The Lucia No.3 is a neurostimulator, which combines flashing and constant light to stimulate temporary EEG brain wave patterns that help users achieve a hypnagogic trance. Hypnagogia is the semi-conscious state where the mind runs free, offering wild visions along with glimpses of lucidity into your thoughts, feelings and life.

During a session, you sit or lay facing the Lucia No.3, close your eyes, breathe and relax. That's it.  The white light passes through your closed eyelids and to the pineal gland, often referred to as the "third eye", which is stimulated to produce mind-activating hormones.  The activation of this "third eye" creates a completely unique visual experience that is entirely the result of your own consciousness. Listening to music can also enhance the experience as the mind combines the two stimuli, generating synesthesia – the experience of seeing music.

Music has the ability to shape your experience, and we encourage our light travelers to bring their own.


"Wow. That was incredible" 
"I feel so relaxed. I could just feel the tension releasing from my shoulders during the experience. Thank you!"
"I saw colors I have never seen before!" 
"That all came from white light? That was incredible!"
"It's like I found peace with the light. I just felt like everything will be OK."

As the pineal gland is activated, your mind will create NeuroArt - an amazing visual experience that may include vivid colors, sacred geometry, and synesthesia. 

Faced with the artistry of ones inner consciousness, those who experience the light tend to re-evaluate their current perceptions and perspectives. Whether you wish to step out of the fight or flight paradigm of our daily world, to augment a meditation practice, to experience your mind's inner light show, to find a more connected space of peace within; you will likely find something you appreciate about our service. Every session under the light is a completely unique experience--even if the frequency, intensity settings and music are unchanged.

The Lucia No.3 offers the benefits of deep meditation through accessing an expanded state of consciousness almost immediately.  This transcendental experience is usually only seen under extreme conditions such as high performance sport, entheogenic substances, transcendental meditation, or in near-death experiences. Activation of this state of consciousness through use of the light machine can trigger the same positive effects as the extreme conditions that most people will never experience otherwise. 

With a series of regular sessions on the Lucia No.3 light machine, you can literally train your brain to reach this optimal state at will.  Even after one session it is easier to drop into a state of deep meditation, since your brain now knows where it's going.

Dr. Dirk Proeckl is a neurologist and psychologist with his own medical practice in Wörgl.Tirol, Austria. He focuses on the interaction between the psyche and the nervous system and has studied psychosomatic rehabilitation of migraines, the distribution of neurotransmitters within the central nervous system, and the epileptic potentials in the electroencephalogram.

Dr. Engelbert Winkler is 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 counseling 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.

At the age of 7, Dr Winkler had a transformative near death experience (NDE). This led him to extensively research NDE phenomena analyzing the principals of shamanic, meditative, and esoteric traditions.  Inspired by his research, he worked with Dr. Proekl to create this technology, the Lucia No.3, to assist in awakening the consciousness of humanity.
In recent years the doctors have been collaborating on the topic of optimizing their methods within the Hypnagogic Light Experience with the Lucia No.3 and expanding their knowledge of resulting neurophysiological and psychological processes (including the implications for understanding synesthesia).

An interview with Dr. Dirk Proeckl and Dr. Engelbert Winkler at the Friends Stansted hall in Stansted, United Kingdom. 19th January 2013 Dr. Proeckl is a consultant neurologist with his own practice in Austria. Likewise Dr. Winkler has a PhD in psychology and is also a consultant.

The Lucia No.3 is completely safe for the eyes as the eyelids are closed.  It is only contra-indicated for those with light-sensitive epilepsy due to its stroboscopic function. Those who are pregnant and/or those under 18 are currently not advised to experience the Lucia  No.3

PLEASE NOTE: the Lucia No.3 is a powerful brain entrainment tool. DO NOT combine with other brain entrainments (such as binaural beats)

*Please consult your healthcare provider prior to your session if you are taking any medications or have concerns. 
**A hypnagogic light experience is neither medicine nor psychotherapy.
