March 22nd 2021, World Water Day. A day to value water.
How have we been treating the water that quenches and cleanses, as it flows from source, through our bodies and back to source? Women have historically tended to this, our first medicine, that keeps us, and all life, alive. How are we tending to those women, be they our Ancestors, our partners in protection or within ourselves?
The world-over experiences droughts to floods from climate change, our freshwater polluted with cancer causing chemicals from ‘treatment’, extractive industry, food production, pharmaceutical waste and commodification.
Water is now on the stock market. Our most precious medicine has been relegated to the category of “resource” as if Water will continue to be available to and at human disposal having been commodified and abused. We see symptoms of patriarchy in our treatment of land water and our women—we feel it all.
How did we get here? And how can we find our way back to the knowledge we carry in our bones, in our blood, in our spirits?
Can the women and youth inspire people to rise fast enough to meet the sea levels as they rise?
Join Women of the Water, an international women’s water collective of activists, educators, ritualists, and artists, in this introductory workshop to explore healing our relationship;
with water, as both medicine and blessing;
with ourselves, as those responsible for regeneration;
and with each other, as no one can heal this culture alone.
In this two hour Work That Reconnects inspired workshop, we will address the dire health of water worldwide and connect to ancestors and future ones through the spirit of water for strength to continue our work.
Hosted by Rachel Marco-Havens, Community Design Consultant, Social Artist Water Protector and Board Member of Title Track Michigan and Emily Coralyne, facilitator of the Work That Reconnects, peace worker at Tamera Healing Biotope in Portugal, and Life Coach with Going Forth Coaching.
This is a FREE event and all participants will be invited to make a donation to Women of the Water, which will be redistributed to the facilitators.
Open to all gender expressions and identities.
