Water Dreaming - Nature Connection & Kayaking
"Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being."
Do you feel drawn to water? Or maybe you want to step out of your comfort zone in the terrestrial and want to experience a deeper connection to another nature element - water.
Water Dreaming combines nature connection and kayaking into a mindful, sensuous experience, on water. Drifting with gentle waves, immersing in a symphony of rhythmic water gurgles, and noticing the lives that water support, you will find yourself easing into a zone of tranquility. You will be invited to connect with nature and water through gentle facilitation. Finding your harmony through a tea ceremony, witnessed by the setting sun and crimson sky, you leave renewed, having found your 'moon and stars'. This programme is crafted to be gentle, soothing and safe, and no pior experience in kayaking is required.
The Water Dreaming is a collaboration between Xiu Nature Connections and SplashAxis.
Limited to 20 participants only.
Fee: $68 per pax, or $118 for two (includes rental of kayaks and equipment, tea and snacks)
[Note: we use double kayaks and will assist to pair up single registrants]
Am I suitable for the Water Dreaming programme if I have no kayaking experience?
No prior kayaking experience is required. At the start of the programme, certified kayaking instructor(s) will be going through the basics of kayaking. We will not be kayaking for long distances. The kayaks used in this programme are sit-on-top kayaks, which are very stable on water. Wearing of life vests is compulsory, and we will provide the life vests.
Is there a minimum age requirement for this event?
The Water Dreaming programme is designed based on the principles of forest bathing. As it is a slow, mindful and contemplative experience on water, it may not be suitable for children under the age of 15.
What if it rains?
In situations where there are lightning alerts, low visibility, or if the authorities (PUB in this case, as we are using the reservoir) are performing any compulsory water works, we will personally contact you at least 45 minutes before the meeting time to confirm if the programme will proceed or be cancelled. If cancelled before the commencement of the programme, participants can register for another similar replacement session without any additional charges.
What happens when there are not enough participants to start the session?
We rarely cancel sessions due to small number of participants. However, if we do, paid registrants will receive notifications from us and can opt for a full refund or opt to register for another similar replacement session without any additional charges.
