Content of retreat:
On the first
day, we will have our orientation, getting to know
each other and communing with the whales in meditation.
On swim days, late afternoons after our whale encounters,
you may bask in the beauty all around you and swim
in the warm aquamarine ocean right outside your door.
In the evenings on swim days, after a delectable meal,
we will merge with the whale mind in meditation, receiving
channeled messages and be immersed in the expanded,
refined vibrations of their deep wisdom. We will share
our experiences and revel in our special pod energy
of unconditional love. The whales will guide the retreat's
unfolding. We will be changed forever as we touch
the very core of our Beings and our soul purposes.
On the last evening we will have our closing gathering
before leaving the island the next day.
