Berkeley Souza

I tried Lumiate to help with anxiety and distraction outside of the office. In part because it goes to work while I work, Lumiate is the first meditation app that I have used consistently.

Athina Schmidt

For me, mindfulness equals productivity. For my job, I have to live on the internet and social media; distraction is just a part of the equation. Lumiate has been a gentle reminder that has kept me mindful. Even on Twitter!

Cycle FAQ

Wouldn't it distract me?

The Cycle is constant and gentle. Once you know what it is, it stops alerting you. Thanks to perceptual adaptation, you'll see your screen "normally."

Still, we've found that different people prefer different strengths. You'll always be able to find the intensity of your liking.

How does it help me focus?

According to leading theories of attention, our attention capacity is limited, but that capacity must be filled. If your task isn't occupying the full capacity, you pick up distractions. The Cycle fills empty space so distractions don't reach your attention.

How can it assist meditation?

Most people are familiar with following the flow of the breath to anchor themselves to the present. This is called "anchoring inside," but you can also "anchor outside," to the flow of the Cycle. You can do it effectively at any time after your first guided meditation.

The people behind Lumiate

"Mindfulness is critical to combat the digital distractions which threaten to lower our attention-span and undermine our mental health. But people often do not have the time to sit alone and practice meditation. Lumiate’s new form of light-guided meditation works in the computer background to help keep the mind calm and focused."

Gregory Seton, PhD

Greg received his PhD from the University of Oxford and teaches Meditation Theory at Dartmouth College.

"As a lifelong meditator, I was surprised at how much the Cycle enhanced my mindfulness as I work. Every time I notice the effect, I breathe deeper and relax. It’s great being able to infuse my work day with mindfulness."

Markus studied psychology at Michigan. A life-long practitioner of Buddhist and yoga meditation traditions, he adds an attuned perspective to the Lumiate in-app experience.

Markus Stobbs

"I always found meditation rewarding but found it difficult to practice when I needed it most. Studying under Dr. Seton while pursing an economics degree  inspired me to create something both mentally rewarding and practical."

James studied Economics at Dartmouth College, inventing the Cycle to make mindfulness therapy easy and efficient.
