What is The Shine?

The Shine is a mindfully-curated variety show that takes place in New York and Los Angeles once every couple of months. This alcohol-free event features a centering meditation, music from a local band, an inspiring short film, grassroots philanthropy, delicious food, and storytelling. Our mission is to create a fun and welcoming social environment where attendees can strike up meaningful conversations and make lasting connections that leave them feeling inspired to do more, give more, and be more. We are an all-volunteer organization and 100% of ticket sales is used for production costs. We hope to see you at The Shine!
