I am using a (medical) bright light therapy lamp in the morning for 30 minutes during the darker months.
I have also been meditating for about 30 minutes a day.
I lately noticed myself almost reaching a meditative state during this activity anyway. So, I thought about combining the two.
The difference to meditation as I am used to would be that instead of sitting with my eyes closed, I would look at a really bright light (not harmful to the eyes), which usually blocks out everything else, visually speaking.
Has anyone tried this or can anybody offer thoughts on why or why not this is a good idea?
(The reason why I have not tried it yet was that I usually listen to a news broadcast programme of about 20 minutes during my bright light therapy.)
