SKIMMING STONES Rob Cowen
Skimming Stones is a collection of fun, simple, outdoor skills and activities that encourages us to interact with nature, achieve a deeper connection with it and even step into adventures at another level of consciousness. Rob Cowen and Leo Critchley teach us techniques for constructing and flying a kite, making an elder-stick whistle, damming a stream, tracking an animal and much more - and show us opportunities for reflection and meditation along the way. They urge us to live in the moment, to recover and protect our ancient insights and rhythms, and to see and feel as nature reveals to us her intimate secrets and treasures. Skimming Stones also shows how doing simple things in our modern world allows us to revive and share passion for our surroundings and the contemplative, reflective pleasures they bring.
