The Reality of Working at a Float Center: Lessons of An Internship at Art of Floating

0

I remember the first time I floated, I had heard about it thru a friend who had listened to a podcast by Joe Rogan. I told myself I have to try this and went to task looking up float centers on the Internet in my area. That was 5 years ago, back then tank centers were few and far between. …

Welcome! In this edition we are looking at what it takes to own and run a successful Float Center. It is much more involved than meets the eye or what many people believe it to be.

More Than An Internship

written by Terri Stangl, Quantum Floats, Bedminster, NJ — I recently had a two-week residential internship at Art of Floating (AOF) in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. I ran a small float center in Michigan for several years by myself so I thought I knew how to run a float center. I was curious to see what it was like to be in …

Barrier to Entry

0

There is a business concept called Barrier to Entry that seems to have escaped the attention of many in the Float Industry. It is not a common concept but one that should be considered carefully. Investors certainly consider Barrier to Entry when they are considering a start up of any variety. But the Float Industry really has no such Barrier …

Welcome to the August edition of the Mental Arts newsletter…As human beings we seem to have a tendency towards embracing what’s comfortable or what’s known, sometimes even digging our heels in and saying “well, that’s the way things have always been”. In doing so though, creates a limit…it limits the joy within our lives and limits what we can accomplish …

Defeating Self-Importance

0

Defeating self-importance is work. As Castaneda said, “Self-importance is our greatest enemy. Think about it – what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of our fellow men.” Self-importance affects us by keeping us from achieving raises, getting along with mom, telling those we love that we love them and on and on. Now this is the kind of …

The Workings of the Mind

Lily said,” The mind is defined as the sum total of all the programs and the metaprograms of a given human computer, whether or not they are immediately elicitable, detectable, and visibly operational to the self or to others.” This is an idea we have to consider very carefully when we work in a tank office. First, the statement suggests that …

Building Blocks of Thought

I always hear people talking about how they’re all so careful about people coming out of the tank. They “protect” them by not talking to them, they say. This is especially prevalent in the New Age/It’s all good crowd. They’re not going to impose their will on no one, you see. But that isn’t the actual problem in a tank center. The actual …

Float Center Etiquette

Back in the first days of public floating no one really knew what floating was about.  Much less what effects floating would really have, not for the client and especially not for the float operator. Lilly didn’t even know.  He spent his time in self examination, not in listening to people resolve their coalition conflicts.  However, that does not mean …

Good Intentions

The Reason We Must Talk To Floaters

Lilly said, “Encounters with other persons in the real world are much more powerful in terms of modifications of programs than either psychoanalysis or self-analysis. For example learning through sexual intercourse cannot be given through the verbal/vocal mode.” He also stated, “The isolated solitudinous individual does not have a present coalition to work on, in, or with. He projects past …
