From a gentle mountain pond to a raging waterfall or from a silent ocean mist to a sparkling rainbow, dramatic text and paintings give water voice and substance in this tribute to water in all its glorious forms. Inspiring and informative, Water Dance is a poetic introduction to one of nature’s most basic elements. Scientific facts about water and its role in our lives are included. “Thirteen lushly romantic oil paintings, accompanied by spare, poetic text, offer viewers a sensuous introduction to the water cycle.”--The Bulletin
Water is the thread that connects us all. The capable student of water management must have the ability to clearly and concisely ask the right questions, formulate an actionable research plan, expeditiously carry out the research, and disseminate findings so that they may be applied directly, adapted to suit particular needs and cases, and/or debated vigorously in the public domain. To this end, Playing the Water Dance serves as a timely and useful tool for the postgraduate student, mid-career academic, skilled practitioner, and seasoned consultant alike.

This book is a refreshment to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and Chocolate for A Woman's Soul, by going beyond mind and spirit nurturing to the wonderful experience of nurturing in water. As an aquatics fitness instructor and therapist for over twenty years, Juliana Larson has observed water's unmistakable power to foster bonds between women. Perhaps because water has been an archetypal female symbol for thousands of years, women find great nurturing potential in a shared aquatic environment. Water is a gentle healer, and can consequently provide significant mental, spiritual, and physical benefits as one moves one's body within it. As Larson demonstrates through this collection of true stories, a pool of water can improve one's well-being, body image, and overall fitness while working to provoke positive life change. Water Dance opens all women, young and old, to entirely new ways of nurturing themselves and one another, improving their lives in the process.
