This Is Your Brain On...Water

Dr. Wallace "J." Nichols is a scientist, wild water advocate, community organizer, author, and dad.

He takes a slow, collaborative approach with leaders in businesses, government, non-profits, and academia to inspire a deeper connection with nature and inventive solutions to pressing issues.

J knows that inspiration comes sometimes through adventures, or simply by walking and talking. Other times through writing, images, and art. Science and knowledge can also stoke our fires.

But he also knows that what really moves people is feeling part of and touching something bigger than ourselves.

Please have a look around the site and get in touch with any questions you may have.

If you're inspired to do so, consider supporting our global water advocacy work by becoming one of our LiVBLUE Angels or arranging a Blue Mind keynote or workshop. Or just slopping by the SLOWCOAST for some lunch. You never know what we might dream up.
