Lumiate is a patented mindfulness system that helps you relax and focus while you use your computer. You can use all of your apps normally while you use Lumiate, lightening your workflow or deepening your meditation practice during downtime.

Mindfulness is critical to combat digital distractions

which threaten to lower our attention-spans and undermine our mental health. Lumiate’s new form of light-guided meditation works in the background to keep the mind calm and focused while you use your computer."

"As a lifelong meditator, I was surprised at how much the Cycle enhanced my mindfulness as I work. Every time I notice the effect, I breathe deeper and relax. It’s great being able to infuse my work day with mindfulness."

"I always found meditation rewarding but found it difficult to practice when I needed it most. Studying under Dr. Seton while pursing an economics degree  inspired me to create something both mentally rewarding and practical."

James studied Economics at Dartmouth College, inventing the Cycle to make mindfulness therapy easy and efficient.

Master meditation program for mindfulness and compassion

I use Lumiate when I'm looking to study, work, or just unwind. My ability to sustain focus has improved and I find that screen-time is less draining. Honestly, if you use a computer, you should give Lumiate a try.


I realize the importance of being mindful, but it's difficult in such a digital age. The pulsing light keeps me mindful during work, and Lumiate's meditations are the perfect break.


I tried Lumiate to help with anxiety and distraction outside of the office. Lumiate fades out of my awareness while I work but it reminds me to be mindful when I notice it. For the guided meditations, Lumiate is the first meditation app that I have used consistently.


I recently tried Lumiate and have enjoyed the benefits that meditation and mindfulness bring to my day. The software is super user friendly and customizable, allowing me to choose between different mindsets to run in the background, and I can access a library of guided meditations. I have seen great improvement in my ability to maintain balance and focus thanks to the program and am confident that anybody can have the same success as an amateur like me.



What it's like to use Lumiate


Let Lumiate increase focus

Lumiate gently pulses the hue of your entire screen while you do anything on your computer. As your brain adapts to see your screen normally, your task occupies more bandwidth, limiting the ability of distractions to reach your attention.
