Akiko Stein Introduced the Emoto Peace Project in Slovenian Schools and Nursery Schools
At Flaska, we have been collaborating with the Masaru Emoto lab from Tokyo for a while and since last year also with its European representative, Akiko Stein. Last year was the year we started supporting the Emoto Peace Project and introduced a special edition of Flaska with an engraved Love and Gratitude crystal. This year, we made a further step and became the representatives of the Emoto Peace Project in Slovenia.
An important element of the project is a children’s booklet The Message of Water, which is also available in Slovenian from now on. The launch of the booklet and thus the symbolic start of the project in Slovenia were the reasons that Akiko Stein was invited to visit Slovenia.
As already mentioned, Akiko Stein is the representative of the Dr Masaru Emoto lab as well as of the Emoto Peace Project. Dr Masaru Emoto was a globally renowned researcher of water and the author of many books, among which The Message of Water may be the best known. Dr Emoto exposed water to various influences, froze it, and took images of its crystals. Based on the forms of the crystals, he drew conclusions on how external factors impact water positively or negatively. More on Dr Emoto and his projects can be found www.flaska.eu/water-structuring/pioneeers-of-water-research and Emoto Peace Project.
Akiko executed the workshops at the Waldorf Preschool in Radovljica, the Waldorf School in Naklo, and Bled Elementary School. With the help of interesting experiments, she showed the children the magical world of intangible and invisible in a very sensible and subtle way. The children could experience vibrations, frequencies, how the sound travels, the principles of synchronicity, and so much more. They also sang and talked about relationships as well as the impact we have on one another. Almost 200 children altogether learned about the Emoto Peace Project idea. They all also received a free booklet. Not one single child left the workshops unimpressed. That is because during the experiments, they could take a bow themselves and create music with string instruments and observe what beautiful forms they could create with sound. They also captured and created sounds, wondered how metronomes can be so synchronised, and much, much more. It was also interesting to observe the teacher, who happily participated in experiments as well in the end.
Together we also visited the screening of films focusing on the environment and sports Touch of Water in Ljubljana. As the name implies, they were all about the wonderful worlds of water and how we are destroying them. Akiko loved the natural wonders of Slovenia and also presented her work to the Flaska team on the last day.
Water is becoming increasingly important and talked about at various events, discussions, and strategic political decisions. That is also the way it should be. At the end of the day, we were made aware that we must not take it for granted and that we will find ourselves in big trouble if we keep treating it as we are now. Let the Emoto Peace Project also contribute to raising awareness of all of us.
