Rediscovery Of “Floatation Tanks”

Posted in Miscellaneous on September 20th, 2011by Robert Scheinfeld

Years ago, I used what are called “Flotation Tanks” or “Sensory Deprivation Tanks” in New York City and Phoenix. Then I moved and tanks weren’t available to me.

I re-discovered them a year ago, when a Flotation Center opened in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. But then that Center moved to another city. So, since I loved the experience, I recently got my own tank.

The idea is if you can turn off or dramatically reduce all sensory input (sounds, images, sensations, etc.), it’s possible to have a wide variety of expansive experiences. That’s a quick summary only. See below for more detail.

I’m loving having easy access to the tank and I use it almost every day when I’m home. While floating, I experience what could be called “deep relaxation” and “expanded states” and also a tremendous flow of creative ideas in it. It’s super cool.

I also used it as an example and pointer towards Truth in the Being In Truth Experience I used to offer.

I have the tank at my office which I now call my “Creative Space.” Here’s a picture of it:
