Blue Mind 7: The Seven Ages Of Water

Courtesy of Blue Mind Life, Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

The 7th Annual Blue Mind Summit in Wisconsin will be held on April 4th - 6th, available in person or via a live webcast.

Blue Mind 7: The Seven Ages of Water is the 7th annual convening of interdisciplinary professionals working at the intersection of brain science and conservation as brain scientists, oceanographers, explorers, educators, psychologists, and artists assemble to consider the deep connection to the planet as well as the cognitive, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual benefits of keeping it healthy.

Dr. Wallace J Nichols explains, "This year's summit will dive deep into our lifelong connection to water and how it directly intersects each stage of our lives. This will be reflected in the exploration of the first two stages of life, defined by Birth and Play, and the last two, Ebb & Flow and Death as well as our active, productive, and reproductive adult years, when we become The Lover, The Fighter, and The Justice. Seeing our lives through these overlapping stages and the abundant universal lens of water provides fascinating insights into how to live better, healthier, more productive, and fulfilling lives.

The conversations experienced will be as enlightening as they are inspiring and the connections made at Blue Mind summits are often lifelong bonds
."

At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
