Today is also the International Earthdance for world peace. This year’s them is H2Om (Honoring the Waters): Healing the Earth’s water with sound and intention. Over the centuries, Scientists and mystics have honored water’s sacred and restorative properties. It is increasingly evident that this precious resource is now critically endangered. To raise awareness about the importance of water, we have chosen “Honoring the Waters” as our international Earthdance theme for 2007. We are inviting all attendees to bring water from where they live to be blessed.

For details on San Diego Earthdance, click here. We hope everyone will honor the water by participating in Coastal Cleanup Day and then honor the water by joining Earthdance in Balboa Park.
