Dolphin Love


Linda Shay


In this episode, host Junie Swadron talks to fellow author, Linda Shay as well as David Rosenthal.

After eighteen years in the corporate world, Linda realised something profound was missing from her my life.  She took a sabbatical in 1993 and embarked upon a journey of self-discovery.  From the boardroom to swimming with wild dolphins, her life has never been the same.

In a remarkable close encounter with a wild dolphin off the coast of Hawaii in 1996, she received a profound spiritual initiation.  When she returned to her home in the sacred red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, people she encountered began having spontaneous transformational experiences.  She discovered that She had become a vehicle for the energy and consciousness of the dolphins!

From that moment forward, her life has been spent in a fantastic exploration of this inter-dimensional, inter-species relationship.  This exploration extends to her healing and transformation work with clients, students, and podmates from around the world.

She has written a book about her 7-year journey of discovery with the dolphins, titled “DOLPHIN LOVE … From Sea to Land.”


In January 2003, the dolphins told her that the inner transformational journey that they guided her through was now complete, and it was time to begin initiating others to this unique spiritual path.  Dolphin Healing HeArts…A Gateway to the New Paradigm was born.  This school, described by the dolphins as an adventure in healing and consciousness, became the focus of her life, and her indescribable joy.

In November 2010, another momentous change happened in her work, and the Dolphin Attunement Journey was born. Now it is possible for podmates all over the world to receive these extraordinary gifts from the dolphins, without needing to travel.

It is an honor and privilege to join with the dolphins in their mission to bring greater joy, love, peace and play to humanity, and to Mother Earth.


David Rosenthal

David Rosenthal is Linda’s partner in this sacred work. In 1996, David and Linda met just a few hours before she received the message to go to Hawaii to swim with the wild dolphins.

David has led a varied life.  He started out to be a physicist.  But a series of paranormal and mystical experiences set him on a very different path.  He became a passionate student of psychology, philosophy, spirituality and mysticism.  This led him into a career teaching transformational seminars and trainings.  When Linda met him, he was working as a software architect, designing a software package that continues to be the leading system in its field, nationwide.  For many years, David’s work in the corporate world supported them and freed Linda to fully concentrate on my journey with the Dolphin Consciousness.

After Linda’s breakthrough happened in early 2003, David participated as a student in the very first Dolphin Healing HeArts pod.  By his Fourth Attunement, David’s passion for teaching rose to the surface.  It became clear to both of them that they were meant to teach the Dolphin Healing HeArts pods together.

David originated the concept of the Dolphin Life Skills.  When they teach together, this area is his specialty.  Much of the structure and curriculum of their school comes directly from information that David has channeled from his dolphin spirit guide, who calls himself “Archie”.

David’s years of experience supporting me through my own journey with the dolphins has given him unique preparation for supporting each student through their own process as they receive and integrate the Dolphin Attunements.
