Part poetic memoir, part self-help, this book follows Easkey Britton’s journey in life: she is an Irish marine social scientist with a life-long passion for surfing and has continued in so many moments in her life to be called back to the ocean. The book poses questions about how we live and connect with the world and this encourages the reader to think more deeply about our habitat and the water that surrounds us. Water has the power to heal and restore health and wellbeing if we are open to being connected to it. The multisensory qualities of the sea will allow us to experience the world more intimately which helps to increase happiness and lower the risk of anxiety and depression. The chapters are beautifully opened with various poetry and drawings from the author herself.
