Glenn Perry had a life changing experience when he floated in the tank* invented by Dr. John C. Lilly. "When I stepped out into the sunshine, nature was a scintillating, shimmering energy system and time moved very slowly.
I was asked to share my experience with the others in the workshop and for the first time in my life I had no fear talking.
I had to have one for myself and they were not being made by anyone.
I decided to produce them. That was the start of Lee's and my 48-year adventure." Lee and Glenn Perry created a new product, a new company and triggered a global industry.
Their book tracks the floatation industry and cultural movement from the seed of the Perrys' own experiences as floaters through the design, prototyping, manufacture, and distributing of float tanks to individuals and public float centers around the world.
They have changed not only their lives but the lives of many of those who float.
Included in the book are a selection of vivid personal narratives and photos from floaters showing the depth and breadth of these experiences. *The float tank is a little larger around than a twin sized bed and chest high.
It contains 10" of water with so much Epsom salts added, that when you get in and lie on your back, you are pushed to the surface so you float like a cork, weightless as an astronaut in space.
There is a lightweight door you can leave open, or if you want to get rid of the distractions of noise and light you can close the door.
It should be used however it is comfortable.
