I felt like I manifested Dr. Joe announcing an advanced follow up workshop in Amelia Island, FL (just a quick flight to Jacksonville from RVA) out of thin air when I received the email notification to sign-up a mere couple of weeks before the workshop was to begin this past summer. You can ask my husband, I was jumping-out-of-my-skin excited. I signed up immediately with a heart full of anticipation and excitement.
Did it live up to the hype I allowed myself to feel? Hell yes. Hell yes. HELL YES.
The previous workshops I attended with Dr. Joe (one in Philadelphia and one in Santa Fe, New Mexico) have both been during cold times of the year in cold places. Not exactly cathclaire’s dream environment to say the least. Boy was doing the walking meditations each morning on the beach in smoking hot Amelia Island vs. freezing temps in Santa Fe such a treat for me!
Not only that, but we slept in the ballroom – all 500 of us – alternating going in and out of meditation and sleep. I know that sounds horrific, because TBH it did to me initially, but it was SUCH an amazing experience. It was a giant slumber party. I usually would get dressed in my pjs and have a glass of wine or two before the dreamtime sessions to get into my flow..
Yes, this is me in my favorite Dodgers sleep t-shirt and the most comfy pajama pants known to man pre-first sleep sesh in the ballroom session. I wore my baseball cap because I wanted to have it for the morning during the walking meditation. We went straight from dreamtime (began at 11 pm + ended around 6 am / sunrise) to the beach to greet the day with the walking meditation. Walking meditations on Amelia Island gave me the same feeling I get when I go to the spa – if that gives you any inclination. Dr. Joe equips you with a guided walking meditation to listen to from your iPhone as a group and you walk as your dream self, in your dream life, full of good vibes and high frequency emotions. Isn’t this how everyday should start?
see what I mean……… I captured this on the walk down to the beach at sunrise at The Omni Resorts Amelia Island Plantation.
After the walking meditation, we were free to enjoy the resort until late afternoon for another 2 hour or so session. We basically had the entire day to enjoy the sun and the pool!
The most common question I received about this workshop was whether or not I was exhausted after such little sleep and from the fact that I slept in a confined space on a hotel ballroom floor. The answer is absolutely not. I was so energized. I don’t know how that was the case but I am not complaining one bit.
As I mentioned in my previous post about my favorite Dr. Joe Dispenza youtube videos – my brother Evan accompanied me on this trip to Florida. He didn’t attend the workshop with me but he stayed in my villa and we go to spend some quality time together due to the unique workshop schedule. He is headed to Spain for the year in a couple of days so it was such a treat to get to hangout before his big adventure!
If you are considering attending one of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Progressive, Advanced, or Advanced Follow Up Workshops – I highly recommend it. I know this isn’t my last one.
If you are on the fence, check out some of his videos on Youtube or the books he has written and of course, practice his meditations. In terms of his books, I always recommend starting with his latest book called Supernatural because it is one where Dr. Joe doesn’t hold back at all and you can truly feel the magic coming from the pages.
I am going to get so emo here but the joy I felt at this workshop brought tears to my eyes. Each time I have attended a workshop, it’s like my chest gets ripped right open a little more, feeling more love than I ever felt was possible. Think I’m a freak yet?
This looks so fun and a great place to vacation at. I could definitely see myself going there.
