Cygnus Review Autumn 2019, Cygnus Star Titles
by: Travis Ruskus
You are probably not familiar with rock balancing. It is the practice of piling up stones in natural settings, creating everything from simple towers to amazingly elaborate and apparently gravity-defying edifices. People balance rocks for fun, to challenge themselves and as a way of being mindful, connecting to nature and focusing on the present moment. Travis Ruskus is a professional rock balancer, artist and meditation instructor. Here Ruskus brings rock balancing to the mainstream for the first time. With 40 spectacular colour photographs of the author’s own balances, as well as technical and philosophical advice on approaching rock balancing, this book is everything you need to explore this oddly beautiful and fulfilling practice.
