Discover the Wonder of Water: What would it be like to experience water viscerally? Susan Harper teaches us to become conscious of the sacral nature of this ubiquitous element in her article “Sensing Water.” Loremaster P. Sufenas Virius Lupus writes about the ability of water and even of drowning to assist in the apotheosis of humans in a fascinating look at classical Greek and Roman paganism “Deification by Drowning.” Leni Hester introduces us to the Lady of Fresh Water, Ochun, in “No One is an Enemy to Water.”
