Check out the 1980 film 'Altered States' on Viceland TV right now ! The science fiction cult classic is the reason behind our name. Floating was somewhat popular in the 80s after this film, but also scared people to never want to try it. In 2004 there were talks of a remake, I think now would be the right time to do so
Altered States, a collaboration between @caesarstoneca and @snarkitecture, is a can’t miss spectacle at @idstoronto! Focusing on the kitchen island - the icon of the modern home, this collaboration is a realistic and practical interpretation of Caesarstone, one that looks at the functionality of the kitchen, while drawing from Snarkitecture’s signature blend of architecture and art.
The Psychedelic Guide to Preparation of the Eucharist is the work of the fascinating if farcical Neo-American Church, which was founded in 1966 by Arthur Kleps at Timothy Leary’s Millbrook house. Kleps, who christened himself Chief Boo Hoo and was a belligerent believer in the power of acid, claimed that LSD was the sacrament for his church; when one of his “ministers” was put on trial for possession in 1968, he argued the Neo-American Church’s use of LSD should be protected by law just as peyote was with the Native American Church. They lost the case, partly because the judge felt that an organization that had “Row, Row Your Boat” as its main hymn could not be taken seriously. #alteredstates#juliosantodomingo#anthologyeditions
Float Therapy in this sensory deprivation tank today. Spent 90 minutes in this salty coffin. Water at 93.5 degrees, 10 inches deep, and having 1000 pounds of Epsom Salt in it so you float. This body temperature water capsule with no light, no sound and no gravity takes pressure off your body and mind, which is very relaxing and meditative. I love reaching altered states. I highly recommend you all try this someday. #sensorydeprivation#isolationtank#floattank#floating#meditation#relaxing#alteredstates
Come and discover your floatmap with me @riseabovefloatation 6:15-7:15! Learn how to access different parts of the mind and enter altered states at will! All of this free of charge because I love you all.
The Wild Genie: The healing power of menstruation. We need to talk about menstruation. Menstruation is not a curse, it’s a beautiful gift. It’s nature’s way to remind us that we have a cyclical body in tuned to natures cycles of creation and destruction to give place to recreation. I read this book a long time ago and I am holding on to it for my beautiful daughter. I promised her spirit to give her a beautiful ritual to celebrate her transition into becoming a woman. I used to have negative feelings about my menstruation. I hated dealing with the raw intense emotions that made me feel crazy, bitchy and sensitive. I used to hate the pain, the insomnia, the lack of energy and the feeling of being high and fuzzy minded... This book and others such as the “Red Tent” by Anita Deimante, made me completely change my perspective and ways of thinking about my period. It’s that one time of the month that my sensitivity and consciousness are so heightened I can create my most significant art works. I go deep within myself and I can listen to my higher-self because I’m experiencing an altered state of consciousness. All of us women are. I don’t take painkillers, but hot, essential oil, infused baths. I carry around my hot water bottle, dress comfortably and buy good quality chocolate and tea. I stay home in my cave. I’m known for cancelling my plans. I take good care of myself. I’m lucky to be self employed so I just create my own retreat and rituals and usually channel all those raw emotions into ART. We are blessed to have a monthly reminder to rest and renew ourselves and to make it our sacred Red Tent time. #redtent#thewildgenie#alexandrapope#menstruation#period#alteredstates#divinefeminine#feminism#book#bookstagram#pussypower#womanhood#ritual#wildwoman#womanscircle#wombblessing#women#womenempowerment#consciousness
