Here's a link to some of the books and book chapters I've written on Amazon.com.
#LiveBlue: Some refer to #BlueMind as a “movement”, a word that's thrown around a lot these days, losing much of its original meaning. Blue Mind has also been referred to as a "movement of movements" or a "groundswell".
While there are many powerful and necessary movements underway, a new hashtag does not a movement make. The word "campaign" doesn't quite suit either. Maybe this is just a boring argument over semantics, but we think words have power.
So, we refer to what we're creating as "The Blue Mind Groundswell" made up of the physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual & even virtual components of our relationship with water. The new story of water and oceans' true value is reaching lots of people around the world who can use some more blue (and less red mind) in their lives.
Get in touch if you'd like to bring the Blue Mind Groundswell to your community, team, organization, business, campaign or movement!
Together, all of our experiences create a global groundswell!
"Experience is the knowledge or mastery of an event or subject gained through involvement in or exposure to it.
Terms in philosophy such as "empirical knowledge" or "a posteriori knowledge" are used to refer to knowledge based on experience. A person with considerable experience in a specific field can gain a reputation as an expert. The concept of experience generally refers to know-how or procedural knowledge, rather than propositional knowledge: on-the-job training rather than book-learning.
The interrogation of experience has a long term tradition in continental philosophy. Experience plays an important role in the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard. The German term Erfahrung, often translated into English as "experience", has a slightly different implication, connoting the coherency of life's experiences.
Certain religious traditions (such as Buddhism, Surat Shabd Yoga, mysticism and Pentecostalism) and educational paradigms with, for example, the conditioning of military recruit-training (also known as "boot camps"), stress the experiential nature of human epistemology. This stands in contrast to alternatives: traditions of dogma, logic or reasoning. Participants in activities such as tourism, extreme sports and recreational drug-use also tend to stress the importance of experience.
The history of the word experience aligns it closely with the concept of experiment.
The word "experience" may refer, somewhat ambiguously, both to mentally unprocessed immediately perceived events as well as to the purported wisdom gained in subsequent reflection on those events or interpretation of them.
Some wisdom-experience accumulates over a period of time, though one can also experience (and gain general wisdom-experience from) a single specific momentary event.
One may also differentiate between physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, vicarious and virtual experience(s)."
