"INTO THE LIGHT"
What is it?
"Into the Light" is a magical journey in the Red Sea in Egypt where we will swim and connect with Spinner Dolphins. This retreat will be a deep dive into your inner Self !
When I saw the Spinners in June this year, the message was very strong to come and hold a retreat here with them, knowing that this will be a deep transformative experience for all.
Being with dolphins brings changes to all our bodies - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Just coming back from 3 weeks in Egypt with the Bottlenose and Spinner Dolphins, I can reassure you that it truly is so.
September 20th – September 27th, 2023.
Together, we will spend 6 days and 7 nights on a beautiful spacious boat on the ocean.
What will we do?
Just BE !!
Our day will flow freely, intuitively guided by me, the dolphins, and our group. There will be meditation, breathing exercises, gentle Yoga or Qi Gong, and possibly Watsu and we will
snorkel beautiful reefs, immerse ourselves in the sounds of singing bowls, and, of course, meet the dolphins. They usually swim around the reefs and are very playful in the mornings and evenings before they go out hunting for food. Those are also the times when the day tourists have not come yet or left already, allowing us to have a more exclusive experience with them. Our schedule will be very loose and will adjust itself according to the dolphins and our needs.
I spent many hours with Spinner Dolphins during the 9 months I was in Hawaii, and the stories I can share with you are very heart-opening and empowering.

Enjoy the ocean in a new and different way!
Ocean Flow is a beautiful water experiencce and therapy. It allows you to deeply let go in the ocean.
In the warm water the body feels weightless and light and the gentle movements give you the joy and release of feeling no gravity. The natural healing qualities of the ocean water and the presence of the practitioner bring deep relaxation of body and mind allowing you to surrender to peace. The silence that you experience under water and the flow of movements help you to let go of thoughts - lightness and happiness arise.
While you are first being held, stretched and massaged on the surface you build up trust and begin to relax. Whenever you are ready you will be turned, rolled and gently supported under water (with a nose clip).
I am looking forward to a floating experience with you!
