Water Is Medicine: Blue Mind 8 Summit Is Coming To Miami

Courtesy of WOWSA, Miami, Florida.

Open water swimmers know water functionally serves as medicine. It is good for the body, mind and soul.

The 8th Annual Blue Mind Summit, hosted by Wallace J. Nichols, will feature leading researchers and practitioners from all over the world who are bridging science, ancient wisdom, and real world solutions to examine water as medicine.

Scheduled for October 4th 2018 this year's summit can be seen both live and online. It offers two opportunities to join us in the discussion of this important topic.

1. Attend live in Miami, Florida at the Frost Museum of Science where Blue Mind leaders examine the health benefits of water and explore ways to communicate the cognitive, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual benefits of keeping it healthy. The program includes blueminded films, a full day of interviews, and one-on-one engagement with like-minded attendees.

2. Participate in the online Blue Mind 8 Online Summit, a virtual classroom designed to reach a global audience. Gather friends and colleagues and create a mini version of the summit or simply watch from anywhere to gain access to all of the films, interviews and a digital download of the workbook to allow for a clear understanding of each topic.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. 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. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

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...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
