While it is tempting to resist mental noise, we made the suggestion that you practice acceptance instead. For instance, if during your float, your mind… Continue reading

  • Assumptions about Mental Chatter and Floating

    “If I want to have a positive floating experience, then my mind needs to be completely quiet…90-minutes! How can I shut off my mind for that long?
