About the Lucia N°03

The Lucia N°03 gently entrains the brain, stimulates the pineal gland and opens up a beautiful space for visionary exploration. The Lucia N°03 helps clear the mind and allow even beginning meditators to reach a space of peace quickly. It is not a replacement for a meditation practice but quite the opposite - it encourages people to meditate by realizing how powerful the practice can be and gives them the confidence (and roadmap) to get there on their own. As the Lucia is both a stimulation (through light), and a relaxation (through brain entrainment), it helps the individual learn to let go in stressful situations, rather than resist and make things even more difficult. The Lucia N°03 also uses a wide spectrum of light which has been reported to have a great impact for people with both seasonal affective disorder and other types of depression.

As our energetic system is so deeply intertwined, of course the Lucia does more than simply work with the mind and ajna chakra. We are beings of light and all of our cells communicate through light (this is just being confirmed now by molecular biologists). The Lucia N°03 activates this light system and it spreads through the body, moving energy along the nadis, clearing blocks and lighting up the whole system. We are currently offering light for the different chakras as well, especially the heart and and solar plexus. For those who are can feel energy, this is quite an experience!

The Lucia light experience is different for each person, as it works with each person's individual system and has a balancing effect. The Lucia N°03 is a cosmic mirror that helps us look within to admire the unique beauty of our consciousness.

The Latent Properties of Light

Treat Your Building as a Patient - Cliff Yahnke

Course Description: This presentation will describe the role of the environment in Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAI’s). It will specifically focus on the Operating Room and the concerns unique to that setting. Methods for improving environmental hygiene will be reviewed with attention given to a new class of solution whole room disinfection. The use of this solution in the Operating Room will be presented examining the relevant details between the two primary categories (continuous vs. episodic).

Learning Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will:

  1. Identify the types of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) and their collective impact upon the US healthcare system.
  2. Explain how infections can be acquired through the built environment.
  3. Describe the range of solutions to improve environmental hygiene which are available to healthcare providers.
  4. List the characteristics of specification-grade light fixtures that can reduce the spread of pathogens within the environment.
  5. Recognize the benefits of continuous environmental disinfection and the areas within a healthcare setting where it is best used.

 

The Latent Properties of Light- Abhay Wadhwa

Course Description: As we approach 2020, the lighting design and applications field has undergone a sea-change in technology options available to the design professional. Over the past 20 odd years, there has been tremendous rise in the understanding of light as a form of energy with latent properties that impact our health and well-being, besides providing light levels for visual acuity and reading. No longer are we discussing whether the fluorescent lamp flickers or CFL end-of-life problems, or color shifts in MH lamps. We are discussing biophilic design solutions, and usage of light to reduce stress and alleviate mental health issues, while designing with a better understanding of the disruptive harmonics and energy fields created by lighting controls. This course will cover many of the lesser spoken about topics in lighting, and help a design professional to truly harness the power of light.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will:

  1. Its not just about Footcandles anymore. Participants will be introduced to the newer terms like Circadian Stimulus,  EMF, and Biophilic Light Responses (BLRs).
  2. Participants will learn to isolate all components of the lighting system, and thereby get a better understanding of sympathetic interplay of components.
  3. Participants will learn how to reduce stress by using wavelengths and frequencies of light.
  4. Participants will also be introduced to Circadian Stimulus (CS) and how we can determine what is good amount of CS at what time.

A History of the Irish in Greenpoint: A talk by Geoffrey Cobb in association with the New York Irish History Roundtable

Gallery AWA presents a talk on Greenpoint’s Irish History. Although Greenpoint is largely known as a historically polish area, there all tell tale signs in the landscape that point to an Irish past - names like McGuinness Boulevard and McCarren park point to Greenpoint’s forgotten Irish history. Originally coming from Ireland to work in the docklands, Greenpoint once housed a substantial Irish working class community.

Hear stories about Irish American characters who shaped the landscape such as Greenpoint’s first family - the tug boat kings from Co. Antrim - the McAllister family and Peter McGuinness - the last Tammany Hall style ward boss - a beloved political figure who ruled Greenpoint for decades, as well as stories about legendary Irishmen and women such as revolutionary leader Thomas Clarke who lived in Greenpoint for a time before making their way home to Ireland.

The New York Irish History Roundtable is an organisation that promotes interest in and exploration of the 300-year history of people of Irish heritage in New York City, with a focus on discovering family history and encouraging historical understanding. Find out more about their events and work here http://www.irishnyhistory.org/

Gallery AWA is delighted to welcome back Geoffrey Cobb, who will be giving this talk. Mr. Cobb has been a history teacher in the New York City Public School system for more than two decades.  Presently teaching at the High School for Service and Learning on the famous Erasmus Hall campus, he is also a prominent local historian, walking tour guide and the author of two books; Greenpoint’s Forgotten Past - the first history of the area published in almost a century and The King of Greenpoint a biography of Irish American political leader Peter J. McGuinness. 

Listen to Geoffrey talk to Dr. Miriam Nyhan about Greenpoint’s Irish History on Glucksman Ireland House NYU Radio Hour here http://www.nyuirish.net/radiohour/

The Phantom Wall: The Pervasive Politics of Prejudice

Gallery AWA presents The Phantom Wall; The Pervasive Politics of Prejudice, an exhibition by Jorge Cruz in collaboration with AWA Lighting Designers. The opening reception will be Saturday October 7th, 6-8pm. 

