Why WaterWhy MalaThe BowlsParticipatePrevious Malas


The first edition of the " Water Mala" was offered as a memorial gift by Hermitage Heart to 108 representative friends, distinguished colleagues and family of Thomas Berry, a man deeply loved and widely inspiring. In order to honor the atmosphere of the Memorial Ceremony, it was decided to let people know in advance that  a bowl was being offered to them. Obviously the selection of a this number had to be somewhat random, influenced in part by such things as who would able to attend the Memorial Ceremony. (We ask patience if there was any oversight; though 108  may indicate the infinite, any others who might like to receive a bowl are more than welcome into the circle. Please see: "Future Water Malas")

We are very pleased to welcome as the first 108 bowl-receivers this wonderful circle who represent in their lives a particular resonance with Thomas Berry, each continuing in unique, and remarkable ways the calling for a sacred expressiveness of the human possibility. 


A special online community was developed for recipients of the Thomas Berry Mala.
