Marine biologist, activist, community organizer and author Wallace J. Nichols describes the awe and wonder of water.
"Turns out that neuropsychologists tell us that awe moves us from a me to a we perspective...When we're near the water and when we're in the water we are a better version of ourselves. That awe and wonder and passion takes over."
This clip was taken from Wallace's plenary talk at the 2014 Bioneers National Conference. His full talk can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/DaCStSQ3B8Y.
