The Mind Stage: Highlights


The MIND Stage at Noisily is where you go to get your synapses firing on all cylinders, and in 2021 after a fallow year, we have curated a line up of ingenious experts and global thought leaders to inspire, inform, motivate and engage your mind and stimulate curiosity. This year in the Coney Woods you will be treated to a veritable smorgasbord of neurologically tantalising discourse. 

Here’s some highlights of what you can expect…

1. Transpersonal Experiences Through the Power of Dance 

Helene Su will be talking about transpersonal experiences brought on through the power of dance, drawing on the wisdom of ancient cultures, and the findings of modern day quantum physics. So before you head down to the forest floor to cut some shapes, make sure to swot up to ensure you have a transpersonal experience of your own!

2. The Story of Lumenate App, and How to Reach an Altered State of Consciousness Using Just your Phone Flashlight

Join Jay and Tom Founders of Lumenate, two friends who used to work as Far Future Concept Designers at Jaguar Landrover before quitting their jobs, driving from Canada to Chile, walking the entire length of New Zealand, then buying an EEG brain scanner to trial different techniques to naturally induce altered states of consciousness. 

They have since developed the Lumenate App which uses research-backed stroboscopic light sequences from your phone’s flashlight to neurologically guide you into an altered state of consciousness between that of deep meditation and classic psychedelics.

It promises to be a very inspiring talk about their experiences and the apps development during lockdown.

His research focuses on transpersonal experiences, anomalous phenomena and altered states of consciousness, especially via psychedelics. 

At Noisily he’ll be delivering a talk about nurturing eco-consciousness through plant medicines.

5. Beyond the Matrix : Is this reality we live in an illusion? with Ann Mathie

In this talk, Ann Mathie will be looking at what the Buddha discovered under the Bodhi tree which led to his radical freedom from suffering. We will explore the different types of deep ecstatic absorption or Jhanic states, and how these states are experienced in the mind-body based on the direct experience of long-term meditators and Buddhist monks. We will look at how the Buddhas’ different states of absorption lead to insight into the workings of this mind matrix.

6. Why Is Everyone Obsessed With Psychedelics All of a Sudden? A Panel discussion with Matt Shea, Amanda Feilding, Zoe Cormier, Dr Ros Watts and Ben Sessa

The UK is experiencing a psychedelic renaissance.

Young people in England and Wales are taking three times more LSD than they did five years ago, scientists at top universities are claiming hallucinogens can revolutionise how we treat mental illness and the use of magic mushrooms has been increasing by around 40 percent year on year.

What is making this new generation of drug takers so interested in self-transformation? And as the self-help trend grows, what happens when thousands of people start trying to solve their mental health problems themselves by taking powerful hallucinogens in unregulated settings?
