Parvati Ocean Anthem - It all began with a dream of a whale

OCEAN ANTHEM

coming soon

During an unusually hot July in Toronto, Canada, Parvati was planning a concert and workshop tour of Asia that fall, but had a recurring dream of lying on the ice of a frozen ocean. Below, a blue whale was waiting for her.

Answering the call, Parvati cancelled her tour and travelled instead to the North Pole, where she gave the northernmost musical performance ever, to raise awareness of the melting Arctic sea ice and its importance to life on Earth. In a remote High Arctic village on her way to the top of the world, she was greeted by Inuit elders who said, “You are the one who has come to do healing for the planet. We knew you were coming. The whale told us.”

Nature speaks through each one of us, if we are willing to listen. When Parvati returned from the North Pole, she had been changed by her willingness to listen and give voice to Nature. The whale had summoned her; she had responded; and the two would forever be connected. Now, Ocean Anthem celebrates and invites everyone into that partnership, through love of the world’s smallest ocean—one that holds the key to our survival.

Why do we need an Ocean Anthem?

Since time immemorial, the vast and majestic ocean has captivated our imagination. The primordial cradle in which life on Earth originated, its effulgent presence reminds us of a time when we lived continually immersed and connected with all. Our souls still remember that expanse beneath the ancient stars. We still feel in our cells and in the pulse of our breath the tidal pull to experience the ocean’s sparkling waves, mysterious depths and infinite horizons. Biologists know what we have always suspected in the deepest place of our hearts: we cannot live without our world’s great waters.

Every rippling wave, every beat of our hearts, and every cry of whales in the depths, are part of the symphonic universe. On these vital points, naturalists, quantum physicists and mystics each agree. To heal the illusory division within ourselves and between each other, we need to re-immerse into the resonant ocean of consciousness, our birthright.

Beneath the surface storms of fear and conflict is the eternal reality of our oneness. Parvati’s Ocean Anthem comes to airwaves and video in 2020 as an invitation for us to reflect on who we truly are, and dive back into the depths of love and unity. In so doing, we find the courage and compassion to take action for a healthy world.

The call to adventure

Today, our overheated oceans face a myriad of threats from acidification and waste to exploitation, noise and sea level rise. But it does not have to be this way. We live in an agitated world, tending to think of ourselves as separate eddies caught out of the stream of life. We often consider home to be a few feet of space that we own, instead of an interconnected whole to which we belong. Our restless minds can get caught in the undertow of anger, despair and greed, instead of embracing the buoyancy of compassion. But music—the language of the soul—can reawaken us to the oceanic depths of unconditional love and the courage to act on it.

We each are on a hero’s journey. Ocean Anthem is a call to adventure, inviting us into the immense luminosity of love for our world’s interconnected waters.

Take Action

Though our human choices have led to increasing chaos like a cancer in our collective body, Nature shows another way.

Parvati Foundation is creating the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, MAPS, to protect the world’s smallest ocean in the world’s largest protected area ever: the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle. MAPS is a 360º initiative to awaken interconnection globally in order to protect all life. By safeguarding the Arctic Ocean, it protects our homes, food and water supplies, global immunity, economic balance, social stability, and world peace.
