"I've always felt my best when I was near, in, at, or on water... Blue Mind isn't about what we're adding, it's about what we're removing."
~Wallace J. Nichols

Dr. Wallace "J" Nichols, called “Keeper of the Sea" by GQ Magazine and “a visionary" by Outside Magazine is an innovative, silo-busting, entrepreneurial scientist, movement maker, renown marine biologist, voracious Earth and idea explorer, wild water advocate, bestselling author, sought after lecturer, and fun-loving Dad. He also likes turtles (a lot).

In this engaging interview MG and Dr. J cover all sorts of ground from creativity and happiness theories to even a bit of Shakespeare.

Wallace moved from New York to Chicago and ultimately received his Ph.D. in Tuscon — just a hop and skip to Mexico's shores where he studied sea turtles.

"This was the book I really wanted to read but I couldn't find anywhere. Ultimately, I tried to get a mentor of mine to write it, although his reply was, 'great idea! You write it!'"

Blue Mind is much bigger than just the ocean. Blue mind is a state of mind and originates from many sources; showers, lakes rivers pools waterfalls, slides, ocean.

Science tells us that anyone can get their "Blue Mind" on anywhere "virtually" just by looking at film, photography, even hearing sounds of water can help us enter Blue Mind.

When you consider that we're actually seventy-plus percent water and our brains even more so, there is a basic, natural affinity that is worth exploring and really understanding.

Enjoy the show!
