If you’ve spent any time in our lounge, you’ve probably picked up a copy of “Blue Mind” by Wallace “J” Nichols which we have available for purchase. I first learned about the Blue Mind movement when J spoke at the 2015 Float Conference, and I immediately connected with the message. Living by the beach in South Florida and formerly an Ocean Rescue EMT, I’ve spent countless hours soaking in the benefits that the great blue sea has to offer. I met with J in the break out session following his presentation and shared stories about collecting sea beans from the shoreline and dreaming about the infinite miles they may have traveled before finding it’s way to me. I’m very excited that his 8th Annual Blue Mind Summit: Water Is Medicine is being held in Miami at the brand new Frost Science Museum where Dr. Justin Feinstein of the Laureate Institute Of Brain Research will represent the “Floating Is Medicine” segment. will If you’d like to attend in person, you can register here. If you’re unable to attend but would like to tune in virtually, you can register for online access here. If you do head down, make sure to say “hi!” -Matt
