Foundations of Floating: What every float operator needs to know
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
30 person capacity
Organized by Thomas H. Fine
The Floatation REST experience has been promoted widely as having numerous health benefits, including chronic pain reduction, stress management, performance enhancement, improved recovery from exertion, anxiety reduction and improved sleep. While many float operators know about these benefits, many have not had the opportunity to learn the basic science of Floatation’s effects. This workshop will provide a brief, but comprehensive, introduction to the science of the Floatation tank experience and its relationship to the long term effects. The session will begin with the physiology of the stress response system and its adaptation to the Floatation environment and proceed to the neuroscience and psychology of single and repeated floats sessions. The workshop will provide the connection between the science, the float experience and the positive benefits of Floating. The workshop will conclude with some basic principles, based on the science, for center/floater relationships to facilitate the success of the floaters experience.

Ceremonial Breathwork for Non-Ordinary States
3:00 – 5:00 pm
30 person capacity

Breathwork is another modality used to explore non-ordinary states of consciousness and is popular at our Tulsa Float Center and allows our clients another way to access some of those states that can be accessed in a float session.

Through conscious breathwork, ceremonial practices, and inward journeying, we’ll have both an individual and group experience. As you begin to trust your breath, the body is activated and the pathways to deep inner states open. In this safely-held container, the possibility exists to release stagnant energy of unhealed parts and outdated programming.

During these sessions, we infuse our bodies with oxygen and life force (prana). As we begin to trust the breath, our energy body is activated and the pathways to our deep inner work open. In this safe container, the possibility exists to release stagnant energy of unhealed parts and outdated programming. This energy activation can awaken us to possibilities that may have been hidden or repressed. When the channels or pathways are open we can receive information in a whole new way. It can enliven and connect us to source providing clarity, vision and inspiration or simply allow us to bliss out in a deeply altered state.

This practice if for you if you are ready to dive deep and explore the breath as a sacred ally for healing and wholeness, truth and expansion.

Participants can expect: Grounding and intention setting, guided meditation to connect body and breath; 60-75 minutes of circular breathing while listening to a customized playlist (three energetic waves) and integration. The session may include the use channeling, energy work, activations, flower essences or oils, sound therapy and more (each session varies depending on the group dynamics and individual processes) by two trained facilitators.

Come experience non-ordinary states of consciousness in a safe and healing environment and create an experience for yourself at the Float Conference.

Come tune into the Heart Space with a cup of cacao (raw, organic chocolate) and a group session with the Lucia N°03 Hypnagogic light.

A cacao ceremony is an intentional gathering to tune into and open the heart space through meditation, sound healing and in this case the Lucia N°03 light experience. Cacao is full of antioxidants and magnesium, as well as chromium, theobromine, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, vitaminC, omega-6 fatty acids, tryptophan, serotonin, and more. Theobromine in particularly special and unique as it has been shown to lower blood pressure, may help your teeth, boosts your energy levels and helps with receptivity and openness.

The Impact of TBI: From NHL Enforcer to Wellness Advocate
1:00 – 2:00 pm
50 person capacity
Organized by BodyChek Wellness

NHL Stanley Cup Champion #27, Scott Parker, is a former ice hockey player who played professionally for ten seasons with the Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks from 1998 to 2008. Parker earned his nickname, “”The Sheriff””, from his reputation as a feared fighter and enforcer and retired from the NHL in 2008 after having suffered upwards of 25 concussions.

After being diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and exploring various treatment options, Parker decided to take the “road less traveled” and pursue CBD as his primary source of treatment and long-term rehabilitation and recovery plan. Scott and his wife, Francesca, will speak about the impact of TBI on their family and how a devastating diagnosis ultimately gave them renewed purpose.

Today, the Parkers are passionate about helping professional athletes, war veterans and the public at large find a better road to recovery by challenging the western medicine’s traditional approach to treatment, specifically in terms of long-term conditions. Together with their son, DJ, they founded Parker’s Platoon, a Colorado 501c(3) non-profit charitable organization that brings a “”Team Room”” concept by pairing combat veterans and retired professional athletes together, fostering their WARrior spirits to transition together to live post-career. As an NHL ambassador for Athletes for CARE, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Scott is also helping to advocate for the health, safety, and wellbeing of people of all ages who compete annually in sanctioned sports globally.
