We are being considered for a SXSW panel and public voting is in full swing. Please visit and "vote up" our proposed panel, we would really appreciate it.
We proposed this panel as we believe Austin and the SXSW venue to be hubs for appreciating and exploring the crossroads of consciousness and technology.
Back From Austria
I had an amazing trip to Austria to discover more about Light Attendance GMBH, the consciousness-bending company based in Innsbruck and to visit the developers of the Lucia No.3 in Kuffstein, Austria. It was so amazing that getting my feet back under me and writing this post has taken over a month.
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and staying with Sigrid Pearce, the delightfully fun, yet pragmatic, business intellectual guiding the company. Not only was she a wealth of insight regarding the company, it's actors, and actions; she shared valuable technical information that will allow me to identify and create more targeted light sessions. I also believe what she shared will help us to better understand the Lucid Light's capabilities and learn to optimize how we use it.
This is from a Lucia No.3 Lucid Light session last year where our client graciously agreed to allow us to take a few photos or shoot some video to post on our site.
During her 5 minute hypnagogic light expeience, I took 2 or 3 photos and this short video. She had been silent until I turned began to record her. This is what transpired.
(I love that "wait-for-it" moment)
As you can tell from the video, there is more to this than just blinking lights.
If you've been waiting to try the Lucid Light, now is your chance!
In honor of the International Day of Light being celebrated on 22 September 2017, we are forgoing the standard $75.00 fee, and are providing full length sessions with the Lucia No.3 for love offerings (donations) on this special day.
We want to provide an opportunity for anyone who wishes to try this amazing new technology to be able to do so, no matter where they may be along the socio-economic continuum.
On Sept 22nd; we, and light attendants around the world, will be sharing a special program created by the brilliant people in Austria behind this technology and collecting your responses and insights.
Our desire is to introduce our entire community to meditation in an effortless, entertaining, and visually spectacular manner that will help each quickly see the value in, and have a desire to add comfort, ease, and clarity to their lives through meditation. We believe it is easier to find your way somewhere if you have been there before and this light brings your brainwave states to levels unachievable to most without years of meditation. The Lucid Light provides a hypnagogic light experience while stimulating the pineal gland (opening the 3rd eye), thereby stimulating/releasing neurotransmitters and hormones associated with the deepest levels of meditation. Take advantage of this opportunity to experience effortless meditation and a peek into the vast beauty within.

According to an article in the BBC, flashes of light may impact jet lag. It's one of the most common sleep disorders as millions of people struggle with it and it's impacts. The National Sleep Foundation says the condition results from an imbalance in our body's biological clock caused by traveling to different time zones.
They state that,
Basically, our bodies work on a 24-hour cycle called "circadian rhythms." These rhythms are measured by the distinct rise and fall of body temperature, plasma levels of certain hormones and other biological conditions. All of these are influenced by our exposure to sunlight and help determine when we sleep and when we wake.
The people at how-cast put together a cheeky video on 8 ways to combat the fatigue and restless associated with jet lag:
Their views on the best way to address jet lag include these 8 suggestions:
My sweetheart was doing her best to understand as I gushed about my experiences with the Lucid Light. She looked at me as if I lost a number of my few remaining marbles. I shared what each of the light programs I tried “felt” like. Attempting to explain the numerous, vibrant, indescribable colors, the sacred geometry, the visions, and a sudden acceptance of the possibility of a multi-verse.
With each new sentence out of my mouth, I could see that she was trying to blink away her disbelief and embrace the crazy words coming out of my mouth. She listened to me as I told her of warm sensations; reminiscent of happy childhood memories, sacred geometry beyond my wildest dreams, and a sense that no matter what — everything is O.K..
I don’t think she was convinced by my words, but the changes I exhibited caught her attention. The first recognizable alteration to my typical state was noticeable when calling her right after my first full Lucid Light session. She was taken by how calmly I interacted with her on the phone while I was in the passenger seat of a friend’s car as she closely tailgated the car in front of us in heavy snow, during rush hour. I stayed calm and quiet about her driving... really calm.
As days passed, my words and actions indicated an extended manifestation of the impacts of the light. It became apparent that she was becoming more certain about our potential purchase. Then Samantha said to me, "We need to find a way to bring this light back to Austin. We have friends and family who could really benefit."
In December of 2014, I received a call from my best friend from college. She had just met a young lady in San Francisco who introduced her to an amazing new technology, the Lucia N°03 (A hypnagogic light and meditation appliance). She spent the next one and a half hours detailing her 45 minute experience. She attempted to share what her experience was like: What she saw, heard, felt, and numerous attempts to explain what she encountered. It lead her to a peaceful loss for words.
As she was concluding her call, she said, “I think if I were to do this once a month, I’d flat be a better person.” That stopped me dead in my tracks. She is one of the most amazing women I’ve ever known. I was intrigued to the point of looking at airfares to fly over a thousand miles to try it myself. This may not sound like much to many of you, but I swore off non-mandatory air travel years ago and those close to me know how adamant I have been about it. To my surprise, I found myself flying from Austin, TX to Boulder, CO about two weeks later to meet up with my guide to the light. Allison turned out to be a delightful young lady who I readily identified with. She made me feel at home, bought me breakfast, drove me back to her office, made me herbal tea, and answered lots of questions I had about this amazing technology. Then, it was time.
I put on headphones and positioned myself comfortably on her couch, under a light that looks something like this:
Even after being told detail after detail of my friend’s experience, having all of my questions answered by my guide, and thinking I knew what I might experience, I still really had no idea what I was about to experience.
