"In Sanskrit 'Narayan' is the name of God in his infinite all-pervading form and translated as 'the one who moves in the infinite waters and is also the water itself.'" Quote from linked article by Anne Koller at the bottom of this page.
It is said that we are always teaching what we need to learn. Ever since I decided to teach a workshop about sound and water everything seems to be about fluidity- including a very watery sound journey I did a couple of weeks ago. My son Benjamin has been in and out of the hospital in Salt Lake City several times in the last two months and is now back in, having had a pretty intense surgery last week. He was supposed to be in Neuro ICU for one to two nights at most, but has been here for almost a week. Surgery was last Tuesday, May 8- it is now Monday, May 14.
As for me, the plan was for me to be leaving here in five days and driving to Florida to teach a series of workshops and do some Healing Sound Journeys while there. I drove out here with a car full of Tibetan singing bowls and other instruments. Given that Ben's recovery thus far has not gone as planned I may well have to be out here longer. I have already changed the schedule once. I am hoping everyone else is willing and able to be fluid as I need to be right now. This is not how I expected to be teaching them about water! The one constant that identifies water is that it is always changing.
Here is a great article about some of the different ways water can be of benefit to the body, mind and spirit. Click here for the article The Radical Healing Effects of Water.
