We are always reminded of the quality and character of the people who visit us here at Boston Clear. Each one of you has a story and we honor every one of them. Serving you is our mission, which brings us to one more battle that we must overcome.
Please mark your calendar for October 2, 2018 at 7:30pm for the Lynnfield Zoning Board of Appeals (TOWN HALL- H. JOSEPH MANEY HEARING ROOM 55 SUMMER STREET, LYNNFIELD, MA). While we are confident in our position, the neighbors who have lodged their compliant seek nothing less than shutting the spring and leveling all structures on the land. Such an action would be unconscionable. We need everyone’s support … and Andrea’ note, below, is why we work so hard.
Andrea Vallario was drawn to yoga through the interesting blend of spirituality through body sense, philosophy and poetry. She began practice by studying with a variety of styles and teachers and almost immediately began training with alignment and heart-centered focused styles while maintaining an open internal curiosity toward direction of further study (all from her website). She, like you, is just one of the special caring people who are blessed to to connect with at the spring. Here is a letter that she wrote to us and gave us permission to share it here:
With hope I write to tell a little of my story. I have been working through some health issues for some time now, and have come to find what I have been looking for in a local practitioner and clinical herbalist. During one of my appointments, he offered to fill my bottle with the water he had in his kitchen. At some point during the session, I was compelled to ask him, since I have been coming to see him some time, and every time I enjoy water from his home, my body would seem to respond positively. I noticed a difference in taste, how my body felt, and how it responded to drinking the water that was offered. He of course shared a little bit about how most people get their water supply. And although for 3 years I have been appreciating the purified, filtered water from my place of work, it tasted nothing like the water that was given to me at my practitioners home.Since that time in the office, I have been making trips, approx 40 min drive) to Boston Clear Water and sharing what I have with friends. It’s worth it. I feel a sense of foundational support when I drink the water from the spring, something noticeably different from the water from work, or any other filtered or bottled water which I have had over the years. I even do my best to ration it while working for I feel a sense of emptiness in the water that is not from BCW.Additionally, I write to support BCW mission to provide safe and healthy, affordable drinking water to many people in our area. And most importantly, I feel a sense of peace and welcome when I am at the site, with it’s prayers, statues, candles, sanctuary. I notice how the people who come all have a sense of gratitude and warmth, one of generosity and peace. When I am there, I feel like we are all together receiving blessings of nature and giving back.Please consider the words of many who come here for healing and how we walk away in better spirits with an attitude of service and responsibility to each other.Thank you,Sincerely,Andrea VallarioAndrea Vallario RN, RYT 500
