Live H2O: Concert For The Living Waters, June 19-21 - "Celebrating The Marriage Of Water The Universal Solvent With Music The Universal Language To Create Love The Universal Healer!" This historic planetary event features Grammy Award winning musicians and music lovers around the world called to social activism based on the mathematical proofs and the emerging revelations fundamental to science and religion.

In recent years NASA has proven that Water exists throughout the universe. Experts say Water is a liquid crystal superconductor of sound. Recent discoveries prove the original musical scale upon which physical reality, universal gravity, sacred geometry, and the mathematical constants Pi, PHI, and the Fibonacci series are based.

Throughout history cultures have revered the primal spiritual significance of Water. Genesis tells us that Water collaborated with God and the Holy Spirit during the “Big Bang.” Thus, before there were religions, or the “Trinity” in history, Water comprised one third of the “Triune God.” Dr. Leonard Horowitz co-creator of Live H2O says: "the 'Living Waters’ are everywhere in us and around us. By singing and chanting, using the ‘Love Frequency’ 528 Hz, we can cause a mass awakening and a spiritual uplifting of human hearts!”

“Water reflects more than light,” says Japanese Water scholar, Dr. Masaru Emoto, co-creator of LIVE H2O. Water has a dynamic capacity to alter its molecular structure in response to words and music. Every thing and every one is vibrating, either in healthy resonance or distressing dissonance, with nature’s harmonics. By generating unconditional love and heart-felt gratitude toward the oceans, rivers, lakes and streams of the world, we can potentially re-structure all the water on the planet in one event!

Organizers plan to embed 1440 video players on websites worldwide, broadcasting concerts from more than a dozen international stages! Visit for a list of performers, concert venues, and event details. Los Cabos is taking part in this Global Event during the Summer Solstice. Programs honoring water are taking place in the Baja:

Friday June 19: Drumming and Music at Baja Bio Sana and the dam at El Chorro in Agua Caliente.

Saturday June 20: Music, Aguamo Art Exhibit, and showing of the film “Water” at the Grand Mayan Golf Course Lounge, in San Jose.

Sunday June 21: Film and Concert with “Jaya” and others at the Yandara Yoga Institute near Todos Santos.

Comments, Questions and Answers

Reliable Phone Service - We are currently using Skype to call the US, but it doesn't seem to work that great. Does anyone have ideas on cheap cell phone service to call the US, preferably using an existing Telcel phone? Are there cards available to use with a Telcel phone to call the US (preferably from an English speaker as our Spanish is still a bit rough)? Or are there recommendations on purchasing another phone that would enable calling the US? Thanks! - Steve Mahan, stevemahan5 [-at-], Todos Santos

Another Scam Question - We were recently approached at our home by a man wearing a Cruz Rojo shirt for donations to Cruz Rojo. I reminded him that they recently had their donations campaign on the street corners and showed him the sticker on my car that showed I had already donated. He said they weren't doing that because of the influenza and that they are now going house to house. That isn't making a lot of sense to me both because of the recent public campaign and the flu answer. Is this legitimate or is someone using a good cause for personal gain? - Sharon Morris, serendipityventures [-at-], 612-108-3502
