Playing with Dolphins – filmed at the 2008 retreat
This is a five min piece filmed by Hannelore. She shared, “Often while filming it may appear I am swimming along side the dolphins when in fact I remain in one spot as they swim in circles around me. Part way through the video you will see how they love playing the ‘leaf game’. We sometimes do this for hours.
Sweet day spent with Dolphins and buzzed’ into an altered state with clicking sounds. According to research, the Dolphins sonar and clicking sounds affect our DNA and elevate our human brain wave patterns of consciousness. Many people who interact with Dolphins in the water experience a shift in brain wave patterns from beta to a more relaxed theta state of consciousness.
When I watched the footage I noticed that at the 1:14 min mark, it was especially pronounced while the dolphins swam directly below me. Immediately following I noticed my camera was focused on the ocean floor for a few seconds – at first I thought I may have forgotten to turn it off – then I snapped out of it so to speak – and continue filming.
This day was a special treat as we had 3 pods of Pilot Whales swim by our boat. I was out in the water when I found myself in the center of their pod. As you can see in the video they were below me and on both sides.
Pilot whales are among the largest of the oceanic dolphins, Males can reach up to 6.7 m (22 ft) in length and can weigh as much as 2300 kg (5070 lb). Females average about 5.7 m (19 ft) and weigh about 1300 kg (2900 lb).
