GGI PRESENTS: "Courage By the Sea: The Minds of Heroes"
Friday, September 27, 2013 from 5:15 PM to 7:15 PM (PDT)
Join us September 27th as we share stories of Courage and how to grow it.
Hey, did you know . . .
Courage is something that we can cultivate and grow on physical and neurological levels.
We use the ocean to help us heal our brains/minds.
Ocean heros, biologists, surfers, neuroscientists and others are urging us to believe it: being by/around/immersed within the Ocean grows our inner strength
Inventio!s in the conversation include:
M.A. Greenstein, Ph.D, Founder of GGI/Inventio!Conversations
Wallace J. Nichols Ph.D
Dr. September Williams
