Rock Stacking

Rock stacking has carried spiritual meaning across cultures for centuries. The act of balancing stones carries with it a practice of patience and a physical effort of creating balance. I love the idea of tangible prayer and finding new ways to express gratitude in my life. Each rock can signify an intention of grace for thankfulness, or offered up for another in need. Connecting nature in this externalized expression is uplifting and very powerful tool for expanding the spirit. A little silicone glue can help make smaller stone towers last through the seasons if used as a garden decoration or given as a gift.

  2. I stack rocks too, collect them from the beach nearby - mainly small ones that I glue and build up into the tiniest of stones on top. They are all colours and mainly round. It is very calming and make nice little gifts for other creative types.
