Floating IS the ultimate ally!
"As we look for ways to balance the constant attention of external influences that are firing our limbic systems into chaos, floating brings us back into a state of homeostasis and to ourselves with the ability to see our truth through the eye at the center of all the noise.
You can't side step the path of mastery...you still have to do the work. While it is true that personal mastery is largely self-directed and determined, we are occasionally offered the available tools to use as powerful allies along the process of becoming masterful." ~ Dr. Dan Engle (Floating - the Ultimate Ally)
Simply stated floating is a practice, an access point or invitation to go withing; to find your own answers; to trust the innate wisdom of the body; to self explore; to find meaning and self love.
Developing a relationship with it will change your relationship with self. You learn to hold yourself in a way that is secure when you have a sanctuary that is untouchable. Give curiosity the lead to participate in your experiments, building a relationship with the direct experience and engaging with the mystery awaiting just beyond the external layer.
" Don't linger in the doorway" ~ John C Lilly (Father for Floating)

How Floating Works...
The density of the salt water puts the floater in an environment where about 80% of the gravity we usually feel is no longer affecting the body due to the 1000lbs of Epsom Salts in the water.
We use a large portion of our mental and physical resources counteracting the force of gravity and the relief of this effort leaves our body with a surplus of energy and processing power at its disposal. Without this “gravity tax” our body focuses its energies on resting, recuperating and healing anything that needs attention and gives space for self exploration in the mind and heart.
Floating is an environment that reduces sensory input and stress to the body (reduced gravity, no lights, no sound, water is at body temperature) and enhances self awareness, connection, and healing.
We harmonize the float environment to our own personal frequency, so the information we receive is from our heart and ourselves.
There is a direct dynamic connection between the heart and our brainwaves. While floating, we can enter a similar state to meditation, flow state, shamanic journeying that occurs with theta brainwaves.
This is the brainwaves where we have access to the full spectrum of possibilities, it's limitless and unedited. It's the space of our dreams and secret asks to the universe. It is a direct understanding of what we are choosing to call in, what we want to It is a space of honoring where we are at with perspective through a purer lens ...this is the coherence of the heart.
It is the combination of these elements that creates the benefits of floating.
The best way to approach floating...Curiosity, Experiment, Explore
Is floating proven by science?
By floating you are participating in YOUR science.
Experimental process of floating:
Make space for curiosity, participate in the experiment , build a relationship with the direct experience and engage with the mystery awaiting just beyond the external layer. Your experiences will become one of mastery instead of novelty; one of artistry rather than skepticism. The results are felt and they are YOURS! And this is a much more meaningful experience.
How does floating show up for you? How are you showing up for your float? Do you have an intention?
The practice of floating is limitless, just as you are. What do you want to know about yourself? What do you want to sit with in contemplation? What are you ready to reflect on? What do you want to let go of? What do you want to call in?
How can you apply other personal practices to floating to deepen your experience? How can you apply your float experience to your life?
Floating is a practice.
Create your own.
Creating a symbiotic partnership with your float space, will take you deeper into your relationship to your experience. Fostering care and respect for the float environment can be part of the gateway to self and the art of floating.
There is a great opportunity to be present to your float session with intention...allow yourself to step into your own universe and surrender.
One of our favorite techniques is to consciously "open" and "close" your space. This is a ritual of intentionally opening to your experience and stepping into the sensation of the present moment.
It is creating an environment for exploration that differs from everyday routine. This could be with a thought, an intention on the board, using the intentional salt, a shower routine, etc.
At the end of your float it is important to "close" your session by energetically bringing all your pieces back to you, integrating your float bring yourself back by deeply breathing and coming into your present moment with mindfulness.
We love our tank so much, it has a name. Truly authentic to the traditional space of sensory deprivation.
Samadhi refers to the highest stage in meditation, in which a person experiences oneness with the universe. The float tank allows us to look at things through a different perspective and mirrors it back to us to see the other side.
Sam's water medicine is silence and clarity in the dark. A deep connection to insights that guides healing through expanding consciousness. It is simple and that is it's wisdom.

Guardian of the salty cosmos at The ForRest
After a decade of running a float studio, I’ve witnessed A LOT of floats and what makes a profound environment for healing and connection. With just over 10,000 hosted floats and humbly over 10,000 personal minutes in the float tank, my desire to hold a pure experience in a way the supports the spaciousness for the experience to unfold with you
Floating found me a decade ago when float tanks were still very much underground. My first float was that moment where life as I once knew it, would never be the same. I quit my career I loved of over 20 years in the Sport industy to follow the not-so-subtle call of the float tank and the awe inspiring landscape of self discovery. Fueled by raw passion and a few incredible humans on the same path, we started up an international not-for-profit to support the emerging community across the globe and to way-find, in collaboration, the rebirth of floatation therapy in 2013...above ground. This lead to the birth of One Love Float, the predecessor to The Forrest.
Love note to Water: Thank you for teaching me about trust, intuition, fluidity, pathways of resistance, sacred containers, conception and creativity.
Thank you for gifting me the incubator of experiences within the float center, the connection to community, and how to transition through states of being.
