Earlier this year, we wrote about Lumonics, a light art collective that for decades has been providing trippy and possibly therapeutic light and sound art experiences for visitors. Some guests even claim to have had spiritual breakthroughs, past-life regressions or seen relatives who had passed while experiencing Lumonics performances.

Now, you can experience the magic of Lumonics yourself.
