Allow things to unfold and you will find your purpose in life | Peggy Oki | TEDxQueenstown

  • Published on Apr 27, 2016
  • With an appreciation of flow and motion Peggy's life has been always been driven by passion. From surfing and skateboarding to the intimate appreciation what she calls the 'Cetacean Nation'. Discovering the transformative force of participation artwork through her Origami Whales project was the first step to realising that passion could be harnessed, amplified and ultimately inspire for a deeper purpose.
    Surfer, Skateboarder, Artist and Activist.
    Once the only female member of the famous Zephyr Skateboard team from documentary 'Dogtown and Z-Boys': Peggy’s love of the outdoors inspires her to travel worldwide in search of good surf. In 2004, she founded the Origami Whales Project to raise awareness about commercial whaling. She has also developed the Whales and Dolphins Ambassador Program and led campaigns such as ‘Let’s Face It’, which petitions to save New Zealand’s critically endangered Maui’s dolphins and Hector’s dolphins.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    Beautiful. So true. Sometimes we try so hard to find our purposes in life, instead of just being calm, follow our hearts, take the cues endowed to us along the path, without questioning too much

      Because we don’t want to be poor. It’s wonderful to just want to take the cues but not at the risk of homelessness starvation etc. they told us to find out what we like and try to make money off of it.

    I really don’t get how us, as one of the millions of species this beautiful planet has, focus on destroying instead of living together and building together. We have to spread love and peace. Let’s have a beautiful place to live in like we did millions of years ago. Where we depended on one another to survive. We are all connected.

    I was also a female surfer/ skateboarder in Santa Monica a few years prior to the Z-boys. I also am an artist that does animation. I had a dream last night where I was in a boat trying to save whales and then went to a circus trying to help elephants escape! I stumbled upon this video after having a pity party about my future, dusted off my tears trying to embrace my inner dolphin!!
