Learn about the history of Cairns (stone stacks) and how they are used in spiritual practices and to navigate life’s paths and challenges. In his personal life journey, George has used stone art, meditation, cairn-building and other practices to recover from addiction and cancer.
In this onsite workshop, he will lead a guided meditation of centering and creative visioning and show you how to make your own cairn. Maybe two! Maybe several! The program will be largely based on George’s best-selling book, Stone Warrior: Confronting Life’s Challenges with Stone Art and Meditation, published by Flower of Life Press, 2020. It will offer participants of all faith backgrounds or “nones” the joy of making art, a community connection, and the calm of meditation.
Bring your camera or Smartphone to photograph your creations. Wear comfortable clothes, sneakers or other non-slip shoes, and sunscreen. Bring a hat, as the sun can be intense by the water, and a rain jacket or weather-appropriate outer wear, as part of the workshop will be held outdoors – on the beautiful grounds at Mercy by the Sea located on Long Island Sound in Madison, CT.
George Herrick is a life coach, artist, and shamanic practitioner whose daily meditation practice for six years comprised building a cairn and writing an accompanying meditation. He is founder and creator of SoulDeep Living, a process for liberating your divine creativity.
