Flow Like a River

The thrill of plunging - or dipping a toe into water brings joy, confidence, adventure and friendship. It can wash away stress and sadness, pain and grief. Here water is a great healer, a place to feel gloriously, elementally alive and in touch with yourself, with other and with nature.
