It was really an honor for us to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Emoto and Hiro at Jakartafs airport on December 8, 2008. A moment of a dream comes true.
The first time we heard about Mr. Emotofs work was in New York in January 2000, when we had a chance to learn about a healing method called Resonance Repatterning.
Then August 22, 2007, we were able to see Mr. and Mrs. Emoto personally through one of his seminar in our home town, Bandung, Indonesia. In that meeting we decided to take up Emoto Peace Project in Indonesia, with an aim to spread itfs peace message to at least one million Indonesian children in 2 year period, through presentation of Emoto Peace Project and publication of eThe Message from Waterf books.
In 2008, we have published 2 editions, each was 10.000 copies. The first edition was funded by friends and the second edition was funded by the donation we had received from the first edition. This cross-subsidized system will go on for 2 years.
More than 12 months later, we received an e-mail from Mr. Emotofs office, offering his visit to Indonesia in the context of his Peace Project. An offer that was unimmaginable for us!
We went straight to our town, Bandung, which is 3-hour away by car from Jakarta, the capital city. We were very sorry that we could only provide a very small and noisy hotel for Mr. Emotofs team. We were not sure if they could really sleep well as they have told us.

On December 9, we visited the first school ? St. Aloysius elementary school. Most of the schools that were visited had ever heard a presentation on Emoto Peace Project from us and most of the student has a copy of eMessage from Waterf book.
Students at the school welcomed us with a local song.
The plants exposed to Thank you (#1) grew faster than other two.
The plant ignored (#3) has leaves which were bitten by insects.
On the evening of the 9th, we organized a bigger seminar for teachers, parents and activists. About 250 people - some came from other towns - attended the seminar, an eye-opening seminar for many.

A dense schedule marked the 10th of December.
Students welcomed Dr. Emoto with local traditional dance.
No time for a rest since we went straight from the school to Jakarta city. Another 3-hour-trip to St. Theresia school, where Mr. Emoto gave another presentation to around 300 student representations and teachers from kinder garden, elementary, junior high, senior high, and tourism schools.
We hoped that that night Mr. Emotofs team could have a real rest at Kristal Hotel, this time was a bigger one. A little side story about this hotel; we had had 2 hotels as our options but finally we chose this hotel as it was nearer to the school that wefre going to visit the next day, without very much noticing itfs name. It was Mrs. Emoto who noticed that it spelled with eKf (as in Indonesian word for Crystal) instead of eCf (as in Crystal), and only in that moment that we realized that we had chosen a hotel with a name so central to Mr. Emotofs work.

Morning visit to St. Ursula BSD School on the 11th.

With the students.
Mr. Emoto himself then gave his presentation eagerly although he was started to get the flu. Again, the dialogue session was felt too short as the enthusiasm of the students kept growing.
That song was also a closing of Mr. Emotofs visit this time.

The 12th came with the sadness of a goodbye.
December 14, 2008
14th of December, taking friends, we went to the seminar as promoters of The Message from Water books. Around 200 books were gsoldh to adult readers and the donation we received that day will give birth to around 1.000 next copies. Another big help!
A big thank you to Mr. Emoto, Mrs. Emoto and Hiro. Your love, your big and generous hearts will always be remembered.
