I was 18 years old in 1982, when I had my first float. The world of professional dance had chewed me up and spit me out and I had moved back home to regroup and try to figure out what to do with my life. Wandering on South Street with a friend, we came across a tank center and decided to try it.

In the tank, all the pain and confusion of the previous year swirled through my mind and swept away. Leaving me connected to my essential self - my creativity, my sense of being a healer, my desire and skill at connecting with people. I didn’t get a clear pict...

Hi my name is Charles and I tried floating for the first time this past September. 

I have always done massage, acupuncture and a little standing meditation. I had known about floating for a few years but I took the chance knowing that I was ready for a new restorative and adding another channel to my wellness.

I remember in high school I suffered from back spasms so strong...

As children, we establish our definition of safety, and of happiness. Because our frame of reference for the harsh realities of life is limited, we also establish a rich and colorful dream world. In this place, our imaginations run wild. No idea seems wrong, and our potential is limitless.

Do you recall a dream from your childhood; one so powerful that you revisited it night after night? I certainly did. I used to dream that I had the ability to fly. 

My fascination with the idea of effortlessly lifting off the ground to float above the clouds probably...

About twenty years ago I worked with this guy Thom R. He was the first person I knew, who also knew, about sensory deprivation in a float tank. We would talk about expanding our consciousness in different ways while restoring stained glass windows. Taking drugs, meditation, sensory deprivation, exercise and things like that. He thought about building his own tank and he really instilled in me the desire to try it for myself. It always seemed a bit far out, and I never thought I would be able to experience it. Floating for myself became a mythology to...
