Interviews

 

Today we’d like to introduce you to Prue Jeffries.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?

Water, nature, creativity, wellbeing and travel have been my greatest passions in life. I have been fortunate to be able to combine them all in various ways. In my high school years, I delved deep into poetry, metaphysics, and philosophy. I was happiest in the library reading David Bohm or an Auden poem and looking at an atlas. Reading Krishnamurti at 14 had a significant impact on me. At the same time I was immersed in art and photography, and playing many sports, but one – surfing started to take all my focus. I needed several outlets to balance the artistic, athletic, mental and spiritual dimensions of myself. I found surfing satisfied the artistic, the athletic and the spiritual through communing with nature and the ocean. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE

Saltwater High Podcast with Derek Dodds

In this episode, Prue Jeffries shares her pro surfing career with us and how water & nature support life, our health, and our well-being.
 

Prue Jeffries of Body of Wonder and Surf the Flow is a Craniosacral Teacher and Therapist, Continuum Teacher, Certified Massage Therapist, Registered Somatic Movement Educator, and founder of Flow Awareness™ (formerly Vital Dynamics).

Prue has always been a water person and explorer. She is a pioneer of women’s surfing with 15 years on the ASP World Championship Tour, now known as WSL, co-founded a women’s clothing line, was a writer and editorial consultant, and is now an avid nature photographer. She is also Creative Director for Watermark Arts, a somatic informed artistic endeavor.

Water, waveforms, and movement have been her life. Surfing is a spiritual, natural, and artistic endeavor that informs her deeply. She weaves experiential learning from nature and her body with the study of well-being, spiritual and somatic approaches for wholeness.

Right now, her focus is on the embodied knowing of ourselves as water and as nature—how that translates into the water being not only a metaphor but a conveyer for interconnection—shifting people’s capacity to be more humane towards life and nature and protect and regenerate our planet.

Wave Tribe’s mission is to create a symbiotic relationship between sport and planet. In our journey we invite like-minded surfers to envision a wave that is clean, clear, plastic free and that mirrors a society of people who recognize the intrinsic beauty of nature and the significance of doing the right thing.
