Wednesday, Aug 13, 6pm EDT: Mitchell's guest this evening is author of Blue Mind: How Water Makes You Happier, More Connected and Better at What You Do , Wallace J. Nichols.  

This book draws together the psychological, health & spiritual importance of water in our lives, from surviving to thriving, from relaxation to creativity.  

J. Nichols culls from several domains, from environmental thinking to neuroscience.

His research and expeditions have taken him to coasts and waterways across North, Central and South America, to Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe where he continually finds that the emotional connection to waters of all kinds--rather than force of finacial gain--is what keeps his colleagues and collaborators working hard to understand and restore our blue planet.

He has authored and co-authored more than 50 scientific papers and reports and his work has been broadcast on NPR, BBC, PBS, National Geographic and Animal Planet and featured in Time, Newsweek, GQ, Outside Magazine, Fast Company, Scientific American and New Scientist, among others Purchase Dr. Nichols' Books

Lately J and his team are working on the Blue Mind Collective, merging the fields of cognitive science and aquatic exploration, and sharing their findings across many diverse sectors of society with the goal of increasing appreciation for healthy oceans and waterways.

Join Mitchell in his dialogue with J. Nichols about the interface of water, neuroscience, health, creativity and well-being.
