What does Illumina mean?

We chose the name Illumina East for our center with great intention.  Illumina derives from the Latin word illuminare, “to bring light to”. We created a vibration in our space for students to explore the hidden places within and to fully access their innate potential for expansion. This is what we bring light to. We all have the ability to shine and to be radiant: here you will find the right tools and space to do so. We reference the east as tribute to our beloved edgy, artsy East Village locale which contains the vibrational energy of the old and young. The East is also where the sun rises — beginning the illumination of the day.
