You know when you find a passion, you want everyone to join in? Well, I've been learning all about Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the non-profit organisation, recently and am so inspired by their incredible work that I want to invite you to join me in supporting them this holiday season.
I am pledging to give 20% ($10) for every copy of my online Yoga for Freediving course sold between now and 31st January 2018, directly to Sea Shepherd to help them continue to defend, conserve and protect the world’s oceans.
As freedivers, we are passionate about the oceans. They are our home and our playground, and we, possibly more than any other group of ocean advocates, truly FEEL the closeness of our relationship through the remarkable similarities our bodies share with our marine cousins, the whales, dolphins and seals; namely the Mammalian Dive Response.
My Yoga for Freediving online programme fills the gap in the existing freediving education systems for students and instructors. It goes to the heart of the challenges we all face at one time or another, recognising that issues with technique lie primarily within our deeper belief systems and can therefore only really be effectively addressed by understanding the mind. We need to learn how to truly relax, trust and let go. Training technique and equalisation alone is not enough.
By addressing the mind and its intrigues as the source of our challenges in the water, Yoga for Freediving enables freedivers to find greater harmony within their dives. This holistic approach opens our hearts and minds to the bigger picture and in doing so we cannot fail to experience greater harmony with our surroundings, that of Mother Nature and our oceans.
Give yourself and your buddies the gift of healthier oceans this holiday season. Not only that, you’ll be giving yourself a huge head-start on next year’s training, by dedicating yourself to understanding your mind and how it can serve or sabotage you – the difference lies in your hands. Click here to purchase your online course and give $10 directly to Sea Shepherd.
Sea Shepherd runs missions and campaigns around the world, including carrying out vital research, activism and education, and political lobbying. They are always in need of funds or volunteers. To find out how else you might get involved go to www.seashepherd.org.
Wishing you love and light this holiday season, and thanks for 'paying it forward' with your support!
With deep love and hugs,
