Tomorrow I am doing my first ever floatation tank. I'm well read up on the subject so I thought a before and after impression would give an interesting perspective. Intellectual vs experiential..

Tom Campbell - My Big TOE

If you've been to my website a few times, or follow the Emerging Paradigms facebook page you've probably noticed that I'm quite a fan of Tom Campbells theories and ideas. Tom is the author of an amazing trillogy of books, collectively known as "My Big TOE". He is also a physicist and experienced "out of body" researcher, he is referred to in Monroe's "Far Journeys" as TC Physicist. If you are fascinated by consciousness and the nature of reality, this is the #1 book I would most highly recommend you read in 2013. It is quite a mindful of information, but well worth the journey!

This article on the relationship between psi and fear caught my attention.

The Biology of Kundalini

An online Ebook by Jana Dixon about the science and biology of the Kundalini awakening experience.

KUNDALINI - (Sanskrit kund, "to burn"; kunda, "to coil or to spiral") a concentrated field of intelligent, cosmic invisible energy absolutely vital to life; beginning in the base of the spine when a man or woman begins to evolve as wisdom is earned.

Darkness Retreat – Ancient Technology for Spiritual Alchemy

An interesting article here about how darkness affects the brain and consciousness.

In the isolation from any external light the third eye (pineal gland) overflows with certain neurotransmitters that awaken the higher brain, the ability to imprint the brain. The imagination begins to externalize, and even when you open your eyes you walk within your imagination.
