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. 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, educators and artists to consider new questions about the "human brain on water".
Contact us if you are interested in developing Blue Mind training, workshops, retreats or inviting a keynote from Dr. Nichols.
