I have had a passion for water all my life. As a child I first joyfully splashed in it and then later swam as often as I could to experience the freedom of a new, alive, natural world. I think I always instinctively grasped the profound importance of water for human development and healing and I knew I had to find ways to use my life to help people to use water to grow and heal. In my many years of teaching babies to swim as a Watsu therapist I saw in the faces of countless babies the joy that I experienced as a child. Watsu is wonderful because you are simply held in warm water while your body is gently moved and massaged, releasing all tensions and fears. I could see the development of the muscular and nervous systems being speeded up and children never developed a fear of water, but instead loved it from the beginning, just as they did in utero, before they were born. I knew that what I was doing was real and was changing lives, and so I worked with adults as well, to help them to become unstuck from their fears of growth and of the water, to be free, to grow, and to heal.

If such growth, joy, and healing can come from lying on the water, how much more might be available through prolonged immersion in it? These questions led me naturally to a deep love of diving, which is perhaps even a deeper joy and passion for me. What had prevented me from discovering the wonderful world of diving years earlier were my own unquestioned beliefs and fears. I had always thought of divers as “young, daring, athletic.” I didn’t fit that image! Therefore, I could never be a diver! It was impossible! This was my self-talk. I convinced myself of a lie! It was so bad that I could not even hold the mouthpiece of a snorkel in my mouth without gagging! How could I possibly manage to breathe under water?

But the water seduced me and healed my fears! The deep joy I found when diving with dolphins, sharks, rays and whales, or simply at the sight of a colorful school of fish overcame my doubts once I had decided not to let my fears and destructive, irrational beliefs dictate the course of my life and destroy my happiness!

While learning snorkeling and scuba diving around the world I met many people who have supported me to live my dreams. I learned new ways of thinking that taught me how to overcome my fears and lack of confidence. I managed not only to feel comfortable with the mouthpiece of a snorkel, but went on to develop the expertise to help others to overcome their fears. I am now a qualified scuba diving instructor specializing in teaching timid people how to not only be relaxed in the water, but how to use the water to move beyond their fears into a new joy in living. I have found that when you face your fears and even phobias and panic attacks, that you will free yourself, grow, and heal, just as I have done.

Now I too have diving stories to tell! I swam fourteen hours over the open sea to land, off the coast of Mexico! The captain of our diving boat could not find our group in the ocean after a two hour driftdive and so we had no choice but to swim back to land. I thought, “I can not do this! Never! It’s impossible!” But my experience has taught me that those thoughts were just reflections of my lack of self-confidence, my lack of experience, and my fears. Now I think differently: “I can do this! If not today then tomorrow; nothing is impossible!” Your life will change when you learn to think the same way; diving will teach you how! Just like our own inner depths, the oceans that cover our planet and produce most of the oxygen we breathe are large and deep, and still largely unexplored. We need not be afraid of either; by learning to know and love the depths of the seas you will transform your relationship with your own inner depths.

What could be more transformative? What could be more freeing? What greater gift can you give to yourself than to rise above your own fears and limitations and experience life from new and fascinating perspectives?

Come join me and learn to breathe out your fears and breathe in joy and life together as we dive and explore new worlds!
