We spend a lot of our time staying up to date on what science says is the best way to stay well. And it’s increasingly clear that the way you take care of your mind impacts your body and your day-to-day life.
Meditation, credited with being like brushing your teeth for your brain and making people “10% Happier” can help to bring focus, clarity and stress relief to you day. If you’ve heard about meditation (or people keep telling you that you should do it), but have no idea how to make it a practice, we’re challenging you to join us Thursday mornings in September to dig in.
So we’re presenting four different opportunities to practice mindfulness with four different focuses in four different breather spaces.
- September 8: 230 W. Monroe #205-2 (get tickets here)
- September 15: 223 W. Jackson #1100 (get tickets here)
- September 22: 308 W. Erie, 7th Floor, Suite 705, Room 1 (get tickets here)
- September 29: 230 W. Monroe #205-1 (get tickets here)

About Float Sixty:
Float Sixty is the only floatation center in Chicago. Floating is the practice of using sensory deprivation in order to help relax and heal your mind and body. This is achieved by going into either a room, tank or pod which has a depth of 10in of water that is heated to body temperature and saturated with about 1000 pounds of salt! When you lay down, 90% of gravity is removed and you will be floating effortlessly. Think the dead sea, but remove light and sound. This is a great technology for everyone to utilize in their routine. Enhanced meditative states, muscle recovery, working around problems, creating new ideas, are just some of the benefits you will get with this practice. It gets better each time you do it. We look forward to seeing you at Float Sixty!
