My Life-Changing Experience In A Sensory Deprivation Tank

My Life-Changing Experience In A Sensory Deprivation Tank

You float in complete darkness and silence for 1-2 hours. It’s the most relaxing experience I’ve ever had, but what blows my mind is that relaxation is not limited to your time in the pod. It follows you home.

Taking Time To Heal

Taking Time To Heal

You know those days where you feel fragile, where you've been stretched too far too fast and you're frantically trying to hold it all together while doing a million things, but it all breaks apart anyway? That was me last night, in tears and feeling defeated as I walked into Healing One to float. Hugs from your friends are incredibly healing, but hugs coupled with a float is the ultimate feel good prescription, I am now convinced.

After Facilitating Over 26,000 Floats…The Hard Truth I’ve Learned About Float Tanks

After Facilitating Over 26,000 Floats…The Hard Truth I’ve Learned About Float Tanks

One of the most important realizations I’ve had in a float tank is, that floating is ALL about the individual! We’ve all heard the phrase,“Only boring people get bored,” this is most definitely true about our time spent in the void. The float tank is an inanimate object; the pitch-black environment doesn’t care how hard my workweek was. The 900 lbs. of Epsom salts is completely indifferent to what my significant other/boss/friend/co-worker said or didn’t say.  And when I close the hatch, the tank isn’t smirking about how it’s captured another self-proclaimed claustrophobic person. After facilitating over 26,000 floats, I can safely say most people who thought they would be claustrophobic, actually have no problem being inside a float tank.

How I Learned to Lucid Dream When I Float.

How I Learned to Lucid Dream When I Float.

My floats tend to be very visual in nature. Sometimes I am overcome with waves of emotions, other times I am able to enter into a lucid dreamstate and explore the vastness of my mindscape and sometimes my mind just rants, raves and yells at itself.

I've been obsessed with sensory deprivation tanks for about a decade now. Throughout my time in university, I was lucky enough to have amazing professors who allowed me to research them as my theses, which greatly added to my theoretical knowledge of floating.

Until Float House Vancouver opened, I was only able to float sporadically, once or twice a year and more often than not, I would enhance this experience with psychedelic substances, going for extended lengths of time, inducing intense and personalized Sacred Ecstatic Experiences full of religious imagery. Now that I float on a more regular basis, I have learned how to include it as a constant practice and have seen how it has changed many aspects of my life.
