WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE FOR SOUL WATER RISING, the global human mission founded by poet, author, international speaker, youth mentor, and soul servant, DR. JAIYA JOHN. Over 30,000 of Jaiya's books on our human journey have sold worldwide. He has spoken to over 300,000 souls.
Jaiya John and Soul Water Rising are compassionately devoted to supporting the healing journeys of historically dehumanized populations and cultures. We work with individuals, groups, and organizations to foster wholeness, and life affirming and honoring spirit in children, youth, families, and communities.
We place a particular priority on displaced, stigmatized, marginalized, and materially impoverished children and families; on the honoring of womanhood and fatherhood; and on the dissolving of racial and cultural supremacies wherever they exist.
Jaiya has contracted with Fresno County Dept. of Social Services to provide 30 monthly seminars (10 convenings) in 2015 on trauma informed staff and system renewal for the department's supervisors, program managers, and caseworkers. He is doing similar work with Contra Costa County, Napa County, Orange County, Alpine County, and other agencies and programs throughout California.
