Yeah... when you're in one it can be reminiscent of a coffin, which is why it was so uncomfortable at first.

I think in the US, Sensory Deprivation Tanks cost about $50-60 USD on average.

WASD: Yeah, I'm not sure if what I experienced was Samadhi, often when you come out of Samadhi you have an intense feeling of joy, and some people even cry. : / All I know is I don't remember half the time in there, but either way, it was very relaxing.

Enjoy yourself! Relax, have a good time, and share your experience! I look forward to it.

Wasn't as awesome as i expected. sadblauw The only cool feeling was when i first got there, "cool I'm floating!". I felt pressure on my shoulders or neck all the time, never found a comfort position, changed position a lot. Fully awake all the time. Was in there for an hour, felt like 45 minutes.
Was relaxed when I got out, about the same as after usual sleep.

But I recommend it. An hour was too much for the first time. Don't think I'll do it again within at least 5 years.

edit: Forgot to add that i had the lights on all the time... I thought they were so weak so it wouldn't matter, but i heard that it apparently does matter.

Thanks for the feedback man.
Hey, let me ask, do you practice any relaxation-techniques?
That might have a something to do with it...experience(not blaming you, just asking)

Well, I'll see when I'm going to get a chance...

I practice yoga on an almost daily basis... so that might have aided my ability to relax. But I agree, I was uncomfortable for a lot of the time (because I carry a lot of tension in my shoulders), try putting your arms behind your head (Eventually I relaxed when they were on my stomach). I think MENTALLY relaxing is almost more important than physically relaxing your body. One follows the other.

i think for a tank to be maximized is that you will need to have a meditation practice that caters to bringing in energy through mantra or visualization,

so that you are very strong in "the force" before you go in, so you can go right there

the laughing crow, you can buy a tank for $50-60 ?

No, I think you can buy a tank for a few hundred dollars... but a session is usually that price.
