Water Happy is as much a water practice as it is a way of of living life itself.
We develop workshops and teaching material that address the fifth dimension in an aquatic environment.
Water helps us embody our energy and empowers us to be more of who we are.
Water accelerates our receptive capacity, enhances our sensory perception and resonance with other people
in a therapeutic, educational or social relationship is more easily attained.
Water loves unconditionally, remembers everything and heals what doesn’t yield easily on land.
Water is resonant, reflective and communicative.
This is the energetic dimension. Here, time and space do not behave like we know it in the 3rd or physical dimension.
This dimension uses language like vibration, intention, transmission and embodiment.
Water amplifies energy and makes it more tangible than on land.
Babies, children and non-verbal communicators all communicate naturally in this way.
In water we can experience what in the 5th dimension is invisible to the eye.
We are One.
What we bring to the water as people, aquatic professionals, parents, educators will have an effect on the whole.
Who we are beyond what we say or do, is transmitted more vividly in water.
Changing the way we see water and the roles we play in it, can be a life changing event.
Water Happy classes, workshops and retreats are experiential.
They ask us to become more of who we are in our own understanding of ourselves.
Water allows us to be happy.
