A community once united by interconnectedness and love has arrived at a moment of great tension. In our conscious communities nationwide, we’re seeing friends and family fighting with and shaming one another over masks, vaccines and the election, leaving many of us feeling scared, uncertain, judged, demonized or disconnected from each other.


As an organization, ILLUMINATE’s mission is to elevate human consciousness and inspire lasting transformation through cinema, discussion and immersive experiences. We are not about taking sides; we are about expanding awareness toward inclusiveness and wholeness.


In that light, we invite you to join our expert panelists in a free event designed to explore how our minds become polarized in the pursuit of truth, and how we can find our way back to a community oriented toward tolerance, acceptance and love.
