Suspension.org is a website for those interested in the art and technical
aspects of body suspension and the responsible dissemination of
information pertaining to such. It is not designed to encourage people
to attempt any dangerous activities.
The act of suspension is hanging the human body from (or partially from)
hooks pierced through the flesh in various places around the body.
There are many different reasons to suspend, from pure adrenaline or
endorphin rush, to conquering ones fears, to trying to reach a new level of
spiritual consciousness and everything in between. In general, people
suspend to attain some sort of "experience".
Some people are seeking the opportunity to discover a deeper sense
of themselves and to challenge pre-determined belief systems which may
not be true. Some are seeking a rite of passage or a spiritual encounter
to let go of the fear of not being whole or complete inside their body.
Others are looking for control over their body, or seek to prove to
themselves that they are more than their bodies, or are not their bodies
at all. Others simply seek to explore the unknown.
