Bowl Of Stones

December 5, 2018.  Once upon a time, when younger and more flexible, I would lay out a labyrinth on the mountain up above Cloudcroft NM each summer.  In a national forest,  one “leaves nothing and takes only pictures” – hence no permanent stone-lined labyrinth.  My challenge included:  repeatable installs, rain proof, cattle proof, materials must fit in the back of an already-crammed car.

Each summer, I would spend a spiritually connected day creating the labyrinth before the group arrived, and a frenzied couple of hours at close of the gathering – pulling up anchored straps and packing materials snugly back into their container.

Near the labyrinth center, I placed a bowl of polished gemstone fragments – and encouraged walkers to stir the collective energy as they passed.

This collage puts a smaller capture of the bowl near center over a larger capture of stones within the bowl
