Luminate’s purpose is to co-create a thriving festival of music, arts and inspiration, activating positive change beneficial to the ecology.

Luminate’s vision is heart-centred community flourishing in resonance with nature.

Within the context of a rapidly changing world, it feels more important than ever to have clarity on our vision and to remain focused on embodying our purpose right now.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 10th Luminate next summer during Lughnasadgh (“Lunasa”), midway between summer solstice & autumn equinox, on the crystal mountain of Pikikirunga here in Aotearoa.


Bio-Optimise and Thrive at Luminate

Luminate 2021 will be our 10th festival, and to celebrate this we have chosen a theme that aligns with our purpose and vision: Bio-Optimise and Thrive.

Bio-Optimise refers to: Enhancing our internal biology, our external environment and power of the mind to achieve optimal health.

The motivation for this theme comes from the question – How can Luminate best be of service?
Over the coming months we will be sharing the techniques and technology that inspire us in our personal journeys of Bio-Optimising and Thriving, via this website, in our newsletters and in social media channels. We intend to delve deep into these topics at the next Luminate festival. We invite our Luminate community to action optimising health right now, and to feel the essence of being part of an interconnected heart-centred community thriving in balance with nature.

Visit the INSPIRING section here on the Luminate website to access a selection of articles and videos that we think are highly informative, inspiring and aligned with the theme of Luminate 2021.
