Welcome to the Luminous Part website

Luminous Part is a book of interviews portraying great dreamers – artists, scientists and athletes who have a talent to encourage other people. Its title refers to George Saunders’ words: “That luminous part of you that exists beyond personality – your soul, if you will – is as bright and shining as any that has ever been.” Once we occasionally saw it in Tom Hiddleston’s Twitter, and we did believe them – George and Tom.

People are familiar with this concept on intuitive level – everybody knows how does “a fire” in someone’s eyes look like. But where does it come from? How can we share it? We focus on our speakers’ philosophy in search of inspiring experience they might share, and the inner light they might show. Thus we aim to help our readers to find their vocation and a way to a meaningful life. We know that some of the stars are bright and luminous indeed. People do illuminate people, handing a fire of their insights over from mind to mind. But the fire never gets less.
