"When you swim with dolphins in the wild, they lift your spirits, heal you in ways you'd never thought possible, and leave a lasting impression on you that you'll treasure forever. In this book, Olivia de Bergerac recounts her personal and professional adventure in Australia with the dolphins. She describes the different methods she has used to study what she calls the Dolphin Within, the shared but intensely individual experiences people have when they are in close contact with wild dolphins. As a Neuroscientist, she of course studies the brain, but she also studies people's hearts before and after a dolphin swim. She has found scientific evidence of and possible explanations for changes in mind, body and spirit, and offers this book to readers as an opportunity to discover those findings too. Reaching your Dolphin Within could free yourself of fears, phobias, addictions, grief, depression and more. Could the dolphin be a Doctor of the Soul? Could the dolphin show us a way to speed up our evolution?"
