Sensory deprivation and isolation environments have long been used by people to explore their minds.
Floating developed from the mind of a neuroscientist,
John C Lilly, the creator of the original floatation tank, was a neuroscientist. He was interested in what floating can do for the mind:
“From a neurophysiological standpoint, one has immediately freed up very large masses of neurons from the necessity of constant computations”
He discovered that the freedom from stimuli we experience when we’re floating allows us to explore the nature of our consciousness.
Free from anxiety, in a deep state of mindful relaxation we can also tap into creativity. Many of our customers say they experience ‘Eureka moments’ during their sessions.
Joe Rogan, one of today’s best-known advocates of floating, says floating is: “The most important tool I have ever used for developing my mind, for thinking, for evolving.”
In the moments of pure awareness we experience in the float pod, free from all stress and distraction, consciousness exploration becomes possible.
