The power of the waves can open up our minds to a myriad of ideas.

Since ancient times we have accredited healing and transformational benefits to water. The Romans saw baths as an important aspect of cultural life, and Chinese traditional medicine incorporates water as a method of balancing the body to achieve physical harmony. Today we go to the sea or to the lakes for our vacations or build our homes on the water in search of calm, openness and clarity.
