Song of Silence – Water, Spirit, Energy, Life

“Mother Nature is the greatest artist and water is one of her favorite brushes. The element of water alters our vision and impressions. Known forms transition into new, unique and often startling creations, often beyond our expectations. Whether it is an entire ocean, a lake, a river, a pond or a single drop of water, the essence of liquid is transformative. “ – Rico Besserdich

Rico Besserdich brings us this splendid artistic testimonial to the ineffable beauty and power of water. Song of Silence represents the culmination of four decades of preparation both creatively and spiritually. Text has been contributed by a diversity of people from around the world including several Nobel laureates: his Holiness the Dalai Lama, José Ramos-Horta, Sir John B. Gurdon and Professor May-Britt Moser.

Laurie Wilson of Blue Ocean Network contributed Water Namaste
“Water is a playground, a dwelling place, a sacred space; It calms and creates, absorbs and amplifies, heals and safeguards life.  Water has no ego and knows no bounds. The state of our ocean is a reflection of humanity, and the state of our collective consciousness at this time; The ocean is calling us all to go deeper, to reconnect with our true blue nature, to protect life on earth, including our own.”

“Arts, science and philosophy working together hand in hand to create a positive universal message about something that is greater than all of us: water. This is SONG OF SILENCE.”


Rico-Besserdich_song of silenceThe official release of “Song of Silence” will take place in the Nobel Museum, Stockholm/Sweden on November 29th.

The book release will follow Besserdich’s speaking before the Swedish Parliament on “Water, Woman & Arts”. For this event Besserdich will be joined by the Swedish Secretary of State, Mrs Ulrika Modeer, and Mrs Monica Green, Chairwoman of UN WOMAN Sweden. Visit the Song of Silence website.
