Embody change,
unlock potential,
transform our world.

Change happens when people feel safe, and true safety lives within us…

To achieve our greatest potential, we must change. Yet change is terrifying because we find security in the familiar—even when it no longer serves us. Most people attempt change by searching for safety through controlling their external environment, which is often unstable. Lumos approaches change by anchoring to inner safety—the most reliable source of safety we can depend on, an oasis we can always return to when we face adversity.

Our approach to change is Lumos: the capacity to consistently access inner safety, to embrace the process of deep transformation, and to light the way towards a thriving future.

We’ve worked with…

I highly recommend The Resilience Toolkit. Nkem Ndefo has synthesized her vast experiences and expertise to present multiple practices, appropriate at various levels of nervous system activation, for the cultivation of resilience. The work is presented with a trustworthy gentleness, and honors one's response to various forms of mindfulness and tremoring. I found the workshop very educational and instructive, and walked away with a better understanding of and access to vital resources for myself and others, in my work as a social worker.

Though I’m extremely familiar with the coping mechanisms to reduce anxiety; nothing was working. The Resilience Toolkit introduced me to techniques to help me connect more to my body. As much as I was experiencing severe anxiety; I wasn’t understanding how it was affecting my mind/body connection. Through compassion, understanding, enlightenment and positive energy, I began to make that connection. I am now living a life with less anxiety then I had before. To me, that is a blessing.

The Resilience Toolkit helped me shift my paradigm from pathology to non-judgment. The acknowledgment of innate biological states and the tools offered to downregulate the nervous system are very profound. Although this information was not new to me, the way it was presented created a shift for me. I’ve been practicing mindfulness and yoga for years and I see now that this trauma-informed piece had been missing.
