Lumos Center offers programs that support a deeper awakening of embodied presence for individuals and groups. Events are facilitated by Cathy Black through a variety of meditation, movement, and subtle energy healing classes. She also uses art, writing, labyrinth walks, and other expressive modalities to reveal and honor a person’s unique expressions.  All programs are designed to encourage growth and healing for body, heart, and spirit – to support inner peace and knowing of oneself more deeply. Cathy facilitates with an intuitive and energetically sensitive awareness of individuals and the group that brings an aliveness and relevance to the teachings.

Lumos programs provide for individual and group learning environments.  When it is time to focus on the inner life, retreats and personal sessions are available to go deep within and listen to the subtle cues of the self. When a group focuses together, as in a meditation, retreat, or workshop setting, there is support to listen to the self more deeply and to act authentically from an embodied presence.  Feedback from the group environment helps us to understand ourselves in community and gives meaning to our social expression and service. Most events are held at TaoSatva, a beautiful retreat center in Taos, New Mexico, and online during Covid-19.
