THE LIVING LEGACY IS EVOLVING!

The Living Legacy-Imp II

 

Dancing Dolphin Spirits Charters is EVOLVING not devolving.

 

I am still aboard for the long haul of evolving with this wonderful life experience and have had a serious overture from a fellow captain to turn Dancing Dolphin Spirits Charters into a NON-PROFIT organization. Yes, you heard me right, my business could be transitioning into a new form and would allow me to always remain a part of it! That is so cool, don't you think?

 

The mission statement is in the ethers at the moment and I look to you, my supporters, to help bring it into form. We are in the process of negotiating this transition and it feels somewhat nebulous at this time, but we continue to discuss, open and make room for the changes to come into focus. Right now, we are concentrating on creating the mission statement and will then go for our official 501c3 status. Our desire is to create a non-profit for underprivileged youth in South Florida to come aboard and learn about the sea. Of course, I will still be aboard the Imp II, training the new captain(s), but more importantly, still co-creating with the dolphin and Mother Earth for your magical experiences.

 Teaching marine science has always been a favorite part of my day on the water with all of you, not just the dolphin. To pass the talking stick to a new captain is of paramount importance to this transition as well. Sharing my knowledge and experiences is a gift to me and the new captain. I will be on the Board of Directors of the non-profit and will continue to "steer the ship". This is most exciting for me and will be a true dream come true. My labor of love that has developed, with your help, for 39 years will live on and flourish for generations to come.  By the time of the Summer Solstice, there will be great development towards this goal and I look forward to sharing my transformation with you.

While the transition occurs in the background, I am deeply engaged in creating more specialty retreats for this year. There is a one-day retreat coming up on April 13th with Debra Kupchok. 

 

Debra Kupchok 

 

This will be our 6th Crystals and Dolphins one-day retreat. I am giving a whole day for the half-day price, so it is extra special. Here is the info for that retreat:

Healing Crystals & Dancing Dolphin Retreat combines the vibrational energy of crystals & gemstones with the magical interactions of wild dolphin.This special trip will include time to create our own Crystal Mandalas and Intentional Energy Grids with gemstones we have brought with us, along with items we find in nature as we walk the beach. 

Debra will lead us on a crystal meditation to help us attune to crystals and stones and to hear the messages they have to offer us.

We will have time to journey inward, moving towards personal healing, relaxation, bliss and most certainly a deep sense of well being.

We leave promptly at 9 am and return at 4 pm for a full day of fun, healing and sharing.

September 20th-22nd-  Women's Dolphin Beach Retreat with Susan Wolf and Captain Victoria
Join us for a healing and spiritual experience of connecting to the powerful feminine energies of Grandmother Moon, Grandmother Ocean and the Earth Mother through rituals from an ancient Shamanic Tradition.  Susan Wolf Star brings over 20 years of study and teaching from a Shamanic lineage that can be traced back over 10,000 years.  
Susan Wolf and the moon
She was honored to be a recipient of many empowering teachings for women from this lineage by her teacher, Black Bear, a Cherokee Shaman.  We will be doing ceremonies and rituals to help us connect in a deep spiritual way to the feminine and to create healing in ourselves.  We will honor and pray to our dolphin relations to ask for their blessings and to see what we may do to help them.
