I have had a deep, heart-felt relationship with sacred sites and stones my whole life. Not long ago I lived in a part of the world with very few sacred sites. I felt bereft without them, and so I began creating miniature standing stones, dolmens and sacred sites from stones that had found their way into my life over the course of many years. As I worked intentionally and heart-fully with each miniature, I was amazed at the powerful effect they had upon me – helping me to feel at peace and balanced. I soon became aware of a loving energy arising between my heart and each Living-stone. I later learnt that my intention to create a sacred stone miniature, enabled the stones to radiate their energy outwards to me. Requests soon followed for me to make miniatures for friends and family, and not long after, Living-stones were born!
The thoughts of my heart revealed to me through my academic research are given expression through each stone miniature that I create. Each finished piece emits a specific energy frequency; for example, abundance, peace, illumination. The stones teach and heal; reconnecting us to the natural cycles of life. See the Living-stones portfolio for more information.
