Healing the waters of the Texas Bays

water fest

April 25, 2015, Wiv Luv partnered with the Texas Oystermen to heal the waters of the Lavaca Bay and inspire heart-based community action. Crash Alchemy Entertainment featured performance art and aerial dancing on the dredges of the oyster boats. Dr. Gerald Pollack, PhD delivered a lecture on the 4th phase of water and water memory. Creative Light Sound Productions demonstrated water cymatics, sound geometry. Myco-Alliance constructed floating bioremediation gardens with the aim of absorbing methyl-mercury. A 10 minute documentary was filmed by Adventure Video Co.so that we may cross-pollinate our ideas and inspire greater change in the health of the bays.

The ceremony featured world music and prayer with Indrajit Banerjee: sitar | Mohammad Firoozi: percussion & vocals | Andrew Collins Graham: piano | Jake Harrell: guitar
Zaalo Zarete & Melanie Rose: percussion | Amanda Raby: vocals and water wedding ceremony officiant

The event was produced by Amanda Raby, Wiv Luv founder and Creative Director and Brook Roselle, Wiv Luv Production Manager.

About Wiv Luv

Founded in 2013 by 7th generation Daughter of Texas, Amanda Raby, in response to impending feelings of separation from her home-land and her fellow man. Raby discovered that these feelings of separation were diminished when she applied her ultimate creative joy towards projects that helped her community harmonize with the land and local waters. So she set out to support her fellow artists in the mission to make heart-based change in our communities and local eco-systems.

Sustainable design sciences like permaculture are given inspired marketing platforms to make the info more accessible to future generations. We avoid finger pointing, name blaming and forcing through petitions because this only creates more separation.  Wiv Luv seeks to inspire change. We observe, connect, receive what wants to be born through our hearts unified with the earth.

We allow ourselves to be moved towards creating inspired art with love. ~Wiv Luv
