Workshop: Is It Possible To See Water As A Living Entity?

This one day, hands-on workshop will be presented by Jennifer Greene, M.Ed, the Director of the Water Research Institute (WRI) of Blue Hill.  The workshop is based on the approach taken by the WRI to understand water is based on a way of perceiving nature made known by Johann Wolfgang von Goether (1749-1832).

Knowledge of “water’s language” can lead to new paradigms for natural resources management and policy strategies.  The “movement forms we will study are the: the drop and drop-fall; the vortex in its various forms, the wave and the meander.

Beginning with simple phenomena experiments, that can be observed, the methods employed by WRI show that water phenomena are like the letters of a script which can be learned, read and used to understand its story.

WRI’s water phenomenology program awakens new capacities in the researcher for understanding the behavior and nature of water.
