“My Hawaii trip with Joe 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, Lacrosse Coach & Reiki Master
Hawaii Trip Purpose: The purpose of these trips is to connect deeply and become one with the spiritual energies of Hawaii, to swim with the amazing spinner dolphins and to fully embody our Joy. It’s to explore and share in the profoundly healing and transformational energies that are so available in this sacred place. It’s to live simply, moving with the rhythms of the wind, weather and tides, immersing ourselves in the Love and Joy of Nature on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii.
This trip is for those of us who love the forces of Nature; Fire, Earth, Air and Water. It’s for us who love intimate contact with the elements and the spiritual energies that animate them. And it is for us who love to play, have fun and celebrate. We’ll be living and camping simply; sleeping, swimming and exploring very magical places.
Spinner Dolphins – Shamans of the Seas: The playful Spinner Dolphins that live in the waters of Hawaii are absolutely amazing. They are powerful beings of Light; shamanic masters in the art of transformation. It is an honor, a blessing and a joy to be in their presence. Swimming with them is a heart-opening, life-changing experience, and you will come away with a profound sense of connection to their spirit.
Honu, the Hawaiian Sea Turtle: We will 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.
Cetacean Summit Update! (Join both events for a $175 to $275 savings!)
The Cetacean Summit is a gathering of cetacean guides from around the world. We will be sharing our insight and inspiration with kindred cetacean lovers! The Summit is a 5 day conference from March 1st to 5th here on the Big Island of Hawaii. I am one of the presenters and would love for you to come to both this trip and the Summit.
If you sign up for both this retreat and the Cetacean Summit, you will receive a $175 discount off the cost of this retreat. If, when you register for the Cetacean Summit, you pick me as your referring presenter, you will get an additional $100 off the cost of this trip (a combined savings of up to $275).
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 gifts of each day, including our evening appreciation circles that acknowledge and celebrate your unique gifts.
At the end of this retreat, we will be a tightly knit tribe of kindred spirits, bringing our love and passion onward into the world. For those of you who will be joining me at the Cetacean Summit, we will bring our shared exuberance into the conference, adding to the wonderful mix of joy and transformation that awaits.
Trip Itinerary: We meet at the Kona airport at 3 pm on the 23rd (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 set up 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.)
We will hold our closing circle on the evening of Feb 27th. The next morning, Feb 28th, we will break camp early as i need to join an early morning event for the presenters of the Cetacean Summit. You can either ride with me back to Kailua-Kona that morning, or you can hang out on the beach there and arrange your own transportation from there.
