Embracing healing, fostering connection, and igniting change – together


The Lumos Community is a virtual, global gathering space of real humans committed to the beautifully messy work of healing trauma, unlearning oppression, and building liberatory relationships–within ourselves and our world.

Our members are folks who are actively pursuing healing from all forms of trauma and oppression. We’re a diverse group united by our desire to live our lives with more ease, joy, and love. We’re all seekers. Many of us are healers or helpers. We lead with empathy and are guided by justice. 


We’re people who believe that deep wellness and genuine connections create a cascade of positive change. In this private space we uplift each other, challenge systems, share laughs, and dream up a world where collective liberation is the norm. We don’t have all the answers but we’re figuring it out together in real time.

Whether you’re years into a journey of self-discovery or just starting out, you belong here. Bring your whole self – the joys, the struggles, and everything in between – and join us in having brave conversations, building real relationships, and creating a world where we all can thrive.

“To everyone in cramped spaces and stifling atmospheres
letting in fresh air and finding wiggle room
embracing messiness and mistakes together
learning to move with fierce love and uncertainty
making us capable of something new”
— Nick Montgomery and carla bergman
Dedication from Joyful Militancy

The Lumos Community Affinity Groups embrace the beautiful chaos of the human experience. We may not have all the answers, but we’re stumbling towards wisdom together. Through laughter, tears, and everything in between, these groups value every voice and celebrate every journey.


In the BIPOC Community, we create a safe, connected space to celebrate the richness of our diverse cultures and experiences. Together, we explore the intersections of identity, race, and systemic challenges while supporting one another through shared stories and collective wisdom. We engage in open dialogues that deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us as we work towards dismantling oppressive systems and creating a more just and equitable society.


The LGBTQIA+ Community is a vibrant and welcoming space where we embrace and celebrate the full spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities. Here, we come together to share our unique journeys, support one another in the face of adversity, and collectively envision a world where love, acceptance, and equality reign supreme. Through open and honest conversations, we foster a deeper understanding of ourselves and the diverse experiences within our community.


In the Disability Community, we foster a warm, inclusive space where individuals with visible and invisible disabilities come together to share their triumphs, challenges, and unique perspectives.

Through the power of shared experiences and collective wisdom, we challenge societal norms and strive for a world that truly includes everyone.

A white heart with cold cracks covering the surface

The Recovery Community is a compassionate and supportive space where individuals on the path to healing from substance use and/or compulsive behaviors can find solace and understanding. Together, we share our stories, flex our relational muscles, and explore inclusive approaches to recovery. We challenge stigmas surrounding addiction and mental health and, through honest dialogue, cultivate a deeper understanding of ourselves and the complex journey of recovery.


In the Lumos Book Club, we don’t just read; we ideate, interpret, and grow. We engage with expansive concepts, challenge old thinking, and explore what’s possible. Through the power of shared wisdom and open dialogue, we cultivate a deeper understanding of ourselves, each other, and the systems we seek to transform.


The Palestinian Support Community is a supportive and nurturing space for Palestinians across the diaspora and allies for a Free Palestine. In response to the emergent need for a community resourcing space, as we continue to bear witness to the ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people, we hold weekly, virtual, hour-long sessions that provide relational building and body-based tools to sustain care, hope, and action. This community is a safe space to process emotions such as anger, rage, loneliness, hopelessness, powerlessness, survivor’s guilt, heartbreak, and grief. Through open and honest conversations, we unite in solidarity for a Free Palestine in our lifetime.
