"Ocean Robbins is a refreshing and inspiring voice of wisdom for our times.  He has been a luminary for changemakers
of all ages for more than twenty years, and his presentations combine youthful passion with profound insights.  
The more people who experience his work, the more hope we can have for our future."

— Marianne Williamson, Author, A Return To Love

"Ocean Robbins, you have become a watershed of a new, worldwide vision. We want to thank you for sharing your singular and prophetic insights, your laughter, values, dreams, heart, mind and prayers. You have called us to foster a deep longing and courage, evoking and calling forth the wisdom in all of us, in a deep, deeply human way. You have called us awake to remind us that human beings are here for conscious thriving and are each called to some unique greatness.  We thank you."

"Ocean Robbins gave an inspiring talk at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Luis Obispo, and the service received an overwhelmingly positive response. Ocean shared his own fascinating family story as part of a very moving talk on self realization and fulfilling life purpose through social/environmental justice work and community building.  His message is both spiritual and action-oriented, which is doubly appreciated.  He has a beautiful presence which is warm, authentic, and accessible.  I highly recommend him as a speaker on spiritual growth, community building, and social/environmental justice."
