Watching them was unexpectedly powerful and moving. I felt I was witness to some sacred dolphin space. The thought occurred to me that this bay might be their equivalent of a cathedral in the water. We humans build cathedrals as high places, where our minds can soar up into the heights where we imagine the angels are. But a dolphin’s world is inverted. Much as human beings are tied to the ground, a dolphin is tied to the ocean’s surface, which it has to keep making contact with for air. So, whereas we build cathedrals to enclose a great space and height, maybe this bay was a natural “structure” for the dolphins, enclosing a great depth.

Futurist PETER RUSSELL transcends his fear and expands his consciousness during a sacred and magical swim with a pod of wild dolphins off a Hawaiian island.
