Water in movement can behave in remarkable ways and simple experiments can reveal wonderful phenomena, Within the fluidity and elegance of harmonic flow archetypal forms arise which can also be seen in clouds, plant structures, bones, even in the stars. We will explore these experiences in a process structured to develop our understanding and unfold meaning .
Water is an amazing substance and just getting to know it better can be an interesting and enjoyable experience. The study can help develop an understanding of life in terms of organisms rather than mechanisms, and can stimulate creativity in art and craft as well as in horticulture and agriculture.
