Wallace ‘J.’ Nichols, Ph.D. is the author of Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do.

Dr. Nichols explains the 6th annual Blue Mind Summit that he will host on May 18th-20th in Asilomar, California on the Monterey Peninsula “…where interdisciplinary professionals work at the intersection of brain science and conservation. This year’s summit will speak to the deep emotional connection we have with water and how the interplay directly impacts our lives.

World renowned writers, scientists, artists, athletes and academia will dive deeply into the exploration of the human brain and lives on water while tackling subjects rarely discussed in the world of conservation.
