In a time when social media is the main staple that holds a person's life together, more and more people are looking to just unplug. Sometimes I feel like I just need to get away from all of it and center myself again. My mom has been in town visiting from NY, and I wanted to treat her to some nice relaxation time too.
Maybe you have heard about the deprivation chamber or maybe you haven't. Man, that sounds really scary! Basically, you are getting into a 4X7 "tank" that is filled with about 10 inches of salt water. I think it is something like 100,000lbs of epsom salt in there.
So there you are...in a tank that you are supposed to shut the door and effectively be in the pitch black! There is no light or sound, as it is sound and lightproof. The water is the same temperature of your skin, so once you get settled, you can't even tell that you are in water. It just feels like you are suspended in air, drifting off on a cloud.
The idea is the deprivation to your body allows your brain to slip into theta state. While I was shut of from the outside world, that didn't necessarily mean I was shut off from the lwa. What a great time to get some guidance! No distraction other than the input you are getting!
I highly recommend that everyone give this a try! It is refreshing for the body, mind, and soul! I also knocked out some great adjunct work that night and slept like a baby!
Love and Light,
