Bobbie Merrill is a best-selling author; a prior contributor to an award-winning Relationship Column for the Honolulu Advertiser and a freelance Relationship columnist with her husband, Dr. Tom Merrill, for Cox News/NY Times. She is also a family therapist, parenting consultant, trauma specialist, and a professional speaker. 

Bobbie was honored in Honolulu Magazine at the height of her career as one of Honolulu’s most successful women. Now a grandmother and a conscious female voice, Bobbie is passionate about inspiring all of us to become our best selves and a kinder, more just, and joyful humanity and world. 

On her fiftieth birthday, Bobbie returned to her birthplace to swim with the Waianae spinners, making her among the first to swim with dolphins in the wild. She then went on to enjoy a decade-long journey of over two thousand hours of free swimming with dolphins and whales throughout the world. 

In this episode, Bobbie shares how the dolphins called to her and gave her comfort during the end of a marriage and taught her many life lessons in her over 2,000 hours of swimming with the Hawaiian spinner dolphins near Oahu.

You will hear how the dolphins playfully showed her how to stay in her heart, despite irritating situations around her. They gave her downloads of wisdom that turned into a powerful book, Compelling Conversations with Dolphins and Whales in the Wild. 

She also shares about the welcoming and gracious energy of a mother Humpback whale and her calf as well as a memorable and potentially life-threatening encounter with a male Humpback whale who taught her the power and danger of the mis-use of sound in the oceans.
