Kelly Slater: “I just had the most profound experience of my life!”
"Otherworldly!" says 11-timer…
Earlier today, the sinuous trail of surf tourism was exposed in a lovely piece that you can read here.
Of course, the upside of this sort of velvet colonisation is the fabulous places you can go and visit and surf and yoga and eat delicious non-meaty dinners and maybe even have an audience with God.
One month ago, Kelly Slater was a guest of the Rythmia resort, “the ultimate spiritual vacation located in Costa Rica, in an all-inclusive luxury resort” where “93.26% of our guests report a life-changing miracle during their stay.”
The resort offers to “awaken you to your highest potential through the Rythmia way program, ayahuasca ceremonies, yoga, metphysics classes, hydrocolonic cleanses, transformational breath work, massage and farm-to-table organic food.”
I got a miracle of information. The challenge and the goal now is to refresh to that knowledge and to use the what I experienced and got to understand from it to change my life and my world. I think it opened up some sort of doorway in my future.”
Shortly after his visit in November, Kelly appeared on a to-camera testimonial looking beatific and dressed in guru-chic beige. In an almost whisper he says, “I just had the most profound experience of my life. I literally decided to come here twelve hours before I came. It was something that was nagging at me for a few weeks beforehand, that this was something that could potentially change my life. I’ve had a lot of experience in my life. I’ve been all around the world… I’ve lived all around the world…and I’ve got to experience most worldly things. But…”
What miracle did occur?
“I don’t think I could explain unless we sat for a long time and you kinda understood what it is. It’s really bizarre. I would say I got a miracle of information and what you do with that is your own thing. So that’s the challenge and the goal now is to refresh to that knowledge and to use the what I experienced and got to understand from it to change my life and my world. I think it opened up some sort of doorway in my future.”
(And what do you think the miraculous information is? Something like the three secrets of Fatima where, in 1917, three Portuguese school girls were entrusted with apocalyptic secrets delivered in person by the Virgin Mary?)
Or even better?)
