Artist Program is back for 2019!
We love doing Artist Programs, and this year we’re back to the visual arts. If you’re a painter, illustrator, or sculptor, we invite you to participate in our fourth annual Artist Program project. Float three times for free, with the understanding that after the second float you’ll start an art project and finish it within one month. We think you’ll be amazed at everything your mind creates when you eliminate the distractions of the outside world.
For more information and to sign up, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org

The media has been full of floating this month! Some great articles.
“In the Tank”, The Nation: “Some of sensory deprivation’s sublime attraction seems to lie in the way it fortifies the floater against the perceived harm of twenty-first-century culture.”
“Floating into Hoop Flow”, hooping.org: Katelyn Selanders lost touch with her art, and got it back in the tank. “As she continued to float, the feeling of Hoop Joy swept over her, that magic energy you feel when the hoop beats rhythmically across your core, when you shoot it off your body up into the sky like a shooting star, and when you break the hoop against the beat and don’t know or care what your next move is going to be. Without even being aware of it, she had floated back into her flow.”
“Why Yogis Should Try Isolation Tanks”, My Yoga Online: “Pratyahara [withdrawal of the senses] is considered by BKS Iyengar to be the ‘hinge’ or pivotal point in the yogic journey, because it is the step where we move from our behaviors and action in the outside world, to diving deep within in order to ‘gain knowledge of the self’.”
