EMBRACE THE SPACE WITHIN

 

 After hosting thousands of floats for our community, it became evident that many people want to share what they found in our tanks; unpacking and integrating the events of a float session, whether by talking or simply by holding space, can be almost as crucial as the float itself. Discussing the experience can deepen and integrate the effects of floating so we are most happy to offer our new Inner Space Retreat, a package combining the benefits of floating and counselling.

The Retreat:

Following a 90-minute float in one of our state-of-the-art rooms, float calmly into our serene counselling space, where you can share an hour with our Masters level counsellor.

The space is confidential, nonjudgmental, and informed by cutting-edge counselling and psychotherapy. The counselling session can include:

  • Talking and integration
  • Mindfulness and guided meditation
  • Philosophical counselling
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and solution-focused counselling
    Inner Space Retreat
    • 90-minute float
    • 60-minute integration counselling
    • Get the combined benefits of both floating and counselling
    Individual Counselling
    • Private 60-minute counselling session with our Masters level counsellor
    • Work on specific issues or explore the past and the present

About Our Counsellor:

As a counsellor and psychotherapist in training, I aspire to develop a container that is safe and strong enough to hold space for any topic or issue. Informed by somatic therapy, philosophical counselling and Buddhist meditation, I offer post-float integrative counselling sessions for those who feel the need to talk about their float, work on specific issues, or just take the time before re-entering the world. No experience is too weird to talk about!

“I got to know Aron when he was study coordinator for the Phase 2 MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study in Vancouver.  He is a compassionate, caring man and has the skills and knowledge to assist people in integrating experiences of altered states of consciousness. I am pleased to recommend him to provide support when necessary after a float experience.”
