Ancient Stones Healing Waters

Stone and water



The challenge of creating water features that contribute to health and healing is an inspiring opportunity. Nathaniel Altman, in his book Sacred Water, said this regarding healing Healing is more than eliminating disease symptoms; it is a process of achieving wholeness, alignment, and integration that encompasses every level of our being. Healing encourages self-awareness and enables us to express our unique potential more fully in our work, study, and relationships with ourselves and others Water has been a powerful factor in healing since time immemorial´┐Ż The goal of the artist was to have these water features offer something to all the sense, sight, sound, touch, even smell. In the arid West these sensory experiences must be maximized with a minimum amount of water. And in the winter months, when the water is not flowing, the memory of water should be present.
