Caring for water orients us in a new and deep way to our spiritual, social, cultural, and ecological community, while also positioning us to develop supportive ties to others in the area to foster watershed health. When we care for our local watershed, we potentially promote awareness and action to ameliorate worldwide water justice issues, including those compounded by climate change and poverty. The two-hour workshop will include a description of watersheds, water rituals, information about local collaboration, and reflection on the meaning of “living water.”
All (no faith, or any faith) are welcome.
