SCIENCE SUNDAY
November 16, 2014
BLUE MIND: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do.

Wallace J. Nichols, Ph.D.
Research Associate, California Academy of Sciences
Co-founder, OceanRevolution.org

Join marine scientist and author Wallace J. Nichols for a conversation on the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Combining cutting edge research with compelling personal stories, Nichols shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. Blue Mind not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water – it provides a paradigm shifting ‘blueprint’ for a better life.

Book signing immediately following lecture. BLUE MIND is available in our Ocean Discovery Shop.
