Dolphin Meditation

Precautions/Contraindications:

The Dolphin Meditation encourages participants to use a rigorous breathing technique, which could lead to temporary dizziness and a dry mouth. Also, individuals with the following conditions should not participate in the Dolphin Meditation:

  • Recent surgery or fractures
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Glaucoma
  • Pregnancy past the first trimester
  • Extremely high or low blood pressure that is not regulated by medication
  • Epilepsy
  • Mental illness, in particular bipolar disorder and paranoid personality disorder


Preparations:

  • Wear loose fitting clothing or bring something comfortable to change into. You will need to give your body room to breathe.
  • Bring a yoga mat or a few blankets; you will be resting on your back on the floor.
  • For best results, do not come to the meditation with a full stomach. Try to stop eating 3 hours before the meditation. If you’d like, you may bring a light snack to consume after the session.
  • Think of a question that you would like to ask the dolphin. The question should be something meaningful to you.

Please note that we require you to sign a waiver in order to participate in the Dolphin Meditation.
