Dear Friends, 

Being mammals, dolphins rely on social learning and relationships to stay safe and survive.  In pods, they play, babysit, alert each other to dangers, court and hunt together.

I have been blessed to snorkel with these magnificent and intelligent animals numerous times over the years.

As some of you know, I have a passion for helping teens and their parents deepen and secure their bonds and have found Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go Workshops to be a wonderful way of fostering this!

My latest endeavor is to bring two of my passions together and partner with WildQuest in Bimini to host a Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go Family Retreat. 

Feel free to share this with families who may be interested.  It is a financial commitment due to the travel and vacation nature of this retreat.


hold me tight, don't let me go
