This beautiful song and sharing has been offered by author and water visionary William E Marks. A Native American Flute song composed to honor of the ONE SONG global water effort. The song is played on an "F#" flute, which is resonates as the "LOVE" flute and is connected to the heart chakra of our bodies and our Earth.

This magic moment happened during a recent trip aboard the Blue Dolphin in Hervey Bay, Australia, when when Peace in the Water co-founder, Chip Richards played his Native American Flute to a female Humpback Whale who was resting off the side of the catamaran. After a few moments, she dropped underwater and went totally inverted, hanging upside down with her tail up out of the water. This sweet giant hung there, suspended this way for about 15 minutes without taking a breath -- the entire time Chip played. A powerful genuine exchange shared by ALL... a quiet dance of sound and waves and stillness in the sea of LIFE. Aho.

The sound pressure level of the whale's song is equivalent to that of a jet engine. It is speculated that the whale's song if unimpeded by land-masses could circulate the globe and return to its source. Divers in close range of a singer have told us that their whole bodies vibrate with the frequencies.
The population of this group of whales which we study, the Antarctic Area V whales, was estimated to be between 45,000 and 60,000 before whaling commenced. When whaling ceased in Australia because of the lack of whales, there were an estimated 150 individuals remaining. We have just finished a collaborative paper on the Antarctic Area V population. Using Photo-Identification 'mark re-capture' techniques we estimate the recovering population to be approximately 7,000.

This is a high-definition video clip of a female humpback and two-week old calf - shared by Andrew Stephenson - http://www.awstevenson.com. "They stayed close to our boat moored some 80 miles off the Dominican Republic coast for three days. She seemed to remain around us for protection. Watching this footage you can't help but describe the calf and mother as being affectionate and loving to each other. The mother trusted us completely and appeared interested in introducing her calf to us. The beautiful background music is Lisa Walker's from her Album 'Grooved Whale'. See her website www.groovedwhale.com."
Underwater footage of a humpback whale fifteen miles off Bermuda - by Andrew Stevenson, www.awstevenson.com. "I had spent 300 hours over ten weeks trying to film the migrating humpbacks underwater. It was the end of April and I didn't have a minute of footage. And then I was in the water filming dolphins when this whale found me. The encounter was almost two hours long often within inches of the whale. It was also the first chance I had had to use my underwater housing and video camera. I had an overwhelming feeling that I was looking into the eyes of a very intelligent creature. It took me a week to sleep after the experience and a month to talk about the experience without becoming emotional. It is tragic that the Japanese whaling fleet is setting off this year to kill 50 endangered humpback whales, 50 fin whales and 935 minke whales in Antarctica in a whale sanctuary."
A truly incredible moment of inter-species connection and a magically positive human intervention with the natural world. (shard by strangenation in Australia)

There are few living beings on Earth who so profoundly effect people of all walks of life simply by taking a BREATH. If you have ever been close enough to see, hear and feel the breath of a whale, you will agree there is something deeply penetrating and soul-expanding about their moment of surfacing. This year we discovered the wonder of of playing Native American Flute in rhythm with the breath of Humpback Whales in Hervey Bay, Australia. We are so grateful for the experience. One Breath. One Song. Be YOUR NOTE.
