MEET COURTNEY WARD
Partially based in Ponta Malongane, where it is said that heaven meets earth; Courtney guided Shakti Malan - founder of the Shakti Shiva Academy on her first life-changing encounter with the in-shore bottlenose dolphins of Malongane, Mozambique.
Essentially a performer in the great arts of the divine, Courtney is a talented artist, actor and musician. She is especially gifted in her spontaneous ability to apply her artistic gifts and musical talents to a group dynamic in aid of personal transformation and creativity. Since 1999 Courtney has worked passionately and intensively with the resident pod of Inshore Bottle Nose dolphins of Southern Mozambique as Halo Gaia’s owner, Ponta Malongane`s Ocean Safari guide, leading Dolphin Swim Facilitator and data collector.
Through her intimate relations with the dolphins, her love of people and her love of the ocean, Courtney offers an extraordinary Ocean Awareness program and together with Shakti Shiva Academy creates a unique annual dolphin swim retreat.
