I’ve been thinking about the Western Caribbean Sea Angels Cruise, where we spent last week in real heat and humidity, while all my Cincinnati friends were spending a chilly week here.
My number one favorite part was the Mayan sweat lodge that several of us participated in in Cozumel. The presenter, Moises, was both a gifted student of Mayan culture and a talented leader in guiding us through the four phases of the sweat. We finished by jumping into a cenote – the bottomless pools that exist throughout the Yucatan peninsula. (Okay, I didn’t really jump – I climbed down the ladder. It was still a fabulous experience!) And I am now the Yellow Lunar Warrior, according to the Mayan calendar.
My second favorite part was floating down the Martha Brae River in Jamaica, particularly after being driven over an hour on Jamaican roads to get there. Best not to look out at the traffic is my advice. The river made up for everything.
Coming into one-ness while experiencing the Alexander Technique with Vivien and Neil Schapera was an incredible moment, as was dousing for ghosts at Rose Hall Great House. Lots of other great times, as well, especially teaching Reiki to so many great people on the days we were at sea. A yummy experience altogether!
