Support the Blue Mind Fund: Reconnecting People to Water

"Blue Mind is a fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water...you’ll read it once and then come back to it time and again..."  ~ Washington Post

Signed Blue Mind books from SLOWCOAST

"I do my best thinking in the water, whether it’s a hot bath, a swimming pool, or a lake. I’m clumsy on land, but in the water, I feel as graceful as a porpoise, and I need to swim every day." ~ Oliver Sacks

Dr. Wallace "J." Nichols is a scientist, wild water advocate, movement-maker, New York Times bestselling author, and dad.

He takes a slow, collaborative approach to influence business, government, non-profits, and academia, and inspire a deeper connection with nature, leading to inventive solutions to pressing issues.

J knows that inspiration comes sometimes through adventures, or simply by walking and talking. Other times through writing, images, and art. Science and knowledge can also stoke our fires.

But he also knows that what really moves people is feeling part of and touching something bigger than ourselves.

Please have a look around the site and get in touch with any questions you may have.

If you're inspired to do so, consider supporting our wild water advocacy work by contributing to the Blue Mind Fund or arranging a Blue Mind keynote or workshop. Just stopping by the SLOWCOAST for some lunch you never know what we might dream up.
