Singing to Water
‘Singing to Water’ invites people to gather on the 11th of each month at 11am, to take care of our sacred waters and give them our love and appreciation, through song, poems and offerings..
Bringing our attention to the beauty and wisdom of water as it travels our world, renewing, revitalizing, and supporting all life so generously. Listening to what water has to say.
Let’s come together and sing our love and appreciation!
- Water is Life
- Water can hear you.
- Water holds memory.
- Water is the life blood of the earth.
- Water carries so many teachings.
- The ancestors can speak through water.
- Water is in us.
- Water is us.
- What we do to water wo do to life.
- Water loves to be sung to.
We will gather at various locations in and around Totnes, Devon – so do check in the day before via email or text for the meeting place, or see the FB event page. We will sing a few simple songs together as a group, and there will also be chance to offer individual songs or poems. NB You do not need to be a ‘singer’!
Children very welcome (but if your child becomes disruptive to hearing the songs, please distract them or take them a little further away to let off steam).
An open heart, and your souls’ love for the world.
An offering for the waters – flowers, seeds or other natural offering.
A song, a poem.
Maybe a drum, a rattle or an instrument.
A small container to take some water home for your altar, to speak and sing to between gatherings.
Snacks to share.

but an INITIATION to re-orient civilization towards beauty’
