What happens at a floating gathering?
With every gathering, we bring together a wide community to share a sound-based experience in a natural setting. No two floating experiences are alike, but each week we curate a performance or practice to guide us through divine improvisation, a meditation, sound bath, hike, or other outdoor activity.
How much does this cost?
Our monthly memberships range from $11 - $22. This directly supports the artists involved, our staff, the parks and gardens that host us, and provides us with the flexibility to host donation-based gatherings that are accessible for all. Being said, no one has or will ever be turned away for lack of funds. If you would like to attend a gathering but can't swing it financially, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why isn't everything donation-based?
Fair question! In commitment to right livelihood for working artists, fair compensation for our staff, and acts of redistribution and reparations for various organizations and mutual aid projects, we ask for participants to make financial contributions at a sliding scale. For those who can afford this, this helps to eliminate barriers to access and covers the real costs of our gatherings. We are committed to adjusting our model and working with various needs that enable access for all who wish to be involved, so if you have any thoughts and feeling just reach out!
Are floating gatherings all ages?
Yes! Absolutely! Bring your kids! We typically conclude our programs at sunset, try our best to keep everything accessible for all, and for the record, humans under 18 can always come through for free (or donation-based).
What’s your COVID safety policy?
All floating experiences are held outdoors, so fully vaccinated guests, performers, and staff can attend without wearing a mask. We kindly suggest that you wear a mask when within 6' of people outside of your party or partaking in any indoor space (mainly restrooms).
Sounds cool, but like... why?
We wholeheartedly believe in the transformative nature of sound, music, and the constructive change in our communities that can arise from consistent gatherings among disparate and kindred neighbors. We also feel very strongly about environmental education, conservation, and thinking creatively in response to repairing our personal relationships to the land and bioregions that we co-inhabit.
