Yoga teacher and medium Alaine Portner of Medford facilitated a human pod of 20 dolphin lovers in late September on her second annual retreat in Bimini for a week of snorkeling, yoga, breathwork, bodywork, and spiritual mediumship sessions. Each activity supports a feeling of harmony, enhancing a sense of wonderment at the mysteries of life, and even afterlife.
The group gathered in Florida, and took a chartered flight 50 miles from Fort Lauderdale to Bimini. The Bahamian destination is actually three small islands, all surrounded by warm, clear turquoise waters that attract sea seekers from around the globe. Colorful reefs are inhabited by schools of glittering fish, turtles, sting rays, eels, and an assortment of underwater creatures.
