Our home for six nights and six days is a premier beach resort in the Tonga islands (somewhat near Fiji and New Zealand).

It is your ultimate paradise isle dream come true! We will be living on a sandy beach yards from the ocean. We will be pampered by our hosts with delectable gourmet meals and wonderful service.

It is the most magical and uplifting experience to swim up close with whales all day (in Tonga it is legal to swim with the humpbacks) and gather together in the evenings to share our experiences and be in deep meditation with the whales, listening to their channeled messages for us about our spiritual expansion.

Love and Light,
Trish and Doug

Content of retreat:
On the first day, we will have our orientation, getting to know each other and communing with the whales in meditation. On swim days, late afternoons after our whale encounters, you may bask in the beauty all around you and swim in the warm aquamarine ocean right outside your door. In the evenings on swim days, after a delectable meal, we will merge with the whale mind in meditation, receiving channeled messages and be immersed in the expanded, refined vibrations of their deep wisdom. We will share our experiences and revel in our special pod energy of unconditional love. The whales will guide the retreat's unfolding. We will be changed forever as we touch the very core of our Beings and our soul purposes. On the last evening we will have our closing gathering before leaving the island the next day.

"From the moment Doug and Trish mentioned swimming with whales in Tonga, I felt the certainty that this would be the adventure of a lifetime. Not only was I not disappointed, but it also proved to be an experience beyond imagination, beyond description, and altogether beyond comprehension. I still go back to that moment of eye-to-eye contact with the beautiful mother humpback whale when my consciousness seemed to expand into the infinite. I think it gave all of us a new frame of reference for the (Divine). And sharing the joy of the experience with our delightful, small human pod enhance each moment.

Then, on land, our hosts made us feel like we had found heaven on this six-acre white sand island of Mounu. The gourmet dinners were each memorable. Our cozy, two-person Fale welcomed us to dreamtime…at least until the stars of that vast southern sky beckoned us out to the beach again and back into the water for one last dip. Even after spending most of the day out on the boat, or in the water playing with a baby whale, or swimming offshore among the clouds of silvery sardines, we never tired of the magnificent, clean, clear Pacific Ocean. I would like to make this an annual excursion and I heartily recommend it to those who feel called to experience a new dimension of sheer joy." ......... Alletta Bell, Founder of World Healing Institute

"Words are hard to find to describe the impact of eye to eye encounter with humpback whales - creatures of such huge and mysterious consciousness. I bring this mystery back with me and know it is working in me in unknown ways. One thing I do know is that it is a reminder of the sacred in all life and an insistent call to speak and act in alignment with this sacredness.

Trish and Doug did an incredible job in making this rare experience possible. Not only did they work with challenges and countless details, but they are wonderfully attentive to what each of us needs to get the most out of the journey. I am very grateful!" ......... Catherine Regan, Ph.D.

"When one looks directly into the eye of a Whale your life will experience a transformation. This enormous, but oh so gentle being holds our truth. Within the wink of her eye we are asked to seek our deepest truth what and where ever it is.

I returned from the trip with renewed enthusiasm and creative energy. The first day on the computer I wrote a play and revised my storytelling program. I will unequivocally state that I personally received a very valuable message."
......... Anne Olund, MLA

"Our trip to Tonga with you to swim with the humpback whales was by far the best vacation my husband and I have ever taken. The combination of staying at Mounu Island Resort with its luxurious simplicity and spending hours on and in the ocean was profoundly relaxing and centering. Seminars with you and Doug are always joyous and expansive, add swimming eye to eye with the whales and the experience was transcendent--I hardly have words to describe it. We are eager to join you again next year." ......... Sarah and Larry Forsblad
