The word NUMINOUS was coined in 1917 by Rudolph Otto, a German theologian and scholar of comparative religion. Otto defined the numinous as a nonrational nonsensory experience or feeling whose primary and immediate object is outside the self. Author CS Lewis and founder of analytical psychology Carl Jung used the word prominently in their writings, making it more well-known.
Numinous events typically fill us with a sense that we are in contact with something more significant than the individual self or ego. Although the Numinous is ineffable, numinous dreams and experiences have a lingering presence that stays with us and continues to impact us each time we recall them. They can often influence us for our entire lives.
Living a life that makes room for the Numinous seems to bring us back to that sense of awe and wonder we had as children and infuses life with greater energy and delight.
Unfortunately, many pop-culture media experiences, bottom-line business practices, and even many religious rituals can make little room for the numinous…which can lead to feelings of emptiness, despair, and powerlessness.
NUMINOUS programs are designed to help you access the numinous space in your consciousness, which is a reliable reservoir for well-being and wonder
