"Water. The Fountain of Youth. Better skin. Less cravings. More energy. Better digestion. Less headaches. Higher metabolism. Better Mood. And an ability to concentrate more. That’s just from drinking it.  Getting out and playing in a big ‘ol body of it is another ballgame." -Author unknown

Through artful collaboration, engaging summits, and revolutionary research Blue Mind is changing the way we think about water and ourselves.

Coming in Summer 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. Little, Brown & Company. New York, NY. >>>

Blue Mind links neuroscience with nature in profoundly important new ways. The result is an exciting, fast-growing new field we call Neuroconservation.

But the benefits of this inquiry extend to public health, education, business, coastal planning, travel, real estate, and most importantly rebuilding our personal, emotional connection with and restoring healthy waterways.

Blue Mind helps everyone working with and for our blue planet to do their jobs better by providing deeper insights into the science of "our brains on water". We expand the "ecosystem services" conversation to include the vast array of cognitive values and benefits offered by clean, healthy waterways.

Each year we hold a Blue Mind Summit, bringing together top neuroscientists, oceanographers, explorers, economists, educators, and artists to consider new questions about the "human brain on water".

In 2011, the first Blue Mind Summit was held in SanFrancisco and in 2012 the second was held on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

We held Blue MInd 3 May 30th, 2013 on Block Island. You can review the live stream HERE.
