    Meditative Floating Session

    Sensory deprivation tanks have been shown to have numerous health benefits over the years- so why not try it out with a good, hour-and-a-half float? Within the tank, you'll be kept afloat atop a few inches of Epsom-infused water, negating the sensation of weight. And, as the tanks are both sound and light proof, audio and visual stimulation will be denied as well. By not feeding these senses, you'll limit your brain's need to constantly analyze of the world around you. This will allow your creative neural processes to take center stage. In this sense, your experience will be somewhat akin to supercharged mediation, leading to insights and emotional balance. It may sound wacky- but really there's no sound at all.

    4530 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland

    • Induce creative thought processes, plus a meditative state of mind

    Haunted Pub Tour

    (1)
    The Old Town Historic District in downtown Portland is filled with beautiful old buildings and cobblestone streets. Lively with drinking establishments and restaurants today, 120 years ago Old Town was home to many of Portland's less savory episodes -- some would even go so far as to say "wicked and lawless." Moreover, it makes for the perfect stage for a Haunted Pub Tour. Join in on this year-round spine-tingling walking tour and hear first-hand accounts of recent paranormal encounters. In addition to (alleged) ghosts, your tour guide will regale you with stories from Portland's early days when Old Town was home to drug trades, gambling, and prostitution. Learn about the notorious "crimps," whose rampant kidnapping tactics earned Portland the dubious distinction of being known as the most dangerous port city of the western hemisphere in the 1890s.
