Ten Ways You Can Take Action For The Ocean...


Joshua Sam Miller/Founder, Executive Producer

My Inspiration: I grew up feeling connected to the ocean as a child.  I always remember that special feeling of being totally at peace underwater.  After a decade of wanderlust,

I saw firsthand that our oceans are suffering from many kinds of pollution on an unprecedented scale.  Simultaneously, I realized that we as human beings are experiencing a mental health crisis, with society only getting more fast-paced and disconnected from the natural world. ​

On January 1, 2019, I was sitting on the coast of California looking at breaking waves and realized I must do more to protect the sea. 

The next month during a yoga workshop in Santa Cruz, California, I met Dr. John Ryan from the Monterey Bay Aquatic Research Institute and first heard recordings of humpback whales.  "At that moment, I realized that more people must hear these recordings, and Sounds of the Ocean was born."

What is it about the sounds of whales that is so calming?

The whale makes a deep, drawn-out sound that is long and slow, has a variety of pitch levels, and is repeated in patterned sequences. Because of these qualities, it is an excellent setting for relaxation. In addition, some connect it with the peace of being near the water.

At what frequency do whales engage in social interaction?

The auditory repertoire of baleen whales includes moans, grunts, thumps, and knocks with extremely low frequencies (between 20 and 200 Hz), chirps, screams, whistles, and songs with much higher frequencies (beyond 1000 Hz). The "songs" that humpback whales generate are composed of a succession of repeating sound units with a frequency range of up to 8,000 hertz.

Do whales communicate with one another?

Clans, in a way, speak a variety of distinct dialects. The whales can also recognize one another by distinctive click patterns, which appear to function similarly to names. They begin by babbling clicks as youngsters until they pick up their family's repertoire, similar to how humans learn the language. This is how they learn their codas.

Do whales have emotional lives?

The discovery of spindle cells in certain species of whales and dolphins' brains provides strong evidence that these species may be capable of experiencing complex emotions such as empathy and that this emotion may provide an important evolutionary advantage for highly social species.

One important principle I try to accomplish is to take complex ideas about meditation and the not-so-well understood meditation principles to help you understand how they can fit into your life.

To your success in meditation!
