I will be taking part in an event on Sunday 14th May in The House of Alchemy in central Brighton. The pop-up gallery is located in the heart of Brighton’s cultural quarter opposite Brighton Dome and Pavilion.
Sarah Janes presents a talk about Mnemosyne, a member of the illustrious ranks of Greek Goddesses. Mnemosyne (Memory) was conceived in a union between Ouranos and Gaia (Heaven and Earth). The power of Memory is the force that enables mortals to enter the unconscious, collect the treasures of the divine and bring them in to the light of day.
Luciana Haill invites participants to explore and measure their own brainwaves during this invocation of Mnemosyne using a classic Dreammachine and a PandoraStar hypnagogic light technology. She is concerned with esoteric ways of accessing the Visionary, using psychotronic and contemporary photic entrainment devices, perchance to dream, enter a Hypnagogic state, inducing dream-like visions, entoptics and journeys.
Sun 14 May, 7pm-10pm
Tickets available here :
£6.50 + b.f. in advance / £8.00 on the door

Free taster short sessions in front of PandoraStar guided by Luciana, first come first served basis. This is a hypnagogic self guided experience where you can journey within and see your imagination without constraints, a light trance in time and space that provides a feeling of rejuvenation and self organisation of distracting or unresolved thoughts.You can sit in one of the comfortable upright chairs with the lamp 45cm away from your closed eyes, or if you prefer, 2 may lie on the floor with cushions and experience simultaneously. EEG recordings to see brainwave changes in repsonse to the light’s effects can also be made upon request.

Working with PandoraStar light entrainment device and making audio from analogue AutoHarps with digital Modular Synths in Ableton to enhance the journey, where consciousness dissolves, judgement fades and within closed eyes, beyond Psychedelic ‘entoptictals’, the antipodes of consciousness allow more of oneself to be revealed. I can’t recommend this powerful, PandoraStar enough, the flickering light guides your brain to experience a range of beneficial states of brainwave activity, which can be used for many empowering purposes. I will document my journey soon with EEG, illustrations and subjective reviews.
