#195 – Grimerica Talks Float Tanks and Meditative Lights With Isaac & Dustin From Float Life

interview starts 46:05

Isaac and Dustin – the owners of Float Life in Calgary join us for a chat about their business, floating, other meditative techniques, and psychedelics among many other topics. So common among our guest, Isaac talks about the synchronicity that lead them to their new business in Calgary. We also chat about cold and warm baths – thermal cycle and cold thermogenesis, lucid dreaming and why we should be floating and all the benefits of it.
Before the show we try meditating under the Pandora Star – deep trance meditative light device. It’s very interesting and it’s supposed to entrain brain waves to multiple states and it creates psychedelic, colorful, geometric imagery.
“Floating” is lying in a fully dark, quiet tank full of warm salt water. It’s so relaxing that you can let go of your body and most physical feeling. This brings your thoughts to the forefront and there are many ways to mindfully meditate or play in the tank.
In the intro we chat about Darren’s halloween with the kids and Graham’s relaxing experience at Thermea Spa in Winnipeg. Graham shares some listener feedback, some trip reports and synchronicities. Wikileaks is still fulfilling the UFO quote of the week.

#108 – Grimerica Talks Mindfullness with Joseph Emet

Joseph Emet, author of his latest book “Buddha’s Book of Meditation – Mindfulness Practices for a Quieter Mind, Self-Awareness, and Healthy Living. We’ve talked about meditation a lot in Grimerica and here is great opportunity to get deeper into mindfulness. 

Joseph has written about sleeping better and stress reduction through meditation and he is the founder of Mindfulness Meditation Centre in Montreal. He also has a doctorate in music and has trained under Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

This is a journey from “brainfullness” to mindfulness, from self-control to self-regulation, and from indifference to compassion. Joseph has been helping cancer patients and many others with a variety of ailments through techniques like focusing on your breathing, mantras, and by non-judgmental observance of your monkey mind. Don’t worry everyone has one. 

“We can all take a few conscious breaths and let go of impatience, hurry, or stress as we go through our day. Living mindfully makes it possible to be in the present.”

-from the foreword by Thich Nhat Hanh

We chat about the stages of awareness through meditation practice, the benefits from depression, anxiety, and insomnia among others.

# 52 – Grimerica Talks to Dr. Amit Goswami Quantum Activist

Dr. Goswami is a bridge builder. And he is one of the few building the bridge between science and spirituality. We have seen Amit in the movie “what the bleep do we know” and he has his own documentary called ‘the quantum activist”. He’s a retired professor of theoretical nuclear physics,  a pioneer of science within consciousness and written many books such as the ‘self aware universe’, the visionary window, physics of the soul, creative evolution, god is not dead and his latest book  Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative. This is deep, heavy and truly fascinating quantum stuff and we are going to try and keep our brains intact here tonight.

# 51 – Grimerica Talks to Brad Burge & Ray Bourhis

In this Grimerican double header we have Brad Burge and Ray Bourhis.

Brad Burge, of MAPS (multidisciplinary association for psychedelic studies) chats with the guys about the latest scientific studies on MDMA for PTSD treatment. Brad is the Direction of Communications and Marketing for MAPS and we learn about the growing body of evidence regarding the power of healing through various entheogens.

Ray Bourhis, author of “Revolt” The secession of Mill Valley chats with the guys about the corporatocracy and corruption in America and what if a city separated from the USofA!? Although this book is a political satire, it really get’s you thinking. Is this a valid and possible form of protest or revolution?

Our inaugural MoneyBomb winner is introduced in the Intro. As usual Graham does his UFO quote of the week and Darren is stingy with his Synchronicity ratings….
