The Hypnagogic Light Experience

Extreme situations – i.e. during a near-death experience,
in high-performance sports or deep meditation – can trigger physical or mental processes that lead to a realignment of the entire organism.

In this context, interdisciplinary research demonstrated as early as in the 1980s a noticeable increase in quality of life to the point of spontaneous healing. The persons concerned mentioned the encounter with a very bright light as the cause of these positive changes.


The Viennese neurologist and founder of logotherapy and existential analysis Viktor E. Frankl (1905-1997) described the spiritual dimension of the human being as an instance outside the range of illness.

The Hypnagogic Light experience “taps” into this source of health in the light.
