Water Meditation

Water is life. It flows… freely or with structure. It rushes loudly or trickles softly. Filling the world with its music. Carrying away all of our thoughts and cares. Water cleanses. Reminding us that nothing stays the same. Its constant rush is grounding There’s security in the rush of the water.

The Magick of the Flowing Hollow

The Flowing Hollow is a beautiful magickal place at Burns Valley Herbals and Retreat. Water flows from the spring out of the mountain, into a little creek.
