Why Clear Blue Mind

“A human being is a spatially and temporally limited piece of the whole, what we call the “universe.” He experiences himself and his feelings as separate from the rest, an optical illusion of his consciousness. . . Not nurturing the illusion but only overcoming it gives us the attainable measure of inner peace.

—Albert Einstein

Because neuroplasticity teaches us that we can re-wire our brains for calm, clarity, connection to our natural world, and even joy!

Blue Mind is a mildly meditative state characterized by peacefulness, unity or oneness, a sense of well-being, happiness, and overall satisfaction with life at this moment. The neuroscience of Blue Mind shows us how being near, in, on, or underwater can make us happier, healthier, feel more connected, focused, and creative.

It is undeniable that many of us live in a state of continuous distraction and disconnection in today’s fast-paced world. Recognizing that our lives are part of a vast natural system can help relieve these stressors.  We humans need to connect to something outside ourselves, something bigger than we are, something more transcendent and universal.

The very essence of Blue Mind is the ability to recognize this greater whole. Feeling connected to our natural world evokes feelings of awe, wonder, gratitude, and even humility.  As we become attuned to the immensity and intimacy of it all, vitality and meaning are born.
