Marc Shargel's Appearance on the Energy Matters Podcast
Marc Shargel was recently interviewed by the hosts of the Energy Matters podcast. In their wide-ranging conversation, Marc talked about his long practice of meditation, discussed teaching others, and how his spiritual practice is connected to his love of the ocean and his conservation work.
Marc cites several of his favorite photos to illustrate what he talks about in the podcast. Look here for the "kelp cathedral," hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, whale sharks and the undulating curves of the sea.

"I've seen a lot of changes in Central California's ocean since I began diving here in 1978. I first took a camera underwater in 1982.
Since then I've been using images to communicate the beauty and fragility of our marine life to people who might
otherwise never know about it."
