Editorial Reviews

Whale Journey: Connecting with the Humpback Whales, is a 28-minute evocative and experiential film about humpback whales, with stunning underwater footage that includes whales initiating contact with people. It sheds light on who these magnificent beings are--their vast intelligence, and their importance in the planet's ecosystem, containing informative quotes from scientists about cetaceans.

The intended audience is anyone with an interest in whales, from an environmental perspective of protecting whales, to the consciousness of the cetacean brain and intelligence, to interspecies communication research and experience, to those wanting to have a personal encounter with whales. This film can also be used as part of an educational program.

My first underwater encounter with humpback whales was completely unexpected. I had been swimming in the ocean with some wild spinner dolphins, and suddenly two enormous figures came into view. There was no time to feel any fear. I was immediately enveloped in what I can only describe as “immense gentleness” and I was aware of a vast consciousness. The whales cruised slowly by, maintaining eye contact with me the entire time. As they disappeared, I was filled with a euphoria that lasted three days. Then I became aware of a depth of being in me that I had not noticed before. Clearly something profound had happened, and it changed my life.

This experience with the humpback whales began an exploration into who and what whales are--their brains, minds and consciousness, why they are contacting humans after our massive slaughter of them, and their importance in not only the ocean ecosystem, but the entire ecosystem of the planet. I realized that I wanted to share this experience and information that I have researched in the way I know best, through photography and video. After three trips to Tonga to be with the humpback whales in the water and film them, I created Whale Journey.

The cetaceans are in great peril from causes such as pollution, sonar blasts, radiation, overfishing and needless slaughter. Please contact a cetacean / ocean conservation group to see how you can help. 10% of the Whale Journey proceeds are being donated to cetacean organizations.
