"There is no coming to consciousness without pain"
Well, I just got here. That's not really true anymore, but all this still feels new and exploration-worthy to me.
I'm not really good with this whole 'talk about myself' affair, so if you'd want to know what, why and how I got into all of this, please read the story of my personal ascension.
I definitely seem to have developed a passion for body suspension. And because this community seems to be THE place to be to live that passion, I decided to join your little world here. I want to learn as much as I can about it.
No Forum - but I like getting messages. And don't be afraid of the tracking thingie; it doesn't bite.

First, I went to the Paris Tattoo Art fest, met with a few of my newfound friends from this community, learned a great deal about everything related to organizing a suspension meeting (thanks IAM:lefrog and IAM: namesofthedead!) and generally had a great time there.
And when I came home, I had a package waiting for me - my long-awaited copy of "suspended in time" had finally arrived. This book is awesome! Go get it!

As some of you might know, I was trying to secure a dream location (an "indoor jungle" in a giant old greenhouse) for a small suspension meeting this fall/winter. Well, finally, after a meeting with officials a few days ago, I was told that, in principle, the city administration (it`s a public building) is OK with renting me the space for a day or maybe two (thanks, dad!)
All that remains now is filing an "official" application. The deadline for this will be around the last week of June, so I`d need to know until then if there`s enough interest to warrant the expenditure. This is going to be a one-time opportunity that I wouldn't want to miss. Go see for yourself - and imagine suspending in there (click on the link below for a small site with the description of the place)
As it stands now, the most likely date this might well be happening is OCTOBER 27/28.
If this is going to be an one- day event or a weekend event will depend on 1.) how many people would want to come and 2.) if I can get the building for one or two days. Please voice any opinion in the forum!
I have secured the building! So, on October 27/28, this is going to happen!
I`ll update this when there`s any news, so check back here using this Link.

IAM Anahata sent me a few pictures of my resurrection suspension. Thanks!
What strikes me as odd is that serene facial expression, which, let me tell you, doesn´t really reflect the pain.
Trying to drink a cup of water isn´t an easy task any more when you have to maneuver around the rigging :-)
And I wonder if I could submit the last shot to BME, in the "navel piercing" section ;) ... hmm...

I've finally done what I wanted all along - and did a resurrection suspension at the New Year`s suspension meeting in Holland. It`s been a great experience: extremely intense and brutally painful, but equally enlightening. I now know that I`m really able to 'let go'. All in all, it was worth everything.
Thanks to everybody who made that possible! I really have enjoyed the atmosphere at the gathering and met some great people there. I hope to be back next year.
Oh, and I got to go from "mortally afraid of these hooks" three months ago to "So, that`s actually the first ever time you´re going to shove a giant needle in someone`s body? - be my guest" in two sittings. Now, that`s what I`d call an effective therapy :-)
And I`ve learned another thing: Never ever I`ll do something stupid "just for show" again. When you have six hooks in your upper torso already restricting breathing, it`s kind of a bad idea to have a seventh one in the center of your belly as that one will make correct breathing virtually impossible...
