I just returned from the BioAquatic workshop in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island. This letter is to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for this extraordinary program and opportunity. The schedule was filled with diversity, challenge and lots of excitement. Our instructors were loving, fun, knowledgeable, sensitive practitioners and skillful stewards.
From the very beginning we all realized this adventure was going to be very, very special. We were not disappointed - it was magnificent. We were on a flexible yet disciplined, well planned and prepared schedule. Each day was different from the next. During our time together we treated each other and were in turn treated by each other. On two different occasions we visited the Dolphin habitat, once to swim and play together and next the dolphins offered each of us their expert therapy. In between we were out on the boat, at the beach, in the pool, visiting an atoll, picnicking, snorkeling, beach combing, being together and healing together.
Though we did a great deal there was never a sense of rushing. There was time to learn, a time to try our wings, a time to rest. During the scheduled and sometimes rerouted flow of events there was always the meeting room. Here we came together often to blend our experiences, question, learn, share, discuss concerns, express ourselves and rehearse upcoming activities. In these meetings we were comforted and given closure to our many and diverse responses to our treatments and experiences.
Though we came from all over the U.S. and as far away as Switzerland, very soon we became close friends determined to spread the harmony, joy and beauty of our dolphin encounter. We have our dolphin pictures, our new knowledge, enhanced skills and our enthusiasm to share with friends, family, clients, and patients. Your efforts have great value. This program is life changing. One person at a time our planet is healing. With appreciation, love and respect,
