- Geomancy Project
- Peace Cairns
- Volcanic Ash Healing Bed
- Crystal Mound Meditation Area
- Stay amongst the forest in our Eco-Tabins May-Sept
Amongst the Stones... Grail Springs may be the first wellness retreat in the world to implement a Geomancy Project. This entails specific placement of transducers, special minerals and selected stones by a trained Geomancer, to bring equilibrium to all who walk upon her land and within her walls. Look for large standing stones while you are here, known as peace cairnes, an ancient tradition symbolizing an active movement towards peace by lying down of stones (primitive weapons) and turning them into building blocks towards a better future. At some point during your visit, lie down in the volcanic bed and let your body benefit by the electro-magnetic frequency or venture to our hidden Crystal Mound meditation area.
- Freedom Mound Tradition
Before you depart, walk to Freedom Mound where you will find stones of all shapes and sizes left behind by previous visitors. The stones represent those things in life someone was ready to let go of, a tradition which we have adopted from the famous Camino Pilgrim Trail in Spain. So if you feel so moved, find your stone, leave the past behind, and make room for the new.
