Tomorrow, June 21, 2009 is the longest day of the year, or the summer solstice: the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
This year in conjunction with this event, there are two concurrent projects going on to celebrate our watery earth, to pray for the earth and to celebrate world peace. The One Song project begins tomorrow
From the website at http://www.onesongproject.com
the official song will begin at dawn in the most easterly point of Australia and then this song will circle the globe, moving through the different countries and timezones as a wave of sound, a sonic prayer being sung into the Waters across our living planet. This is your time with yourself and your family to sing and ground the One Song within yourself and within your area.
The Song, is sung first by whales, an Aboriginal Elder of the Widjimbul people adds in a second layer, joined by two modern song keepers Goa Lobaugh on the didgeridoo and Cornflower on vocal percussion and who also leads the global ‘One Song’. Cornflower then leads a global sound prayer "Oma Ka Om".
The song will be sung simultaneously around the world with a service at 6PM EST / 3PM Pacific Time.
It is designed to help us garner our energy - to use water in a more responsible way, as the Earth's "instrument of change".
Live H20 is a three day event already ongoing, rapping up tomorrow with 24 hours of spiritual services honoring "The Living Water" globally, and in each of us. Learn more and participate in live broadcast and chat here.
