"When we learn to respect and fall in love with WATER we stop taking it for granted. When we begin to savor water – both in our bodies and on the entire planet – we change our relationship to it and to each other"
The Waterbearers is a movement started by three women, Spryte Loriano, Jane Brinton, and Erin Toppenberg, who all share a passion for seeing everyone on the planet having access to clean water. The name was birthed one evening during a conversation with Spryte and Jane, when they both said “The Waterbearers” simultaneously as if they had instantly been made stewards of women and water. Coincidently, the very next night, Spryte was nearing the end of a good read The Serpent of Light: The Rise of the Feminine: 2012 and Beyond and discovered that the Waitaha people of New Zealand, a Matriarchal culture dating back over 4000 years, were known as the original “Water Bearers.” The phrase jumped out at her as an omen, and there began a journey that would weave together the old, the new, and the magic of intentional service into this movement – #For the love of water!
