From Fear to Fearlessness: An Integrated Approach to a Life Beyond Limits
Would you like to experience the kind of unshakable confidence that would never leave you, no matter what the challenges that come your way?
Building on what he opens in his talk, “The Truth About What’s Been Holding us Back”, Dolphin will invite participates into taking an honest and transformative look at their past, false beliefs they created when they were very young and some very simple, extremely effective practices they can use to begin practically healing and integrating what has been left unresolved and that is the source of their fear. From this state of resolution, people will have a clear road map and blueprint for a new kind of life, one free of fear and self-created limitation.
Using a unique shift of perspective, proven empowerment strategies, and a variety of mindfulness and authentic relating techniques, Dolphin will guide participants through the often complex and challenging world of the unconscious in order to get at the very root of fear and self-limiting beliefs. From self-esteem, to work, to romance, when we address our limiting core beliefs, what is left is presence, purpose and a direct pathway to our full potential. Join us and realize what you have always known in your heart you are capable of!

Yurts | Glamping in Comfort
Now you can enjoy nature while still having some of the creature comforts of home in our YURTS. The yurt is the traditional dwelling of nomads from Central Asia. Since the 13th century, yurts were used by nomadic horse herders as portable homes. Ours aren’t portable but they’re built for comfort with power, a fridge, a water cooler, a gas heater (so you’ll be toasty warm), a comfy queen size bed, a double sofa bed. They even have a 5 foot sky light so you can do a little star gazing indoors before drifting off to sleep. The yurts don’t have indoor plumbing or running water but there are washrooms nearby. Outside of the Yurt is a picnic shelter with a propane barbecue with side burner, a work / wash station, a tub with dishes and cutlery, a frying pan, a pot, a wash basin, dish soap, tea towels and dish cloth, tin foil / plastic wrap. We also provide a jug for water (water source at shower bldg).
Trapper Cabins: Rustic & Cozy
Rustic yet cozy. The Trapper Cabins are situated in the beautiful wooded valley that runs through the property. These one room cabins are constructed of a log frame and rough lumber plank walls. Each cabin sleeps 5 people. They have a queen bed with a single bunk above it and one other set of wooden built-in bunks with comfy water proof, nylon covered foam mattresses. There’s power, a fridge, a gas heater to keep you toasty warm even in cooler weather, and a small dining table set. There is no running water or plumbing in the cabins but nearby is an outhouse and washroom with a jug of water / hand soap / paper towels. Next to the cabin is a cook shelter and a barbecue (with side burner) and picnic tables. There is also a work / wash station, a tub with dishes, a frying pan, a pot, a french press coffee pot (coffee included), a wash basin, dish soap, tea towels and dish cloth. We also provide a jug for water (water source at shower bldg).
The Geo Domes are designed for nature-cravers and memory-makers. This is where nature and comfort meet. What better way to treat your significant other on a special occasion or “just because” than a unique stay in a geodesic dome. The Domes accommodate a maximum of 2 adults only.
