Trish and Doug
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
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.

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, before 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

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY:
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."

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.
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."
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."
