ILUMINA IS AN INTERACTIVE LIGHT AND SOUND SCULPTURE POWERED BY PARTICIPANTS' COLLECTIVE HEART.
During the experience, participants enter into a state of coherence, or deep harmony with themselves, one another, and the universe. Sensors provided by the HearthMath Institute measure their collective state of coherence, which in turn activates the sculpture’s stunning light-show and soundscape. ILUMINA is a profound visual, aural, and mystical experience that highlights the interconnectivity of our planet and enhances the global energy field.

THE BETTER THE PEOPLE - PLANET CONNECTION IS UNDERSTOOD, THE MORE WE CAN ACHIEVE
MENTAL, EMOTIONAL STABILITY AND WELL-BEING.
During the ILUMINA experience, participants engage in a breathing meditation that ushers them into a state of coherence, or deep harmony with themselves, one another, and the universe. Sensors provided by the HearthMath Institute measure each individual’s unique state of coherence and averages them together. ILUMINA’s dazzling lighting design and moving soundscape respond to this algorithm: as the group becomes more coherent, the sculpture glows brighter and the music swells. The sound composition, which consists of thirteen chord progressions, was composed to facilitate a deeply meditative state and activate positive emotions such as love and gratitude.
The HearthMath Institute has shown that breathing into the heart center while activating positive emotions can result in optimal clarity, health, and performance. In a coherent state, the body, mind, and spirit are synchronized in a symphony of wellness. Individuals can achieve increased personal coherence by learning to consistently regulate their emotions from an intuitive internal reference point. When a group of people consciously enters into a collective state of coherence together, they can powerfully enhance the global energy field. In a heart connected world, we are united, whole, and in harmony with our higher selves, others, and Mother Earth.
