A Master of Science in Counseling Psychology, Joan Ocean is a psychologist, shaman and scientist who creates environments that support people in transition from one lifestyle, one dimension, and one physical form to another.
After meeting Jean-Luc Bozzoli and experiencing his dolphin-inspired, multi-media art presentation, Ms Ocean learned to swim and began swimming with cetaceans in oceans and rivers in many countries. When a California Gray whale came close to the island shores of British Columbia, and looked directly into her eyes, Ms Ocean experienced a communication between herself and the whale that changed her life forever. She understood that cetaceans around the world are trying to communicate with us. She experiences the gentle communication of the dolphins and whales as sound holography, a language that intensifies physical senses, bypasses rational-cognitive paradigms, resonates directly with our cellular intelligence, and awakens multiple levels of perception and consciousness.
In 1984, Mr. Bozzoli and Ms. Ocean founded their organization, Dolphin Connection, to explore the advancement of human consciousness, biophysics and spirituality by producing visionary films, books, artforms and Ocean Seminars encouraging friendships between people and ocean-swimming dolphins and whales.
