Feedback from Seminar Participants for the Luminous Body courses.

We hear many comments and get much feedback at every seminar about people's experiences with DaBen's teachings.  Since most people do not write reviews, but let us know in person what they experience, we want to share some of their feedback with you. 

These are some comments people made during and after the seminars about their experiences of the luminous body and DaBen’s luminous body meditations. (See bottom of page for course descriptions and links to current seminars being taught in this series.

“New Senses are opening up since the seminars! This has allowed me to communicate with my cats and dog in a new way that they are responding to. I am able to better sense what they are telling me as well. It is a full body, almost 3-D experience of their reality that is so rich it is exquisite. I am much more able to connect with the earth and trees as well.”

New Birth: “I feel as if I am experiencing something like a new birth, and others I have talked to feel the same way.”

“The next step on my path was given to me during a journey! This is an answer to all of my asking to know what I am to do next. This just dropped in, out of the blue, during the journey! There was such a sense of rightness to the message." 

"During the journeys my vision opened and the pieces of my life fell into place. I could see what I needed to do next." 

“My purpose came to me. I was shown how to create and share my practice through a teaching program. I do not know how it will all come together but I know it will happen.”

Using light body spaces into my daily life: "I have wondered how the light body would translate into my daily life. I had one epiphany after another about how to do this. I realize now how the light body and luminous body are supporting all that I do, giving me a vast perspective on my life." 

“I feel so happy! There is a feeling of joy that I cannot explain in words. Everybody I talk with at the seminar is so excited about what has been revealed to them during DaBen’s journeys. You can see the joy on everybody’s face.”

Guidance: "In these new spaces of the luminous body I have experienced clear guidance, some in the form of new senses that involve inner visions and some through inner hearing. It is different than from what I have experienced in the past. The messages are very much geared to teaching me and helping me with new ideas and which ways to go. It feels like this is the beginning of a new phase." 

A new spiritual vision experience: “I started opening to a new quality of spiritual vision. This seems to be coming as part of my new work that is unfolding. I am so excited!” 

"While working with the Vast beings I started having some incredible insights. I had no idea that these being would offer these kinds of opportunities." 

Fun and Play: “The seminars have been all about play. The life-changing experiences are not work. It is so much fun and incredibly transformative to be in these spaces!”

Thoughts and Beliefs: “I now realize what thoughts and beliefs have been imprisoning me, and how (with or through) the luminous body I can lift above these.” 

“I realize now that there are many more options available to me that I never knew existed before. I can now move forward; I know what I need to do. I am no longer afraid. I know new thoughts will unfold to support me.” 

Pieces Scattered and Now Brought Back Together: "Before I came, there was a feeling that I had “pieces” associated with my life that were scattered or just not connected, and now those pieces, like a puzzle, have become part of a bigger picture."

“I no longer doubt myself and my beliefs. I know for certain that nobody can tempt me to doubt myself and my beliefs anymore (while pointing to his heart). I KNOW what I know. “

Surrendering: "I was finally able to surrender and walk away from so many old beliefs and ideas. DaBen kept saying that, and finally, somehow it happened and when it did it was like suddenly being lifted into an entirely different space. Entirely different! There was this BIG opening." 

"For whatever reason, it has been hard for me to let go and trust the process. And then it happened! During one of the DaBen journeys a door opened into an entirely new experience. DaBen has been telling us to trust the process and how “surrender” is important, and I finally got the message and it worked."

"There is a new freedom I feel inside of me that brings so much happiness. It is like I know myself more than I have ever known myself before, and that brings me a kind of happiness that I can barely hold back."

Experienced an entirely new dimension of light: ”During a journey I felt like I entered a whole new dimension of light, with Vast beings and a feeling of profound love beyond what I have ever experienced. I will never be the same. I cannot wait to continue to explore this whole new luminous realm.”

Incredible Peace: “The experience of peace cannot be described because it is a different state than what we think of as ordinary peace. There needs to be a new word for this deep peace, because our existing words do not do justice to it.” 

“I can rise into a higher realization and perspective of my life than before. During DaBen’s journeys I felt like my foundation expanded and now I can rise into a higher understanding of my life and into more light than ever before. 

Luminous Body Experience: "I had the most amazing experience of the luminous body in these journeys and it is REAL!"

~100 Years of Light In-Person Seminar ~

Evolving the Work of Orin and DaBen

 October 11-13, 2024
Ashland, Oregon


 Orin and DaBen tell us that we are the Seeds of this work. Each of us who have loved and evolved with these energies for years and decades are the current expression of these light frequencies into earth plane and beyond. As the embodiment of this extraordinary Light, it is a gift to offer it to generations to come.

As Duane often reminded us, we cannot do this alone—we need each other. You are an integral part of the creation of this incoming pattern of Light. Your presence is essential to creating the most richness possible. Join us in person in October as we evolve this shimmering mandala that is our community of Light Beings.

Be among the first to hear NEW works. This Seminar will include previously unpublished material from both our teachers, Duane Packer and Sanaya Roman. There is a small archive of unpublished work which is being lovingly curated by the Board and LuminEssence staff. Some of this work will be shared at the seminar. We expect to also offer journeys and talks from our published archives. There will be live transmissions and teachings from Senior Teachers and some new faces as well. We plan to have Seed/Discovery and Teachers group gatherings. There will be time to play and socialize, too.

We truly hope you will join us in the joy of bringing forth the energies that are becoming the Orin DaBen Foundation. Be a part of these first steps into the future which Orin and DaBen, Duane and Sanaya have prepared for us.
