Sensory Deprivation

dostl10 posted 11/16/2017 12:38 PM

I did a sensory deprivation pod today (float therapy). It was weird. First time I ever did it. One of the things that happened was the vision of my and WW relationship from the very start to where we are now. The day we met, things in between, when we got married (crystal clear like I was right there) watching her walk down the aisle, our kids being born, our whole life. Vividly right in front of me. :(

I'm curious about what your expectations were before hand. Were you given info about what to expect? Did it put you into a dream like state?

Why would you want to do that? I don't get it.

dostl10 posted 11/16/2017 19:51 PM

I had no expectations going in. It was really cool except that part. It was super relaxing. I don't think I hit the dream like state. It was my first time doing anything like that including meditation so it may take some practice. I would do it again though.

I wanted to do that but was afraid that I'd be trapped in there and have to go pee.

Haha. Just gotta make sure you go before. I was in 75 minutes. It felt like 5

do they let you out if you have to go? or is it locked?

No, it doesnít lock. And most have lights you can turn on if you want/need and a call button to intercom with the staff. Iíve known people who left the pod open because they were claustrophobic. Not quite sensory deprivation at that point, but they seemed to like it and get something out of it.

and if I farted in it, what would happen...?

Krystlebefore posted 11/16/2017 20:17 PM

would love to do that but i'm like NTV - even if i went 5 minutes before going in there i can guarantee i'd need to pee at some point my brain is like that...which then got me wondering how many people pee in it anyway.....and that's now put me off the whole thing...

Sounds fascinating, would love to try.

No sensations (touch, sight, sound, even gravity), except for your fart. Your fart would be the only thing in your world.

And Dost,

Iím happy to hear that you tried it and enjoyed most of it. I float a couple of times a year and almost every time is a unique experience.
I got into Rinzai Zen and Vipassana meditation a couple of months after DDay, and it has really helped my find ďpeace of mindĒ, in a way that I never thought possible.

Iím mostly a lurker, but iíve followed your posts and rooted for you since you landed here.
