The Ocean is Alive: Re-visioning our Relationship with the Living Ocean

Published in April 2016, Glenn’s latest book is first and foremost a celebration of the Ocean in all her living splendour and it invites the reader to step beyond the science and plunge into the depths of ‘Ocean Consciousness’.

“……. it’s clear that humanity must change its collective relationship to the Ocean. If we have a clear vision of what we want this relationship to look like, then every one of our individual actions has the potential to create a ripple that will spread and grow into the collective tsunami of change we so desperately need. In re-visioning our relationship with the Ocean we need not be confined by the limitations of our current worldview, but rather, we are free to dream a new reality, one that we can then act upon to bring into existence. 

…….. Our new relationship with the Ocean would be one of humility, in which we pay homage to her greater wisdom and understand that our true wealth lies not in her exploitation, but in her continued healthy functioning.”

Available at selected outlets and worldwide through amazon and affiliated sites – in paperback and kindle versions.  Prices are roughly equivalent to $16.00US for the print version and $5.48US for the kindle.
