Into the Blue Mind - A Health Explored Webinar

Can water heal?

Why are we drawn to water? Is it simply a view of a beach, or does it go further than that? We ask the question - does being close to or in water actually improve our health?

Join us for this first webinar in Health Explored, a new series presented by Memorial University's Dr. Mike Wahl. Learn about a therapy program from New Zealand that incorporates surfing, nature and good conversation; discover why water is sacred in Maori culture; and explore the insights on the healing power of water in the work of NY Times best-selling author Dr. Wallace J. Nichols!

Each episode in this series features a 20-minute presentation by Dr. Wahl, followed by a 20 minute Q&A session.
