About the Book

Good health is something we all aspire to, but it’s so much more than just being free of disease. A perfectly functioning body, tranquil mind, and vibrant spirit working together harmoniously create the joy and happiness that put the good in good health and the worth into a life worth living.
Our Inner Ocean describes ancient and new holistic modalities of practitioner-applied bodywork and revitalizing self-care practices. These illuminate our human potential and awaken our ability to attain and maintain perfect health and well-being. These modalities act as a springboard from which to dive into our inner ocean—the realm of wisdom within that is entered by making the body, breath, and energy our allies. This mystical space of awareness, intuition, peace, and love can become the resting place of the spirit, subtly working its magic on ourselves and others.
Bodywork has long been recognized as a way to help people feel better physically, but the magic of touch can also help us tap in to the wisdom of the body, discover the power of the energy that permeates it, and evoke its innate healing ability. Self-care practices such as yoga, qi gong, breathwork, and meditation help us become our own healers. When we pass through these portals into the inner ocean, we can reduce stress and pain, release blockages, prevent and resolve dysfunctions, and ignite our spiritual nature. And in doing so, we make the world a better place.

About the Author

LeCain W. Smith learned early in life that his personal path to awakening was through bodywork and the breath. He has since spent untold hours on a massage table, carrying out “experiential research” under the hands of many skillful practitioners. He has also been the grateful recipient of generous instruction in yoga, qi gong, and breathwork practices. In between, he managed to fit in a six-year circumnavigation of the globe on his sailboat, write two books on nautical themes, produce a video about his travels, and, as a licensed sea captain for more than forty years, teach others maritime skills. “Captain Lee,” as friends around the world know him, returned from his adventures on the world’s oceans committed to diving into his inner ocean, that realm of innate wisdom he knew he could enter by making the body and breath his partners in discovery. Although he is not a practitioner of any specific modality, his heartfelt desire to help others experience true healing inspired him to make a lengthy research trip around the United States, interviewing practitioners and developers and uncovering hidden gems of bodywork and breathwork modalities. He returned to gather all the information he had collected over a lifetime of experiences on land and sea—holistic healing methods, energy medicine, and revitalizing self-care practices—into the present volume. If this endeavor changes the life of only one person, he will consider it a success. A Maine native, this sea captain, weather intuitive, yacht surveyor, and carpenter now spends most of his time on Maine’s downeast coast, although the siren song of travel is hard to resist. He is always ready to hop on a massage table at a moment’s notice or share his treasure chest of information.
