IN HIS BOOK DEEP: Free Diving, Renegade Science, and What The Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves, American journalist James Nestor says, “the ocean is the last truly quiet place on earth.” To venture 80 meters below the surface without oxygen is a deep dive into ourselves—and it all begins with learning how to hold your breath.
