with Body-Mind Therapies and Tantric Meditations
Aquafloating is a warm water located therapeutic method that is so natural and uncomplicated that it does not even seem to be a therapy,
however it does have profound healing capabilities. In a warm water pool, one person fully supports the body of another who is then able to
experience the feeling of floating. Initially the guiding partner moves the body of the receiving partner slowly and gently,
with the head safely held above the water in order to breathe.
After several minutes the receiving partner usually relaxes deeply enough so that the guide can move the receivers body and
head under the surface for several seconds. The guide ensures that the receivers’ head returns above the surface to take a new breath.
Over the next several minutes the two partners find a natural rhythm of movement and breath, so that there is a energetic flow.
The session can then proceed as long as the partners are comfortable.
Both the roles of being an Aquafloating Guide and Receiver support deep relaxation in both body and mind.
Stress and tension can be released from the muscles of the body as well as the deeper subconscious of the mind.
Trust can replace fear, letting go or ‘going with the flow of life’ can appear instead of fighting the current of difficult life circumstances.
Deep relaxation and inner peace but more than these...
ultimately Aquafloating is about becoming one with Existence
The roles between guide and receiver are fluid, it is not that one ‘gives’ while the other ‘takes’ rather the presence of being in the water
together supports the trust and synchronicity so that two merge as one. Ultimately Aquafloating is about letting go of one’s ego and
becoming one with the Existence - thus it has quite a Tantric quality.
As the goal of tantra is also to aim towards the ultimate oneness with the support of a partner.
The skill of being an Aquafloating Guide is less about being able to move a partner in certain movements and more about being in tune
with the partner. Out of that space of connection the movements become natural and spontaneous,
and the guide might experience the receiver is actually guiding them in a non-verbal communication.
Being in water is natural for us all
Being in water is natural for us all. 70% of our planet is covered by water and 70% of our body also consists of water.
Our life begins in the waters of our mother’s womb. Water easily contains energies.
Water is symbolic for love, feelings and emotions. Although the fear of fear is deep in many people,
we will be in the safe environment of a shallow pool, supported by a caring partner,
thus Aquafloating can be an ideal method for those wishing to become more friendly with water.

day we will spend in the group hall for therapy and meditations.

Aquafloating was created in the Osho Multiversity, Pune, India in 1994 by Samudro’s friends and colleagues in Breath
and body oriented therapies, Dhyana Kokila and Marga Dhyani. Samudro assisted them in their first Aquafloating Course.
Aquafloating is distinct from other aquatic therapies, such as Watsu, in that it has meditation and energywork as its background,
hence it has a greater holistic approach than solely body or health oriented aquatic therapies.
During its development it was found that the method took people into deeper states of meditative silence than could normally be
experienced in other methods.
Samudroprem is a British-born psychologist and energy therapist who is well known in Eastern European and Asian nations as leader of
chakra energy therapy groups. As the founder of the Oshō Energy Transformation Institute he has been presenting seminars and trainings
in a broad spectrum of therapies including - Chakra Energy Transformation, Breath Therapy, Relationships and Tantra, Reliving Childhood
(Neo-Primal), Reliving Past Lives, Bodytypes Character Analysis, Family Constellations, Aura-Soma Colour System and Osho Meditations.
