Erik founded Lucid Light LLC in February of 2015 after experiencing a dramatic personal shift in his life due to the Lucia N3 meditation appliance on New Year's Day of 2015.
He experienced a sudden sense of well-being and non-perturbedness which overcame him and lasted longer than he expected, he knew he had to bring it back to the Austin, TX community. He believes the Lucid Light will be one of the keys to our community(ies) recognizing greater comfort, creativity, and connection between us all.
Erik began meditating in a dojo, somewhat against his will, at the age of 10. He accidentally recognized a sense of peace, connection, and empowerment associated with his meditations around age 11.
Esoteric healing and spiritual seeking quickly became favorite topics of study and practice and have remained a constant in his life.
Because of the dedication and focus required to continue a meditation practice, it all but vanished during his college and early career years. (Ironically, meditation might have been most beneficial during those years)
After integrating meditation into daily massage and healing work, it became obvious how difficult it is for many in today's world to step out of the almost constant state of fight-or-flight we operate in. It can be difficult torecognize the importance of, allocate time for, and expend the effort to reach these reparative, altered states of consciousness.
Erik experimented with many different ways to meditate: walking and guided meditations, painting, martial arts, flow arts (poi, staff, whips), breath work, yoga, fire and flame meditations, sun gazing, drumming, etc.
Erik has stated his intent is to aid great numbers of people to reach meditative and modified states of consciousness so that we might all understand and appreciate ourselves and each other better.
