1. History, 2. Theory and 3. Applicability/Methodology of Floating,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Book of Floating: Exploring the Private Sea (Consciousness Classics) (Taschenbuch)
The floating tank is often referred to as a tool to tap into the unconscious level of the mind/body phenomenon and it has led me to become aware of subtle changes of it. In this extraordinary book you are going to get information on how the floating tank was developed, what a floating tank is, what it does. You are going to read about numerous studies showing that and how the relaxation response (instead of the fight-or-flight-response) is being triggered by entering the floating tank, a device enabling you to abandon the world of gravity for a period of time.
When it comes to talk about one's experience in the tank though, explanations only go so far... one has to actually enter the tank. When one does, there can be a unique sense of mental alertness combined with the feeling of deep relaxation so that you are on "the interface between the infinite and the present space and time." (190) This state correlates with the brain indicating theta waves, i.e. long, synchronous brain waves conducive to deep relaxation and mental imagery, along with increased left/right hemisphere as well as vertical brain communication and control of the parasympathetic nervous system (the visceral brain) so that a new communication with oneself can emerge that is able to transform negative patterns of thinking and acting.
The tank is meant to be invented for everyone who is interested in exploring the private sea, the vast regions of the unconscious, decreasing muscle tension, ameliorating chronic back pain by releasing the spinal column from the constant pull of gravity... also for athletes who want to have a 'gravity break' and thus, speeding up recovery enormously while training to increase peak performance by visualisation techniques, decreasing oxygen consumption as well as rapidly reducing lactic acid concentration in the blood and muscles... for people who simply and effortlessly would like to lose weight, gain strength, support healing processes, get access to mind/body-traumata and accelerate the healing of them... for and kind of person who wants to increase his/her tolerance for stress, decrease automatic responses and get rid of habits and addictions, acquire a happier attitude towards life by increased levels of endorphins, heighten his/her sensitivity in order to understand the nature of the mind/body-complex in a new way, stabilise the immune system or improve IQ, learning, memory and concentration. It goes without saying that this is the ideal tool for meditative and contemplative practice.
