“… And you will discover that mermaids are not those sirens of that myth, but the navigators of the emotional underworld, who will help you reach the other side, extending yourself, feeling the wind in your hair …” - Lucy Cavendish
 

 
 
Return to Atlantis

A Mermaid's Journey

Bimini, Bahamas

November 14-20, 2016
 
 
Are you fascinated with stories and tales of Mermaids...
Do you feel a connection to Atlantis and Lemuria...
Are you mesmerized by dolphins and the sea...
Do you feel at home in the water...
Do you gravitate towards highly energetic locations...
Do you feel called to discover, explore and reconnect with these magical energies...

If what you've read so far resonates, then keep reading - this is the adventure for you! There has been a resurgence of interest in 'mermaid lore' recently, and this we feel, is deeply connected to the divine feminine energies on the planet that are being reawakened at this time. Most of what modern culture shares about mermaids doesn't go beyond the famed Hans Christian Andersen and Disney depictions. There is a much more interesting story and deeper meaning behind the legend of mermaids that is connected not only to numerous indigenous cultures around the world, but to other star systems and civilizations as well.
These mermaid myths, the ones you've heard and the ones you haven't heard - the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the magical, the dark - illuminate both shadow and light aspects of the feminine - ALL of which require our unconditional love and acceptance. This 'mermaid energy', for those who are called to it, holds a major key to understanding and experiencing what true unconditional self love really means.

This invitation is a grand opportunity to do meaningful inner work to break down belief systems we carry as to how we define what it means to be a woman; to be feminine. We heal the heart through this exploration, understanding, forgiving, and shattering of these frameworks that keep us from our deepest acceptance and love of our selves.

If you are feeling called to reconnect to this powerful feminine energy come join your mermaid tribe on the gorgeous island of Bimini this fall where we will be exploring, activating, connecting, healing and playing!
The Significance of Bimini Island

Atlantis Connection... The famous Edgar Cayce, known as 'The Sleeping Prophet' repeatedly cited Bimini as once part of the lost empire of Atlantis named Poseidia. Cayce stated that remains of temples would be found in the waters surrounding Bimini, and that those who journey to the Atlantis Energy Vortex near Bimini with a good heart will be rewarded by gaining knowledge of their spiritual goal in this incarnation.

Energy Grid... Bimini is believed to be the energy source that powers the planetary energetic grid which connects to other powerful sacred sites around the globe. According to numerous channels and sources, the island of Bimini sits atop a Ruby Red Crystal that was fully activated on Summer Solstice, June 2016. Bimini purportedly serves as the power source for the new crystalline matrix energy grid for planet earth.
The Wild Dolphins... Bimini is home to resident pods of wild dolphins that embody an energy like nothing we've ever experienced before. Some believe the dolphins that swim in Bimini waters are the keepers of the Atlantean temples located nearby.

The island of Bimini, its healing waters and resident dolphins further connect us with fifth dimensional energies that serve to unlock dormant codes within, of joy and ecstatic bliss; a lightness of being we once knew long, long ago and are ready to embody once again.

 
Is This for Me?...

This journey is not for everyone. Designed for only 12 women who hear the call, this is for you if...

… You are ready to embark on a deeply immersive experience to open and discover your most vulnerable, authentic, open hearted and embodied SELF.

…You are ready to heal through the heart, with the tools of compassion and allowing rather than doing “hard work” and exerting “effort”. The space, the energy and joy of the activities of this retreat create the healing that will happen on an experiential level.

… You can leave your cell phone, computer and all connection to the outside world at the door and spend this week immersed the exploration of YOU!


This is NOT for you if ...

...You are looking for a party, the lowest priced retreat, or if this is a time in your life where opening yourself up to being vulnerable might feel overwhelming, then this may not be the experience for you.


* This adventure is open to women over the age of 21 who are in general good physical health and can swim.
* PLEASE NOTE: Passports are required for travel to Bimini.

Important to Understand . . .

This is not a teaching lesson in spirituality or particular set of beliefs, anthropological history or legend. While there will be much knowledge, stories and experience shared by your facilitators and amongst all of the women that are drawn to gather, we will not be 'telling you' your answers - we will be creating space for you to be 'shown' - and the grand revealer is YOU. Bimini holds energetic codes that will be activated within to accelerate your journey. While you will likely learn much on this journey, the emphasis is primarily on what you will experience, feel, BE, and become, upon your return.

What Your Adventure Holds:

• Mermaid Swimming - Undulating through the water in a mermaid tail evokes the beautiful sensation of freedom, joy and playfulness. You will receive your own mono fin and tail skin and we will teach you how to swim like a mermaid - with lots of time to practice!

• Swim with the Wild Dolphins of Bimini - (spotted and/or bottlenose). There are simply no words. It is THE most incredible, magical experience of this sort that we've ever had. A true bucket list once in a lifetime experience.

• Snorkel Morzel Reef and Wreck - A location that is now haven to scores of tropical fish and sea life in 20 feet deep water.

• Sound Bath at the Healing Mangroves - We’ll go on an excursion to what locals call "The Healing Hole”, which is a section of the creek that is connected to an underground labyrinth of narrow tunnels. On the outgoing tide, cold water with a very high mineral content flows out of these tunnels and into the creek. Many people believe that these waters have healing powers, after experiencing it ourselves we believe so too!
