If you’re reading this …

The Australasian Light Association as a Chapter Association of the International Light Association, represents a diverse group of individuals, including professionals as well as those with personal or creative interests.

Beyond individual interests, members of the ILA and ALA communities have a common desire to share knowledge, skills and passions: to learn about and apply the latest theories, techniques and technologies in light and colour; and use this knowledge to promote health, enhance performance and learning, and to raise consciousness about related issues.

The mission is to share information and educate, and create an open-hearted, broad-minded and integrative community in the field of light and colour (and other vibrational modalities).

Goals include:

• developing a network focused on the therapeutic uses of light and colour

• educating and informing about the field of light and colour

• promoting the field of light and colour and its applications

• representing professionals in the field of light and colour

• supporting relevant research and education
