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.

Each rock can signify an intention of grace for thankfulness, or offered up for another in need.

Rock stacking has also been a tool for navigation through hiking areas to guide lost souls and has saved lives.

It has also been a hated practice that has allegedly caused rock slides and destroyed eco systems.

I was introduced to rock stacking in my masters in teaching program. When I taught English in Korea I watched professional rock stackers and participated in rock Stacking events.

I just like rock stacking for artistic reasons. The challenge of balance is restorative and kids of any age can stack rocks for hours. A fun and beautiful activity.
