Life Source Retreats created a “Skin to Soul Retreat” featuring Dr. Tess Mauricio and Marla Maples August 7-12, 2016 which included an element of May’s “Journey to the Heart & Sacred Waters Retreat”. Inspired by The Waterbearers and utilizing filters from Waves for Water, retreat attendees did a water filter distribution and demonstration at the Dos Palmas community. This local sacred Cenote is cared for by 5 families. They have their own school, community center, and scientific research are, and were so relieved to now have better access to clean water because of the filters and faucet adapters LSR provided, thus promoting their self sustainability and community health.

“Due to the political climate, US Homeland Security advised Marla against a trip to Mexico at this time, but it was very important to her, so she put on a hat and jumped on a plane anyway!” recalls LSR CO-founder Michele Clark. This is the 3rd local activation produced by Life Source Retreats all with the spirit and love of The Waterbearer’s and Waves for Water whose mission is to help people around the world have access to clean water, the source of all life! “Giving back to schools and communities while doing whatever we can to help people find a bit of happiness has been one of the primary reasons we created Life Source,” says Clark, “And this is just the beginning.”
