The third annual Ocean of Gratitude Cruise departs Ft. Lauderdale on March 14 for 8 days of soul-stirring presentations and amazing spiritual awakenings punctuated by inspirational songs, spontaneous dances, and powerful practices.

The cruise visits the ports of Cozumel, Mexico where participants can zip through the jungle, snorkel in the ocean, or visit Mayan ruins; Limon, Costa Rica for kayaking in the rainforest or visiting a coffee, banana or pineapple plantation; and Colon, Panama and a trip to an indigenous Indian tribe, a mountain bike ride in the Panamanian forest, or an opportunity to join a peacekeeping native drum circle (facilitated by Christine Stevens, Ocean of Gratitude presenter).

Dr. Beckwith, a featured teacher in 'The Secret,' guest of Larry King, and founder of the 10,000 member Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles, is joined by his wife, Rickie Byars Beckwith , the spirit-sparking singer, songwriter & composer. The couple is famous for making beautiful music together, lifting up the soul and inspiring potent possibilities through music, meditation, movement and their own personal magic.
