An evening of ritual and reflection to celebrate Autumn’s bounty and beauty while reflecting on the deeper meaning of the season of cooling breezes and lengthening nights. The celebration will include live music by mystical folk-pop duo Tommy and Abby Anton. Refreshments to follow.
On Friday, September 20, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. Waterspirit will be present in New York City and New Brunswick. Contact us if you’d like to go with us.
Waterspirit warmly invites you to visit us during the Monmouth County Eco-Tour 2019. This multi-site tour will guide visitors to local places that are practicing sustainability and creating resilience in the community while encouraging and inspiring others. At our headquarters, Waterspirit will offer contemplative prayer and guided meditation for the Earth sessions every half hour from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., with a special water ritual at 1:30 p.m. Please come sit with us in communion for as long as you would like.
Weather permitting, we will sit outdoors in the Oak Grove. In case of rain or extreme heat, we will move inside the Sanctuary. Updates will be posted to our Facebook event page.
This is a free event; donations are welcome.
More information on the Monmouth County Eco-Tour is available at www.mocoecotour.com and on their Facebook page.
Waterspirit is hosting a watercolor competition as part of the CREATE Core Courage art for social justice event.
We invite artists of all ages to use watercolors to express the importance of clean, safe water. Paintings might, for example, highlight issues of concern—places where water has not been respected and cared for—in order to raise awareness. Paintings might instead highlight the artist’s connection with water, like favorite places remembered or the brighter future we are working toward. Perhaps the painting moves beyond narratives of utopia and dystopia entirely. Let your creativity flow!
Winners will have their artwork featured at the CREATE Core Courage show in October.
To enter, submit a digital representation (high-resolution photograph) via the submission link on our CREATE Core Courage page. Pieces must be available for display at the CREATE Core Courage event in late October. Submissions are due by September 1, 2019.
If watercolor is not your preferred medium of expression, please take a look at the other calls for artwork on the CREATE Core Courage homepage.
