community approach. We believe it is vital to include Art, Culture, Philosophy, Identity and Spirituality to better understand our life condition and social and emotional development.
We place story telling at the center of everything we do to better understand and connect to ourself and others through honest heart to heart dialogue.
"Education is a crucial part in the intricate process of the development of human beings."
Luminous Minds Project is deeply rooted in Buddhist philosophy to remind us of the value of human life and that every life on this planet has the potential to create value within our society regardless of circumstances. We believe everyone has the capability to gain an awakened state of mind that is graceful, refined and multiple intelligent. With education, meditation and reprograming we can evolve our minds, bodies, hearts and spirits becoming more compassionate, understanding and inclusive to others.
We bring forth the revolutionary work of Buddhist philosopher and Educator Tsunesaburo Makiguchi to effectively change minds. His ideas about the nature of value and education serve to enhance our capacity to create value (happiness) from the challenges and opportunities life presents. Makiguchi's theories of value-creating education have inspired a growing body of research as well as innovative projects around the globe.
