Every drop of water that makes our Earth the majestic blue marble, is here since our planet’s birth. 4 billion years of liquid memory to which we are connected, by the inner ocean which makes up 2/3 of our bodies. OceanMinded aims to inspire, to create adventures with a purpose and to connect you to our oceans via Sailing Expeditions, Freediving and Projects that help to protect our living blue planet.
Momo (Markus) // Founder & Happiness Manager of OceanMinded
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
I am a sailor, freediver, rescue swimmer and ocean fanatic. I have a relentless desire to live connected to nature, to help restore the health of our planet, to make a positive impact upon peoples’ lives and to enjoy the community of likeminded salty souls. If you feel the urge to participate in those adventures with purpose, welcome aboard.
Freediving is a beautiful and very personal journey into the blue. We connect to the ocean, our body, our breath, confront fears, physical & mental limitations, and eventually learn to accept and overcome them.
Sailing on the other hand is really about learning to live together, to plan ahead considering external and internal limits, monitor progress and adjust according to the circumstances. But above all, to enjoy the journey...
“Mar” // Lifecoach & Office Clown
Although she is not too much into Freediving, Mar is a Master in instant relaxation whenever she wants. Her superpower is that she is always happy with the little things in life, and is able to remind me every day to do the same. Likes to teach perfect companionship, trust & cooperation. Furthermore she is in charge to protect the OceanMinded basecamp when I am at sea 🙂
OceanMinded Principles & Values
- Trust & Cooperation
Let’s forget the competitive world – The air we breathe, the water we drink and the earth we stand on connect us to all other beings on this planet. Nature is cooperation!
Life can be so simple once we choose to eliminate the non-essential.
Out on the ocean you can decelerate, calm down, focus on the simple facts of life and feel the connection to your surroundings.
Imagine if instead of only limiting the negative impacts of our everyday actions on our environment and ourselves, we choose to empower positive, regenerative action and become informed advocates of our life-support system called earth.
- Self-awareness & Personal Growth
Every day is a new opportunity to become more self-aware, integrate what you’ve learned and use it for the greater good.
