Lumos’ leadership and mentorship were invaluable in empowering and encouraging us to face challenges, think out of the box, and achieve the impossible.

Mojgan Bashiri, DNP, RN, MHANursing Director, Los Angeles County Department of Health Services

We can't overstate the impact Lumos has made on our organization. In addition to providing tools that support the personal growth and resiliency of our staff and members, our two Lumos facilitators have embedded a culture of care into the fabric of the organization. Simply put, the training and support we receive from Lumos Transforms allows us to fully live into our values as an organization.

This journey could not have been facilitated by any other consulting firm. The team was personable, selfless, and went far beyond the extra mile to ensure each of us felt heard, were seen, and validated by our personal and collective thoughts and beliefs to get us where we have arrived.

Renee WilliamsContracts and Monitoring Manager, Housing for Health

It was truly a special opportunity to work with Lumos this last year. I found the experience validating, inspiring and powerful. I look forward to building on the work that we as a collective created and using the TIRO principals as a gentle reminder of self healing/change.

Lumos’ insights have made a difference in our individual hearts, if not the entire system. Many have voices where they never thought they would, and those voices come with new ideas that will succeed.

Our bespoke, expansive solutions help clients build systems that grow capacity and nurture connection. Using a values-based approach, we co-create a more just and equitable world where everyone can thrive.
  • We consider process and outcome crucial for achieving sustainable results.
  • We address individuals’ physical, mental, and emotional well-being, as well as the culture and systems in which they operate.
  • We take a structural, systemic, and relational approach to addressing problems, recognizing that all three areas must be worked on simultaneously.
  • We co-create inclusive and equitable spaces for all, centering the voices and experiences of those historically and currently marginalized.
  • We challenge the status quo and support our clients in creating systemic changes that promote justice and liberation.
  • We emphasize the importance of building strong, positive relationships between team members and between staff and leadership.
  • We recognize that many organizational problems are rooted in relational issues exacerbated by undernourishing, taxing, and punitive systems.
  • We hold that people build structures and systems and that if these structures and systems do not center safety and equity, they will influence the organization’s overall culture.
  • We emphasize the importance of creating a sense of security for individuals to fully engage in the organization’s work.
  • We recognize that psychological safety is a lived experience held in the body and cannot be created by policies alone.
  • We utilize mind-body practices to help individuals engage with their physical experience, increasing awareness of their body’s responses and influence on their well-being and work.
  • We work with clients to create spaces that support well-being and wellness.
  • We prioritize real, measurable outcomes over the optics of diversity and wellness.
  • We assess clients’ specific needs and strengths to create context-responsive solutions.
  • We track progress and adjust strategies to achieve sustainable and transformative change.

The Resilience Toolkit is the only programme we feel as an organisation we can wholeheartedly advocate for when we are asked by peers in the field of health, medicine and or social change on trauma or resilience training. We have yet to find another programme with the deep rigour, accessibility and cohesiveness that this programme offers. Each of the trainers are deeply embedded in the work and the richness is overflowing.

Farzana KahnExecutive Co-Director, Healing Justice London

In LA County we are witnessing an alarming number of releases in reentry. The people are not numbers. They are human beings who have served their mandated sentences and have no where to go. Skid Row DTLA has already reported [COVID-19] cases in the most marginalized community. I look to the Lumos team for ways to cope. This training is to help essential workers and peers, grassroots organizations, and anyone who is being affected by this pandemic. Thank you, Lumos. This is life-changing.

Sarah WilshinskyCo-chair, IBH committee at The Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership

I strongly recommend Lumos Transforms to any organization or community in search of support. Lumos Transforms is dynamic, thoughtful, evidence-based, and collaborative. The entire team lives the mission of the organization to create a lasting impact on those they work with.

Alison BravoFounder and former Director, Empower Generations

The Resilience Toolkit empowered my team to draw from many options to appropriately, quickly and easily address what they need to recover from stress. Nkem is a powerful leader, teacher and healer who has put together something vital and important. I am excited to see her work touch more people. I highly recommend the Resilience Toolkit if you're a human being.
