Rio Rosario at Pacha Mama
Time of day for performance
History of site and related water issues
Rio Rosario is both a water source and also a revered sacred body of water. A recent discovery of high arsenic levels in the water in Guanacaste is most troubling. The water organization in Costa Rica AyA is looking into solutions for the situation and it seems it will take time to find one as the machinery to remove the arsenic is costly and may not be able to be afforded by some communities.
A ritual of creation which honors the sacred water around and inside of us. This act of creation sent waves of healing vibrations through the water in our cells and on this land.
