At the core of Experiment with Light practice is a guided meditation that can be practised in a group or on your own. Different versions of Light meditations are available, catering for different tastes and different kinds of focus. They all share the same process. The suggested timings for the length of silence between each prompt of the meditations are 5, 6, 7, 7, 6, 5 minutes. The pauses could be longer than this if you wish, or a minute or two shorter if needed.

There is a wide choice of meditations that you can access either on this page or from our Android or Apple apps.
