An Open Philosophy
We are a home for exploring consciousness together. Our main aim is to stimulate greater awareness. Our main offering and practice is sensory deprivation. With less sensory interference, we believe we can better spur awareness itself.
Our practice is based in being human. How human beings understand existence is constantly, simultaneously modulated through our sensory experiences — a process that can be very layered and noisy. The definition of perception is to become aware of something through the senses. At the same time, the shared reality that we are sensing through and into is dynamic and differs from person to person and day to day. For these reasons, sensory-based understanding presents a good deal of complexity in the quest for greater consciousness.
We are open to new ideas. But what if we could simplify sensation or strip it away entirely? What if we could quiet the buzz of everyday external sensory stimulation long enough to hear our own internal sensory vibrations? How might we transform what we can know?
We are a family rooted in the care economy. Pursuing an alternative pathway to consciousness that questions sensory-based understanding takes community and chutzpah. We are that community, bent on becoming more aware of what is. We welcome all people with all kinds of identities. We are offer negotiated arrangements of access to meet the needs of the space and the community.
We love our space and her guardians. We love our space and work together to keep it nice for everyone. Please join us in honoring our space and her guardians by doing your part.
