This Lumina Spark course is for alumni of the MBCPM™ courses, specifically profiling the unique qualities of each participant, in their confidential customized “portrait”, in detail. Dr. Gardner-Nix trained in this course and became a Canadian Lumina affiliate in 2011, and has since researched this course for managing pain: pilot research on more than 50 patients who completed this course showed it did reduce pain. More than 150 patients and MBCPM™ facilitators have now gone through this course. Sheri-Leigh Liddard, a graduate of MBCPM™ and an MBCPM™ facilitator assistant, has also been trained by Lumina Canada and is offering courses for MBCPM™ alumni and facilitators, and corporations, in Lumina Spark.
Corporate Lumina Learning
NNC now offers Lumina Spark, Lumina Leader and Lumina 360 to corporations, workforces, wanting Lumina as their team building and leadership tool within their organizations. Lumina is the latest generation of such tools and is aligned with Jung’s school of psychology, providing insight in how our characteristics shift under our underlying, everyday and over extended conditions experienced by us all in our day to day lives. This tool assists in strategies to work well with others, regain our composure during challenging times and understand our unique strengths we can leverage in achieving team objectives. “Blending” our differences can be our team’s (or family’s) strength.

About Lumina Spark Course:
From an aluminus who took it in 2013:
“Upon first hearing of Lumina Spark, past corporate trainings such as Myers-Briggs or other personality-Type/Psychometrics training sessions they may have attended in the past came to mind. What follows is my attempt at a comparison:
Many of these courses are geared toward one’s “working style” or “at work persona” and, I found, offer little insight to one’s critical family and social styles. Having worked most of my career in a corporate world I found these corporate offerings useful. They helped by giving folks a common terminology, insights in bringing out their best, and how to truly benefit from the diverse styles and backgrounds within the team.
Stepping into Lumina Spark I was expecting another similar product. What I found most beneficial was the very detailed profiling of the various “personas” or “modes” we operate within during our daily lives away from work as well: how we operate at work vs. how we act with family or friends vs. how we truly feel inside about how we are perceived. Lumina Spark helped me profile at least 3 of my personas and understand previously unrecognized differences between them, and at times, internal conflicts between them.
So as much as Lumina Spark could be applied to a work or corporate setting, to me it seems to be somewhat unique by providing methods to resolve internal conflicts between our various personas, putting one’s mind at ease. Interpersonal relationships are usually a significant stressor on our lives and this tool does seem to help with this a great deal. Having identified a direct link between pain and stress Dr. Jackie takes it one step further by leveraging her years of experience and customizing the courses to the everyday needs of those of us experiencing chronic pain. The results are surprisingly effective.
