WATER | 28 Day Practice Calendar | Feb. '22

71% of earth is covered in water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%. How do we relate to water? How do we feel about it, use it, protect it, conserve it? How do we connect with the energy of water, the flow, the creativity and sensuality of water? Join me this month as we explore our relationship with water both on a physical level and an intellectual level.
