I've had Living Waters Wellness in my heart and in my mind now, for a long, long time. Today, it's just the tiniest trickle emerging in the light of day - something one might not even notice, and just walk by. But it's a beginning, and for me, this is a precious moment.
Everyone has his or her own favorite image of water. Think for just a moment what yours is. I grew up with streams and running water, and so a cold stream running over stones makes a beautiful inner picture for me. But best of all is the source of such a stream - a spring, bubbling out of the earth. Something that seems to emerge from nowhere. Something perhaps quiet and gentle, but irrepressible. It just doesn't stop.
Could something similar come forth from us, bubbling out of us, creating life in us, in our world and our relationships ? My answer - and experience - is yes.
A question, a truly open question, kept and cultivated, can be a powerful force. For me a question that captured me and wouldn't let go, was this : " What is 'living water ' " ? What is it that will become in us " a well of living water, springing up to eternal life " ? This is where LIving Waters Wellness begins.
How does living water flow into and through us as human beings ? How does it flow out of us ? Among us ? Into our world ? How can we best honor and value it, and enhance its flow ? Living Waters Wellness is intended as a way to find answers to these question. And to be a vessel, a channel, a witness to this life.

Living Waters Wellness considers not just the health of the physical body, but our soul and spirit, our social forms, our environment - and as a matter of fact, our whole earth. It's a new website, and a work in progress - but by all means, have a look around !
