We live in an era that emphasizes the need for creation and promotion. There is a lot of focus on getting things out into the world, and little focus on building a foundation that is able to sustain these creations, and allow the creators to thrive. We believe that when you know the purpose of your life, you tend to live a more meaningful existence than those who don’t. You live each day to the fullest, because you know who you are, and what you’re meant to contribute to this world.
Over the past few years, we have built a network of over 60,000+ people who are committed to our Lumination Tribe. We also create and distribute content via The Lumination Show, The Lumination Podcast, Lumination Live, and our Gen Z platform Lumination Z.
Our flagship product, The Lumination Show is a weekly video podcast series that explores self awareness, self worth, and living life on purpose. On this show, we sit down with people whose journey we are intrigued by, and who we believe have lessons that the world needs to hear about. We explore these stories touching on topics such as: Identity, Comparison, Embracing uniqueness, Imposter syndrome, Partnerships & team dynamics, Overcoming resistance, Collaboration,Gratitude, Capacity building etc. We hope that you join us on this mission to shift mindsets, inspire hearts and transform lives.
This is Lumination.
