Founder of Miracle Swimming, Dash first defined mindfulness for her adult swimming students in a visual way in 1983. The 5 Circles Spectrum of Mindfulness provides an infallible way to make learning inevitable and guaranteed for most people. Dash demonstrates the imperative use of mindfulness to be successful overcoming fear, and specifically, learning to swim as an afraid-in-water adult. Her system is outlined at 5CirclesTeachingMethod.com, MelonDash.com, and in her first posts at ThriveGlobal.com.
Dash is author of Conquer Your Fear of Water (2006), producer of The Miracle Swimmer DVD, and host of The Learn to Swim Show, 13 podcasts at melondash.com. She has spoken at national and international meetings to turn the ship around for adults who are afraid in water who have little chance of becoming safe in deep water in traditional swim classes. Five thousand adults have graduated from her program since 1983.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
