Dolphin Dream Time Luxury Rewilding Retreat

26 October – 5 November 2019

 

10-Night Inspirational Dolphin Adventure in Mozambique

Facilitated by Mags Mackean and Courtney Ward

Vision

Dream big and dive deep into the oceanic depths of your creativity. Be inspired by the guardians of the dreamtime, the Bottlenose Dolphins, and anchor your vision for you, the world, and generations to come. Immerse in sacred lands, reefs and waters of the Indian Ocean in Southern Mozambique.

Drop everyday distraction to listen deeply, your heart wide open – to receive your soul’s vision calling to be lived…

Let the dolphins guide you, as you explore: What is my unique song I long to express, and gift this world? What is the change I dare to make, live and see?

  • Experience a 10-night immersion at the amphibious temple of Malongane – “where heaven and earth meet”
  • Meet the resident dolphin pods in respectful encounters, including 5 wild swims.
  • Witness the last of the migrating Humpback Whales en route to their Antartica base; the turtles, the ocean’s most ancient residents swimming vast distances back to their native beach to lay eggs
  • Be guided with simple transformative tools to make the bold steps of change in your everyday life…
  • Take part in plastic beach sweeps, and co-create a sculpture with local schoolchildren to celebrate our oceans
  • Experience the vast starry African sky by the fire as dozens of indigenous instruments sound you into hidden dimensions.
  • This is a life-changing opportunity to connect with the ocean’s most magnificent beings. A briefest look into the eyes of a dolphin will change you forever.
  • This is a time to reconnect with our creative force, our intent, our sexual essence, our passion, our desire, our spontaneity – and everything holding these hostage 

Embodied visioning practices

The re-imagining of who we are happens in a space of ceremony, meditation, inquiry, subtle movement – exploring through guided drum journeys, breath work and dance. Tracking the subtle wisdom of our bodies, we open up to the intelligence of the dolphins and the body of the ocean.

As we listen deeply to ourselves, we attune to the messages held on the land, the dunes and trees, the song of the wild water, encounters with those around us, and our reflection in the eye of dolphin. We learn to recognise and trust this language of the dreamtime, the journeys they invite us to make, moving from form to formless and back again, exploring new forms, new ways of being.

On a typical day, will have three circle meets (as well as our group feasts twice a day); on ocean-faring days, two. There will also be many hours each day to roam and rest.

Mags MacKean

Mags MacKean

Mags MacKean is an author, storyteller and guide. She has drawn inspiration from wild places – quitting her career as a BBC journalist to scale some of the remotest peaks in the world. Her first book, ‘Meetings On The Edge, A High Level Escape From Office Routine’ charts her hapless adventures, a crippling fear of heights – and the realisation how lasting change can’t be external. ‘The Upside Down Mountain’ explores the opposite direction: earth-bound and what the journey of descent means for a fulfilling life.Mags has immersed with shamans in the Amazon, Andes and South Africa. An inspirational storyteller, she supports individuals to embody their creative voice and vision, and guides transformative journeys, including to Peru’s ancient heartland: “I believe in the One Soul: life continually whispering to us in the subtle nudges of our bodies, the reflections of land, people and Mother Nature, leading us ever more deeply into the mystery of ourselves…”

Hazel

We were so lucky and happened to swim with a huge superpod of dolphins – not only was that mind blowing, the reefs were alive with schools of fish – what a privilege to witness – thank you Courtney for the magic you also found us the most wonderful accommodation. We could not have asked for a better or more relaxing holiday.

Deborah

From almost immediately after our session, I felt a shift. I feel more capable than I did and not so stuck in a loop of anxiety like before. I have been more focused and positive – I got onto my dream course, I am freelancing in a job I like and don’t find incredibly stressful (!) and things are progressing with my other project. I doubt I would have managed all this before, so thank you.
