In the summer of 2009, Kate Trnka* was part of a group of women who gathered together every July. What was on these women's hearts and minds was the condition of the bodies of water that were near and dear to their hearts. The Fox River, Lake Erie, Lake Michigan and other special places. Kate suggested that they start a wave of water ceremonies around the world, after seeing the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto in the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know"–starting with each member of the group! Each of these women held a ceremony in the spring of 2010. And so it began, ten ceremonies were held in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky. After the first event, Kate began reaching out across the internet to invite others to participate–and in 2011 there were over 100 ceremonies in 10 countries! In 2012 Kate learned about World Water Day which was being highly promoted by Dr. Masaru Emoto and decided not to continue promoting Heal the Waters. However, she continued to host a ceremony every year, locally as did her close friends in their locales. It didn't take long to realize that those who live in the upper Midwest are still mostly frozen on March 22nd (World Water Day) and she wished to continue holding a water ceremony in warmer weather. Subsequently, Heal the Waters was resurrected again in 2022–hosting 28 ceremonies in six countries.
We can never have enough ceremonies for the waters of our Earth. We encourage you to host a ceremony for the body of water that you hold near and dear to your heart.
