History of Site and Related Water Issues:

Stella Maris, a former retreat center is located on the Atlantic Ocean offering breathtaking views of the ocean. It is the home of Water Spirit a not-for-profit group committed to informing, inspiring, and enabling people to deepen their consciousness of the sacredness and interdependence of all creation with a focus on the role of water as critical in sustaining all life. Water issues of particular local concern include fracking, NJ pipelines, safe drinking water, chemical runoff and the negative effect of polluted waters on tourism and recreational activities along the Jersey Shore such as surfing and swimming.


Feedbag recording artists Tommy & Abby Anton enchant audiences with their distinctive style of mystical folk-pop. While Tommy’s full-production solo CD has enjoyed rave reviews and nation-wide airplay, the husband and wife duo’s intimate live performances featuring acoustic guitar, keyboards and tight harmonies are truly mesmerizing. Favorites on the local scene, as well as coast-to-coast touring artists, the Antons, well known for their vegan, raw food lifestyle, are often seen in the area with their bicycle trailer rigs, musical instruments in tow.
