SoundWeaving with water Feb. 14

Water, My Love is a celebration of love and gratitude for water, both domestic and natural, with live music and spoken word.

It takes place at Artspace on Feb. 14 starting at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. This evening of spoken word, live music and water stories features Danielea Castell, Benjamin Laurie and a surprise guest.

Water, My Love is a playful and poignant look at the current complexities of the human relationship with water as viewed through the lens of love and gratitude. Castell loves water and loves to sing her gratitude to water through a spiritual practise she calls SoundWeaving.

To prepare, she brought a mason jar of water from the Fraser River which has stayed with her. She has made a practise of offering love and gratitude to water every time she uses it or thinks about it.

“This simple activity has changed me,” said Castell. “I have much more peace, clarity and flow in my life.”

Laurie lives on Lheidli T’enneh territory while completing his masters of social work degree at UNBC. He plays fiddle. He farms, bow hunts and tans animal hides, and he encourages others to connect with themselves and the world around him.

The Water, My Love event is by donation with all proceeds going to make a musical CD about water awareness and appreciation, notes Castell. Auction items include works by wildlife photographers Dr. Clive Keen and Corrie Turner of the Prince George Naturalist Club. There will be a raw food workshop, massages and other services from P.G.’s wellness business community.

A documentary photo exhibit about SoundWeaving will be on display at Artspace, above Books and Company for the rest of February.
