On Saturday, August the 4th, Gallery Lucid will be hosting the Surreal Summer Visions art show and there will be no access to the Lucia No.3 until Monday, August the 6th.
Peeking beyond the veil
I often hear people speak of looking beyond the veil or "seeing through the veil" between "worlds". This sensation is not uncommon and has been written about for millenia.
I have had this experience numerous times. For me, it is a sense as if my consciouisness acknowledges the presence of a reality just beyod that of my five individual senses. I have long believed and professed that the secrets and magic of the universe are hidden in the subtleties and perceptions within ourselves and of our universe.
Mandelbrot Burning Man
We are back from traveling with the Lucia No.3 hypnagogic light (again) and hope to be sharing some photos and videos from some of our most recent travels with the Lucid Light before we head off for the next adventure. Sorry about not having more blog posts along the way thus far, but we hope to remedy that situation soon. We went to some beautiful places and met amazing people, but had very few opportunities to access the internet.
One of my daily meditation techniques is within art creation. I often geek out on friends and acquaintances about the art I create and I tend to throw around a number of terms. I know for some people, these terms are very familiar and you may even use them on a regular basis. For others I know, what I am about to share will be a number of new additions to the vocabulary.
What's a fractal?
One of my favorite fractal formulas to work with is the Mandelbrot set.
The term Mandelbrot set is used to refer both to a general class of fractal sets and to a particular instance of such a set. In general, a Mandelbrot set marks the set of points in the complex plane such that the corresponding Julia set is connected and not computable.
"The" Mandelbrot set is the set obtained from the quadratic recurrence equation where points in the complex plane for which the orbit of does not tend to infinity are in the set. Setting equal to any point in the set that is not a periodic point gives the same result. The Mandelbrot set was originally called a molecule by Mandelbrot. J. Hubbard and A. Douady proved that the Mandelbrot set is a connected set. I know it's starting to sound a bit nerdy, but the next frame shows the beauty someone armed with a little nerdiness can create.
The fractal above was created in an attempt to express the energetic experience of working with a Kundalini master and then using the Lucia No.3 in an attempt to integrate what transpired. This fractal piece was created using 3 separate fractal programs and editing, tweaking, and overlapping the images in Photoshop.
If you are heading out to Burning Man, look for the Lucia No.3(s) on the Playa. I will try to share when I receive reports back from Allison and Zack with The Traveling Light. I expect to hear back of great adventure, connection, and inspiration.
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.
We Have A New Office Location!
The transition is complete and we are overflowing with thankfulness! Lucid Light of Austin has moved to our new office!!! It is MUCH more spacious, has more parking, a meditation/yoga/teaching room, and will soon be host to numerous gatherings of healers, philosophers, and artists in our community. We will be posting the works of art that will be featured in our gallery here and hope to create the ability to purchase these works online.
Our New Address:

December 28th, 2016
What an amazing month!?! We have spent the month socializing, sharing the Lucia No.3, creating art, and we believe we may have found a new, larger, more accessible location for the Lucid Light Meditation Center and Art Studio. This lovely South Austin location will include a room for Lucid Light sessions and a meditation/yoga/art gallery room. If all progresses as expected, we hope this will become a space for local visionary artists to gather and create.
Although many artists spent the month of December focused on selling art, ours was occupied with the manifestation of creative expression. This was expressed in numerous forms: cooking, writing, singing, poetry, painting, and digital art. The images below are a sampling of some of our favorite digital creations this month.
Something else wonderful happened this month. We discovered more than one art printer who believes they can reproduce our images in a much larger format. If all goes well, we will move to the larger center and have some art produced in an appropriate size for the new studio/gallery!
Big change is in the air, use it to your (our) advantage. December has reinforced how desires for positive change can become manifest and how that power to create change is amplified with each new participant. "Be the change you wish to see" has seldom appeared so accessible to our culture.
What change do you wish to see this year and how can we participate in your vision?
When I first encountered the Lucid Light, I tried and tried to explain some of what I saw under the light, but felt as if my words were not doing the experience justice. I began doodling similar to the Zentangles mentioned in a previous blog post.
In my first sessions with the Lucia No.3, the first patterns I noticed emerging were starbursts and rays of cuboidal images of blues, oranges, and reds, so that's where I started. Beginning by creating simple starburst patterns, rotating the starbursts and filling each in with more rays. I then tried platonic solids on rays, and repeated and extended the patterns that resulted. That led me to using sacred geometric designs and repeating their patterns in different arrangements, sizes, and opacities. I began trying to replicate what I was doing by using specialized software I found that would allow me to enter the number of points, recursion depth, ratios, angles, radius, opacity, color, repetition data, etc. What you see below are my favorites selected from hours and days of attempts.
I've always created art for myself. I say I would like to sell my art, but seldom do and have found myself discouraging and blocking people from purchasing it. These were up in my office for a short while before a client decided they would look better in her yoga room. She continued to say she wanted them and I finally conceded. I think I'll print another set as they became welcome focal points for me when doing afternoon meditations and during hands-on healing work. I'm thrilled that people are enjoying the art I love to create.
Consider a Second Look
Sometimes an elephant is just an elephant. Often the magic wonder, and beauty that exists becomes more evident when we are able to set aside our expectations and moderate the contextual sorting our mind is so fond of and proficient with.
How aware are we in our daily life? How do our perceptions, perspectives, and interpretations of subtleties impact how we view the world around and within us? Sometimes an elephant is much more than an elephant.
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.

We were invited to share the Lucia No.3 Lucid Light to the 2016 Natural Universe Fitness Super Show that was held at the Travis County Expo Center in Austin, TX. We received a very warm welcome from the competitors, their fans, and the vendors. It was the most conscious body building event any of us had previously been witness to. Plus, the raw vegan fare served to all who came was really fantastic!! This is an event we likely won't miss in the future.
The Natural Universe Show was a true Keep Austin Weird kind of event with no alcohol, but plenty of cold coconut water. It included a film festival, a poker tournament, a yoga exhibition, acro-yoga lessons, and there was a charity poker tournament hosted by Andrew "Lucky Chewy" Lichtenberger, a conscious young man with a heart for humanity. I don't know that I've used terms like that to describe a poker player before.
I may have gotten a little carried away with effects when creating our recap video, but you'll get the idea:
