“My Hawaii trip with Joebaby was phenomenal. Swimming with the Dolphins was such a deeper experience then I ever expected. I was also reunited with members of my Soul Family who are dear friends to this day” Gabriella Lizotte, mother of 3, Lacrosse Coach
Hawaii Trip Purpose: The purpose of this trip is to connect deeply and become one with the spiritual energies of Hawaii, to swim with wild dolphins and celebrate our love of life. It’s to live simply, moving with the rhythms of the wind, weather and tides, immersing ourselves in the essence of nature on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii.
Spinner Dolphins – Shamans of the Seas: The playful Spinner Dolphins that live in the coastal waters of Hawaii are absolutely amazing. It is a joy to be in their presence. Swimming with them is an ecstatic experience, and you will come away with a wonderful sense of connection with them and the ocean.
Honu, the Hawaiian Sea Turtle: We also meet the turtles; its a joy to watch them move through the water, they emanate their own quiet grace. We treat the turtles with the same love and respect we treat the dolphins and everyone and everything we meet; with great love and appreciation and respect for their space and boundaries.
Off the Electromagnetic Grid: Give your body and spirit a break! Unplug from the busy electromagnetic grid and plug into Nature’s grace and vitality. Does living simply in the ease and beauty of nature call to you? How about laying on a sandy beach, under a starry sky, to the sound of the gentle surf? Our divinely joyful essence spontaneously comes alive in this setting, away from the routines of our everyday life. Through our circles, ceremonies and sharing we anchor these vitalizing energies into our bodies and our lives.
Our campsite from the water
Joyful Nature Tribe: We live as a tribe sharing in the daily activities of a community; setting up camp, making meals, shooting the breeze, hanging out. We’ll take hikes, swims and walks. There is personal time, quiet time, and time to sit around the picnic table and share the adventures of each day, including our evening appreciation circles that acknowledge and celebrate your unique gifts.
Leaning In! Part of the joy of these trips is everyone pitching in to make things flow. Everybody helping with everything makes everything much more fun. This is not a trip to join if you wish to be catered to and served! Here we share the joy of leaning in together, its a big part of the magic of the community.
Trip Itinerary: We meet at the Kona airport at 3 pm on the first day of our trip, or i can pick you up in Kailua-Kona. We make a stop for those who need to rent snorkel gear (approx $30 for the week) and then we head to the beach and our base camp for the next five nights. From our base camp, each morning we explore and swim in the coastal bays where the spinner dolphins frequent.
Over the past 18 years, we have absolutely incredible dolphin encounters in these bays, swimming with them for hours at a time, often with many life-changing encounters. We’ll spend our week getting to know the dolphins, sea turtles and more, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, feeling new levels of joy and exuberance as we become immersed in the magic of this place.
Kilauea Volcano & Goddess Pele: One day of the trip we may drive south to the Kilauea Volcano where we pay homage to the Goddess Pele, exploring the black lava, smoking earth, caldera and lava tubes. The energy of fire and creation is very strong here, it’s a wonderful place to plant new seeds and intentions for growth and transformation. We will share a simple ceremony here to give thanks for and celebrate the many new blessings and creations that are coming into our lives and our world!
City of Refuge & Ho’oponopono: We will visit the City of Refuge, an ancient place of forgiveness sacred to the Hawaiians. Here we will use the simple grace of the Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono, using it to bring forgiveness and healing to our lives and our world. Ho’oponopono is a powerful healing process that is easily learned and can be use at any time, anywhere. (For an intro video on Ho’oponopono, click here.)
