Blessing Ceremony for the Duwamish River

The Duwamish is sacred to local Native American tribes, and has suffered greatly at the hands of industrial interests who have polluted the waterway with PCBs, phthalates and heavy metals. Home to many forms of wildlife and a vital link for migrating salmon, in 2002 the Duwamish was listed as a Superfund site.

On a visit last year to Seattle, Dr. Masuro Emoto, bestselling author of The Hidden Messages in Water, took a sample of the Duwamish (which showed that no crystal would form from the heavily polluted water), and encouraged Eileen Dey of The Reiki Fellowship to conduct six monthly public ceremonies each month to help heal the waters.

I was honored to be able to participate in many of those ceremonies, along with Eileen and Sha’ari Garfinkel, and am pleased to announce that we will once again be holding public ceremony this year on the 15th of each month beginning this Sunday, May 15. The ceremony, jointly conducted by Eileen, Sha’ari and myself will last about one hour and is open to anyone who would like to participate, no experience necessary.


On Sunday, May 15, 6:00-7:00 p.m. you are invited to join us in healing ceremony for the waters of the Duwamish.

Meet with us on the shores of the Duwamish Waterway Park, 7900 10th Avenue S, in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle for an hour of Reiki, Peruvian shamanism, gong, Native American flute and a special crystal singing bowl ritual to bless the waters of the Duwamish River. (Not local? Send your prayers and intentions from a distance, and we’ll include them.)

Eileen Dey, The Reiki Fellowship, will be bringing her gift of Reiki and healing chants to each ceremony.

Rose De Dan, Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing, will be bringing her gift of storytelling and shamanic blessing to several ceremonies.

Sha’ari Garfinkel, Inner Listening, will be bringing her gift of Native American flute, Bali gong and crystal singing bowl sound healing to several ceremonies.

Suggested donation $5-18. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition.
