Seen from space, the oceans define our planet. They are vast almost beyond our ability to imagine, dwarfing the continents on which we spend our lives. To many of us oceans are another world, unvisited and strange. This book opens that world up and invites us in to share in its marvels and mysteries.

In Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White takes readers across the globe to discover the science and spirit of ocean tides. In the Arctic, White shimmies under the ice with an Inuit elder to hunt for mussels in the dark cavities left behind at low tide; in China, he races the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five-foot tidal bore that crashes eighty miles up the Qiantang River; in France, he interviews the monks that live in the tide-wrapped monastery of Mont Saint-Michel; in Chile and Scotland, he investigates the growth of tidal power generation; and in Panama and Venice, he delves into how the threat of sea level rise is changing human culture—the very old and very new. Tides combines lyrical prose, colorful adventure travel, and provocative scientific inquiry into the elemental, mysterious paradox that keeps our planet’s waters in constant motion. Photographs, scientific figures, line drawings, and sixteen color photos dramatically illustrate this engaging, expert tour of the tides.

Yemoja/Olokun is the name of two Spiritual Forces in the West African religious tradition called "IFA" The word Yemoja is an elision of the Yoruba Oriki (praise name) "Yeye mo oja" which means Mother of Fish." The word "Olukun" is a contraction of Olohun meaning "owner" and "okun" meaning "ocean." Both of these words are the names given to describe a complex convergence of Spiritual Forces that are key elements in the IFA concept of fertility. Those Spiritual Forces that form the foundation of Yemoja and Olokun's role in the Spirit Realm relate to the relationship between water and birth.

This book is the story of sailing across the ocean from Guam to San Francisco on our wonderful sailboat, the "Spirit of the Wind", a forty-one foot Taiwan-built Ketch designed by William Garden. A group of twenty-something kids went to Guam looking for the meaning of life, bought a boat, fixed it up, learned to sail across the ocean. It was a beautiful and spiritual journey while at times was totally and completely terrifying. It introduced me to the South Pacific Islands and the wonderful and gracious people there; it was truly "A Paradise." The warm trade winds that I can feel sometimes in my dreams, the feel and sounds of the wind in the sails and moving through fear. I learned to improvise in the moment, how to deal with life then there was no land for weeks on end with just the horizon all around as if we were sailing on a mirror. It introduced me to the wonders of the ocean and its inhabitants. This trip changed my life and what I thought the world was. It enabled me to see, feel and do things that I didn't know I was capable of. It was a serious lesson in being with three other people, all men, in a forty foot sailboat with very little privacy. It taught me that the weather goes on; it doesn't help to pray for it to change and is bigger than us. It was transformational in so many ways, facing death almost daily.

‘The Ocean of God’conveys the proposition that the future of religions, if they will not want to contribute to the destruction of humanity, will become transreligious. Based on the assumption that the spiritual impulse of humanity cannot simply be eradicated, religiosity will persist in transreligious forms, as secularizations, naturalizations and transhumanist dreams only envision such transformations, but fall short in their ability to replace the force of spirituality to further civilized peace of human existence on Earth and its future in evolutionary, ecological and cosmological dimensions. In relating the contributions of religious pluralism to the concept of the unity of religions, which have arisen in this “new axial age” for overcoming the checkered history of religions in furthering peace, the program of a polyphilic pluralism with its transreligious discourse, based on the insight of the fundamental relativity of (religious) truth and the special contributions of process philosophy and theology as well as the Bahá'í universe of thought, analyses and projects a new religiosity or spirit enabling religions to overcome their deepest motives of strife and warfare.
