We live in a hyperconnected world where we connect with more people and things than ever before, causing our attention to be glued to our phones and PC screens. We share our experiences literally with thousands of people at an instant, but often it feels that something is missing like it’s not enough.  Despite all of this connectivity, we grow more and more disconnected with our own experience. It feels like we are brushing over our lives like we are on a fast train. We consume a wider variety of what life has to offer, but yet we seldom go deep enough or get any fulfilment or satisfaction with what we do. This contributes to increased levels of stress and anxiety-related illnesses in the world-wide.

Science finds one of the answers to this in ancient practises like mindfulness. Now it’s clear that there are a huge curiosity and demand for mindfulness in our society. It’s been touted and praised for its effects on stress reduction, self-understanding and emotional intelligence. So what is this thing all about, and how is it done- have you been wondering?

For the past 6 years, Float Culture has been helping Aucklanders to connect with their own internal experiences in the serenity of the floatation tank. We’ve helped thousands of our clients to reduce stress, improve self-understanding and emotional intelligence- sound familiar? 

The floatation tank is a deep enabler of meditation and mindful exploration. Removed of all external distractions, enveloped in warmth and comfort, you’re liberated of physical discomfort and freed to focus on your internal experience, connecting with your body thought the breath. 

To help you to take this connection to the next level and create a lasting change we put together The Urban Monk Program. It is a 3-week course combining daily meditation instruction, philosophical lessons and flotation therapy. Our aim is to help you:

  • Build a positive habit of daily meditation.
  • Learn to come back to the present throughout the day.
  • Show you the depths of your own experience through flotation.
  • Teach you some awesome philosophy with which to tackle every day!

The Program is grounded in Zen philosophy, simplifying the practices and theories to help you introduce mindfulness to your life in an easy to follow and practise way. The Program includes:

  • 4 x 60 min float sessions
  • Daily mindfulness lessons
  • Daily meditation practice
  • Guided meditations
  • Reminders
  • Tools and strategies to increase mindfulness
  • Journal + reflection tasks.
