What: Serenade the Sea...
Why: To honor the waters with your joy, your art, your time, your presence, and your appreciation!!
When: This coming Monday, and every 3rd Monday, from 4 pm to 5 pm.
Where: At the Maritime Center, Down Town, where the boat ramp, the steps by the water, and the "Salmon Club" sign are.
How: You look for the blue scarf (or ribbons) floating in the air, tied to the rails of the steps by the boat ramp at the Maritime Center. The scarf (or ribbons) are there to confirm that we are sitting close by, likely in that corridor by the stairs, facing the sea.
The scientific base of the event:
Japanese Scientist, Dr. Masaru Emoto, ("The Message from Water" INSB- 939098-00-1) stumbled into what seemed to him a set of changes in the molecules of water he was studying, when the water in question, was exposed to vibrations, chemicals, words, sounds, thoughts, and even emotions.
Surprised, he started what would become his life-long scientific exploration; and through powerful scientific special equipment, and with rigorous scientific exactness, he, and his team, started registering the "apparent reactions" of water molecules to different changes in energy around them - changes such as those produced by exposure to chemical imbalances, like acid rain; geological changes, such as earthquakes; nuclear radiation; or variations in (air pressure) sounds ranges, such as in explosions, music, words; and much more subtle different qualities of energy, such as emotions like anger, laughter, appreciation, hatred. The results are astounding and expressed visually in his 5 books.
In this dear Quimper Peninsula, a glorious part of the magnificent Olympic Peninsula, water cuddles and surrounds us and supports us and defines us.
Water is all around us, and all within us, in our precious blood, tears, sweat, organs, tissues, bones and more!.
This is the importance of WATER in your earthly life (because 3/4ths of the Earth is 75% water); this is the importance of WATER in your health (because your body is 75% water too.) Just join our group to "Serenade the Sea"!
You come WHAT FOR?: To further learn about our human inseparable relationship to water. This month through:
Mandala Meditation (We'll take 1 of the pictures in the book, and we each will read, and meditate on it - and the wonder of water as we each fill up a mandala with words of appreciation for the miracle of water!.)
Conversation (Conversations about what new facts have we learned and appreciated from the water this past month?
For your joy and comfort...
WHAT TO BRING:
A grateful heart
A full presence.
An unhurried schedule for your sake, and to HONOR THE WATER - found in you and beyond you.
Curious hands, nose, tongue, ears, and eyes
Be ready to sing, dance or find poetry -because it's all there!.
An old small towel (that you can place on the floor and easily wash)
A small cushion/pillow (that you place on top of towel to sit upon) or
A folding chair, and a small hardback book (to, perhaps, serve you as a desk for our art project this Monday!)
Raincoats and umbrellas
Warm layers of clothes, AND wind-breakers!
WHAT NOT TO BRING:
Don't bring ANY hurries. All hurries and all other appointments must be left behind to truly be present during this appreciation of the water.
To help each other remember to appreciate the water wherever you encounter it: Whether you find it in your food, the Sea, the faucet, the dew, the tear, the rain; if we remind each other to do that - whether alone or in a group - we are on track! - and if you can't join us this month, perhaps you'll join us next month!
