Marks topics are as diverse: waters role in the origin of the universe and life itself; cosmic rain and water in interstellar space; water in the . The Healing Power of Energized Water.

Marks topics are as diverse: waters role in the origin of the universe and life itself; cosmic rain and water in interstellar space; water in the traditional myths and religions; the power of water in its many forms in the natural world; vortex energy and living water; water and the human body; water healing; and a history of water pollution. He offers hope for the future by discussing the work of visionaries such as Theodor Schwenk and Viktor Schauberger.

Long gone are the days of drinking naturally pure water from flowing rivers and streams―or even your tap. Today it is becoming common practice to use bottled or filtered water. How did we arrive at such a state, and what can we do about it? Pollution, ever-increasing population, industrial pressures, rainforest destruction, and ground water waste have all led to the deterioration of water quality, yet the underlying problem―as Marks shows in his wide-ranging, thoughtful book―is the general lack of understanding of the nature of water itself. Marks’ topics are as diverse: water’s role in the origin of the universe and life itself; cosmic rain and water in interstellar space; water in the traditional myths and religions; the power of water in its many forms in the natural world; vortex energy and living water; water and the human body; water healing; and a history of water pollution. He offers hope for the future by discussing the work of visionaries such as Theodor Schwenk and Viktor Schauberger. We see that, in the end, one cannot understand water unless it is viewed as a mediator―not only between life and death, but also between the physical and the spiritual worlds.
Reviews:
  • Dellevar
This is not your usual "water book". Marks has clearly dedicated his life to his relationship and stewardship of water. This is a different read from other "water dialogues" that often lean to more clinical or marketing formats. This writing is as much about helping everyone understand our relationship with water as it is about Marks' personal pilgrimage toward a fuller understanding and awareness of water's role in our existence.

This is not a quick read as Marks offers us many examples of exactly what place in our life, our towns, our planets and our universe he is convinced water holds.

Marks supports his premise that water should be treated as a living being with historical writings from some of our greatest thinkers and teachers.

He endeavors to show us his perspective of how threatened our planetary water supply is currently. At the same time, he also casts examples of legal, group activity and recent dialogue that he believes provides us with hope that we can slow down and possibly even resolve the damage done.

It's well worth reading.

This book is as important to the Earth as Water itself. Many of us are increasingly concerned about what we are doing to the environment. Our concerns about the plight of water and its importance to the survival of life on this planet are addressed magnificently in this book that describes powers of water of which even I was unaware!

Water is a mystical, magical substance, and oh how we take it for granted; filling it with carmel coated sugar substances for profit; tossing our waste products into it as if it had no value of its own, wasting it on "the perfect lawn" which servies absolutely no purpose or function, or even washing our cars, which cry the death knoll of Earth daily.

Care enough about Water to read this book. Pass it on to your friends. Give it as a gift for Arbor Day, Earth Day, Valentine's day. It's the most important book you will read this year.

Much about water, the esoteric and the practical in this book. It is an outstanding and welcome addition to my collection on water.
  • Snake Rocking
I slogged my way through this book; and there are some interesting facts in there about water and the environment. But this turned out to be the author's personal story--a kind of alternative, visionary self-help book. The following is a typical excerpt along those lines from this book:

"One common method for healing the body with dew is to kneel in the nude and brush the open fingers and palms of one's hands across dew-laden vegetation.... Another method for touching the body with dew is to lie down naked on soft dewy grass and roll about. This is especially cosmic when done under one's celestial birth sign or when the light of the Moon is smiling or in full bloom."

If this is what you're seeking, this is your book. If you were hoping for a discussion of environmental issues, look elsewhere.

My friend & I traded water books. I am finishing The Holy Order of Water now and she is finishing Fresh Water: Women Writing on the Great Lakes by Alison Swan (Editor). The Holy Order of Water is a great, great book although it's a bit science heavy in parts for me. At one point I thought, "Hmmm, I haven't read so much Latin since high school!" Anyway Marks is a delightful person. I researched him a little on line. There are more books in him. I hope he does not keep it all inside too long. I look forward to hearing more from him. He has so much respect for nature.
Marks' book is a gem of useful information about all things water, conveyed to the reader with sensitive prose. I have recommended it to many and have referred to it in my lectures around the country. And finally, The Holy Order of Water was a big help for me when penning my own work Deep Immersion: The Experience of Water (nominated for top environmental book of the year). Marks well knows and guides the reader ably toward understanding the overwhleming importance of water in all our lives. As Thoreau wrote: "That part of you that is wettest is fullest of life" (quoted in Profitably Soaked: Thoreau's Engagement With Water (Green Frigate Books, 2003).
