Field Report: 08/08/13 by Founding Facilitator Krystal
Last night at dinner, I asked our client Nancy about her goals for today’s sessions. She first quoted Herman Melville, thinking about the power of the ocean.
There is, one knows not what sweet mystery about the sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath.
And then Nancy provided the following themes.
- Receive the gifts from the universe
- Physical, emotional, spiritual
Nancy began the day with the dolphin Royal Swim.
During this time, the clients get to know the trainers and the dolphins. Today Nancy first worked with Ayla and Keplar, adult female and male dolphins.
Nancy’s laughter flooded the lagoon as she joyfully participated in the dorsal pull and the foot push.
She was with Ayla the Dolphin on the left and Keplar the Dolphin on the right. The trainers were Vance and Joel.
Her smile says it all.
She participated in the “romance activities” with Maggie the Dolphin. Hugging, kissing, handshakes, ball toss, and dancing. The trainer was Marlo.
Then Nancy had two sessions and her infectious laughter continued to be a sound, among the dolphin chirps and clicks of Jaiyi, ocean waves crashing, and visiting birds!
The evening ended with the Carrot Bay Carnival, getting a sample of the local music, food and culture!
Photos and more details to come on my return! It has been an amazing and profound experience!
I leave you today with the following quote found by Sarah, here at home:
When beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliance of the ocean’s skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it.
~ Herman Melville
