SONGS OF THE WATERS – CELEBRATION OF LIFE
Water is the source of creation. Life was born in the waters and is being preserved by it. We humans begin our life journey in the water of the womb, and it is the element of water that nourishes us with creativity, flow, softness and effortless strength.
This musical water ceremony is a celebration of life and an homage to the element of water and the relationship between humans and water. Water-related heart songs and mantras from different traditions and languages will be blended with an interactive water blessing ritual, inspirational poetry, prayers and embedded dance performances embodying the element of water.
As we honor the water in and around us, we tap into a collective state of oneness, gratitude and trust.
