About this title

Synopsis:

This book provides an overview of how to establish water-human relationships by anchoring readers to a deeper understanding of the important cultural and psychological roles played by water in all our lives in terms of history, architecture, nature writing, art, environmental science and engineering, etc. By learning about how to deeply experience water through adventure, joy, contact and contemplation, readers gain wisdom about how to preserve untainted water in their own lives.

From the Publisher:

This is a book about water; not so much about what it is, though there is some of that present, but rather, what it does. Specifically, what water does to those individuals who allow themselves to enter into a close relationship with it. Deep Immersion: The Experience of Water provides an overview of how to establish water-human connections by anchoring readers to a deeper understanding of the important roles played by water in all our lives. The idea, always swirling just beneath the surface throughout the book, is that the more we learn about and experience water, the more we are moved to give ourselves over to it - to deeply and profoundly immerse ourselves in its physcial essence and spiritual nature, and in so doing, reciprocate by preserving its presence in our enriched lives, untainted.

This seminal book is one of the most informative works to ever address how water permeates all of human existence, and is worthy of placement on the shelf beside such other notable volumes as Gaston Bachelard's Water and Dreams, Theodor Schwenk's Water, the Element of Life, Ivan Illich's H2O and the Waters of Forgetfulness and Charles Sprawson's Haunts of the Black Masseur: The Swimmer as Hero.
