Free Spirit Spheres, round wooden rooms set among the trees of the west coast rainforest of Vancouver Island, Canada, are sort of like tree houses for adults. “Uses for these spheres are limited only by one’s imagination. Healing, meditation, photography, and canopy research” are just some of the things you can do.
Creator Tom Chudleigh, when asked how he came up with the idea, says this: “The trouble I have is that I do not exist in a meditative state often enough or long enough to completely escape my attachment to the physical world. This led me to pose the question, ‘What can I do to prolong these whole minded moments?’ The idea for the spheres came from that. The spheres are all about unity and oneness.”
Rates range from $125-$175 (Canadian) per night. Or you can build or buy your own. For more information, visit http://www.freespiritspheres.com/index.htm.
Anyone ever live or spend the night in a tree house? How did it affect your practice?
