Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and often achieves very little, because to clear the mind demands much willpower and practice, and it generally takes many years. But the modern flotation tank allows a person to easily reach deep trance and meditation as the tank completely removes input from all the senses. My guest is Tim Strudwick, the MD of Float Works http://floatworks.com/ who run of the largest floatation centre in the world, and also make the floatation machines. www.i-sopod.com
Floating in these tanks is a strange sensation, but it is used to reduce stress and to enhance the power of hypnotism. Standard hypnotic procedures may be much more powerful when given in a floatation tank – also some people report having had an extatic enlightenment experience, which can often change a person’s view of the world – permanently.
