The ceremony will bring us together to build compassionate community, send healing energy to ourselves, rivers, earth and all our relations.
At each Water Blessing community will:
- Learn sacred African water songs
- Lessons and sacred songs pulled from sister cultures
- Learn to work with the healing power of water and the other elementals
- Set positive intent for yourself and world
- Connect deeper with nature
- Honor the French Broad and all the waterways
Please bring a sweet fruit such as mango, banana, grapes, flowers or honey to offer to the waters and consider a monetary offering*.
*A percent of all proceeds go to help Yeye Omileye’s Osun River Project restoring the ailing source of the famous Sacred Osun River, Nigeria and OM Sanctuary’s percent will go to restoring the French Broad River Access. Ashe and in gratitude!