The Phantom Wall is a wall made of light that represents the walls we carry inside our heads; it stands as a physical and ideological symbol of division and personal stagnation. Jorge Cruz and Gallery AWA are delighted to collaborate on realizing a physical representation and discursive space for a topic matter that is unfortunately of utmost social pertinence, and would like to invite the public to engage in this discussion upon The Phantom Wall’s opening.

MYSTIC MBIRA TRANCE - A ceremonial gathering
w/ mbira master, Chartwell Dutiro & friends

Shona mbira music from Zimbabwe is one of the most soulful sounds on the African continent. Mbira (the name of the instrument and the music) is mystical music which has been played for over a thousand years. Originally used in spirit possession ceremonies, the iron-pronged mbira, produces music, rhythmically charged enough to keep people dancing through all-night ceremonies. It is believed that the beauty of the music attracts the ancestors’ spirits. Join us for an evening of ceremonial mbira music, a gathering to connect us with our ancestors. Immerse yourself in Zimbabwean culture!

If you can talk
You can sing
If you can walk
You can dance
Or you just sit
And reflect to the intricate beauty of the music

Book Reading by Geoffrey Cobb

We are very excited to host a reading this Saturday from the new book 'The King of Greenpoint' by local Greenpoint author Geoffrey Cobb. 

About The Book:
Peter J. McGuinness (1888-1948) ran Greenpoint as the last Tammany Hall style ward boss in New York City. Never having attended high school, McGuinness started out life as a longshoreman and amateur boxer, but entered politics at the end of World War I because of his frustration with the local political machine. Elected Alderman in a shocking result, McGuinness became perhaps the most colorful legislator in the history of New York City law making. McGuinness endeared himself to his constituents through his legislative accomplishments, service, charity and above all amazing Joie de vivre and humor.

About the Author:
Geoffrey Cobb is a Brooklyn high school history teacher with more than two decades of experience. Mr. Cobb has lived in Greenpoint and studied its history for almost a quarter century. A licensed tour guide who gives local history walking tours, Mr. Cobb is also the author of the popular local blog: http://historicgreenpoint.wordpress.com

Deep Trance: Gong and Pandora Star

Gong and PandoraStar
Deep Immersion into Altered States of Consciousness

Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux, who created the term and experience of the *Gong Bath* more than 40 years ago, says "The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation, that's really what we want to bring out to the world. 
Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells and bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong or what the person listening needs. 
You feel an influx of energy coming from it in your body as well as hear it. This "musical touch" which actually turns the body into one big ear, creates a sense of ecstasy of well-being."

Within a few minutes, the PandoraStar Deep Trance Light Machine takes you to a 'Altered State of Consciousness', simulating the deep meditative state reached by Buddhist monks with decades of meditation practice. This 'Mind Journey' releases a small amount of DMT, creating Psychedelic experiences similar to taking Mushrooms, Ayahuasca or LSD

In this Event we will combine the powerful effects of vibrational sounds and Light for a deep immersion into an Altered State of Consciousness. Come explore your intimate connection with the wisdom of the Universe which resides within you.

Foresight is 20/20 by Jacob Liberman

Gallery AWA is honored to host an intimate afternoon with Dr. Jacob Liberman for his first talk in beautiful Brooklyn.

"Jacob Liberman is one of my favorite teachers"
- Louise Hay

"Dr. Liberman...shows with great clarity how light is profoundly capable of influencing the healing process...."
- Deepak Chopra, MD

"Wisdom From An Empty Mind by Dr. Jacob Liberman is a book you will want to revisit many times."
- Eckhart Tolle

Before giant waves slammed into Sri Lanka and India's coastlines December 2004, wild and domestic animals seemed to know what was about to happen, started screaming and fled to safety. As a result, when the waves hit, very few animals died — yet more than 150,000 people were killed. Experts believe that animals possess a "sixth sense," enabling them to recognize inclement danger long before humans do. But humans also possess this sixth sense. The only difference is that we have been taught to question what we “know” and trust what we “think.” We believe "hindsight is 20/20" because most of us become aware of things after the fact. But what if we’re designed to actually see things before they occur? What if foresight is 20/20? 

Dr. Jacob Liberman (www.jacobliberman.org) is a pioneer in the fields of light, vision, and consciousness, and author of Light: Medicine of the Future, Take Off Your Glasses and See and Wisdom From an Empty Mind. He has shared his discoveries and insights with more than 2,000 audiences worldwide, and has been endorsed by luminaries in the fields of health, science and spirituality including Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra and Bruce Lipton. Gary Zukav described Jacob's work as “deeply transformational," Jean Houston said it was "a manual for a whole new order of being” and Ram Dass said, “It was as if I was hearing my own voice…”

Sugar & Suffering: The North Brooklyn Chapter by Geoffrey Cobb

Sugar & Suffering: The North Brooklyn Chapter is a talk by Geoffrey Cobb on the impact of sugar refining in Brooklyn and the legacy it has left behind.

Geoffrey Cobb is a twenty-two year Greenpoint resident, high school social studies teacher and author of the first book on local history " Greenpoint Brooklyn's Forgotten Past."  In addition to leading local walking tours and blogging on Greenpoint history Mr. Cobb will shortly publish his second book" King of Greenpoint" on the life of local political legend Peter McGuinness. 

North Brooklyn was for many years the largest area of sugar refining in the world. Sugar refining altered the landscape as huge refineries sprung up along the East River. Sugar refining created great wealth, but also led to great suffering and violent strikes as the workers demanded better conditions. Sugar has a huge legacy in North Brooklyn, but the topic has not received the attention it is due.
