Inspired by psychedelic therapy, London-based Wavepaths aims to take your mind on a journey using just lights and music
A London-based wellness startup aims to use music and light to offer an experience similar to psychedelic therapy, but without the psychedelic drugs – or, strictly speaking, the therapy.
Wavepaths, which recently held a pop-up experience in East London, invites people to book sessions in its specially designed space, choosing from an hour-long guided session or a 30-minute unguided session. On entering the guided session, you meet a therapist in a white room lit by a coloured lighting installation designed for the space by musician and artist Brian Eno. After a briefing, the therapist leads you to an adjoining room with a squishy reclining chair. Speakers arranged in a 360-degree formation around the room play a music “soundscape”. Here, you are left to relax with your thoughts for 20-30 minutes, before having a debrief with your guide.
