Mindful Diving

November 12, 2017

“Descriptives for the scuba diving experience include; “freedom”,  “weightlessness”, and “tranquility”. These same words could be used to express being fully immersed in the present, through mindfulness.  The wandering mind jumps here and there, from past to future, and needs help to stay in the present. That help has been found with the use of Mindfulness Based Practices.   Independently, both scuba diving and Mindfulness Based Practices can contribute to our feeling of connectedness,  leading to heightened well-being, when combined, the effects grow exponentially. 

VIP Diving has collaborated with Sarah Wilner, M.A. to create The Mindful Diver Specialty; combining  the scuba diving experience with the use of scientifically supported Mindfulness Based Practices.  

The two-day Mindful Diver experience at VIP Diving is designed to guide participants in the use of Mindfulness Based Practices to enhance the benefits associated with scuba diving.  This program is appropriate for all Open Water Certified divers, and includes 3 open water dives and a confined water session. 

Ann Phelan of Caribbean Wind and Sun Vacations has teamed up with VIP Diving and Sarah Wilner, M.A. to offer the Mindful Diver Specialty to her clients, as part of her repertoire of wellness programs. For additional information, please contact Ann at ann@bonairecaribbean.com
