A Dip into Sensory Deprivation
Like many people, I first learned about floating while browsing Joe Rogan’s podcasts on youtube. He describes the experience as “the most important tool I’ve ever used for developing my mind”. Well, that sold me. I immediately searched for floatation spas near me. No luck. It wasn’t until nearly two years later that I finally got my chance to float.
My attraction to floating was likely sparked by my interest in meditation. The ability to calm the mind, and focus on the present moment has always been skills I’ve tried to cultivate. Floating seemed like the perfect addition to my practice, and I was extremely excited to see how the two differed.
While every single one of my floats has been different, they all have something in common – I always come out feeling refreshed and happy that I set aside the time to be alone with myself and escape the distractions of everyday life. If floating sounds as intriguing to you as it did to me 2 years ago, I encourage you to stop by Pure Float and give it a go!
