“Water is fluid, soft and yielding.  But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.  As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.  This is another paradox:  What is soft is strong.”  Lao-Tzu, 600BC

Water is life! 

Life came from water and life is sustained by water.  Without water there would be no food, no fish, no plants, no babies – no life.

At the heart of WATERSPIRIT is a spirituality that connects nature, especially water, with the sacred.  Water, as a sustainer of all life, is a sign of the presence of the holy moving through and nurturing all beings.  As a great connector, Earth’s water flows through the planet in a cycle that unites all of life.  As has been said, “My tears today may be your cup of tea tomorrow.”

In WATERSPIRIT, a reverence for water includes a commitment to preserve and protect this source and sustainer of life.  Programs, learning, reflection and ritual lead to action on behalf of water.
