Event description

Description

Your chance to experience transcendence, to observe the transformative state, to know, for yourself, what a truly meditative state feels like.

'Hypnagogia' is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. Mental phenomena that occur during this "threshold consciousness" phase include lucid thought, lucid dreaming, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis.

The 'Lucia No. 03' is a groundbreaking device created by Dr. Dirk Proeckl and Dr Engelbert Winkler that allows you to experience a deeply meditative, out-of-body-like state in the space of just a few minutes. Even if you've never meditated, taken Psychedelics or reached any memorable state of higher consciousness, the Lucia no. 03, aided by carefully selected music, will get you there almost instantly.

This event is your chance to try it.

How does it work? By shining white light in front of your closed eyes -- that is it. Your brain does the rest: the colourless LED light passes through your eyelids, past the retina and to the pineal gland; here your brain produces harmonic wave patterns that are similar to those produced in an intense meditative state. The result? You'll see a kaleidoscope of colours, shapes and patterns, each revolving and morphing into new colours, shapes and patterns.

Music is used to enhance the experience: the mind combines the two stimuli, generating synesthesia – the experience of literally seeing music.

The reported benefits include:

  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Reduced fear and depression
  • Sense of wholeness/oneness
  • Increased sense of inner peace and emotional stability
  • Increased creativity
  • Increased intuition
  • Improved physical healing
  • More restful sleep

We are privileged to announce that joining us will be one of the makers of the Lucia, Dr. Engelbert Winkler -- a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist, and legal consultant for children and youth with his own practice in Wörgl, Tirol, Austria. He studied philosophy, pediatrics and psychology in Innsbruck, and completed further studies in existential analysis, hypnotherapy and other disciplines. In 1994 he founded a family counselling institute named Kooperative Familienberatung and is particularly interested in the neuronal basis and effects of Near Death Experience as well as the development of new uses of the Hypnagogic Light Experience.

He'll be discussing the development and science behind his creation, his reasons for building it , short and long-term benefits, Psychedelics and more. Joining him will be his colleague Mat Harvey, who'll be demonstrating -- and guiding those who want to try -- the Lucia No. 03.

As with all our talks, we'll end with an informal, relaxed QnA session.

Held at the delightful cafe Cherry Reds, this event has the potential to be our coolest yet. Entrance is only £5 and the talk will start about 7pm. The society will be there from 6.30pm, so if you want to get your seat early...

The main talk and QnA will go on until about 9pm, but we have the room until 11pm, so you're more than welcome to stick around, have a drink and talk about psychedelics, life, Hypnagogia, British politics and whatever else. This is also great opportunity to introduce yourself, meet the team and interact with other members.

You can find out more about the Lucia No. 03 at mountanalogue.co.uk, and you can see it in action on YouTube.
