“When you’re in the water freediving, nothing else exists but the present,” explains Pamela.
“The simple fact of just living the moment, being in the now, and to feel yourself, your entire body, your entire being, and to be conscious of that.”
“It’s the purest form of being of feeling, of living,” she continues.
“It’s the opportunity to get to know yourself, to feel your heart, to listen to your pulse while at the same time holding out knowing that it’s just a sensation.”
Pamela, of course, is Pamela Castellanos, one of our cherished and highly talented guides at Spearfishing Today. Recently, Pamela successfully completed her certification as a PADIfreedive instructor (insert applause).
As part of the activities held today as part of PADI Women’s Dive Day 2017, held in celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked Pamela to share her thoughts about the art of freediving and how it changed her life.
The result is a love letter to the sport of freediving.
