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.
