Rock balancing for mindfulness

September 2nd, 2015

My favourite form of mindfulness is rock balancing – introduced to me years ago by my friend Chris Corrigan. His advice about how to balance rocks still stands – you simply have to believe it’s possible.

Mongolia is a great place for rock balancing. And mindfulness.

After a particularly busy week, and with another looming, today’s glorious autumn weather and a bit of free time drew me to the beach. And a bit of rock balancing. I like being on my own when balancing rocks. I like the solid feel of the rocks. I like letting go of anything other than believing it’s possible. HT to Chris Corrigan.


Believing it’s possible at Bells

May 17th, 2010

My friend Chris Corrigan introduced me to rock balancing, so it was only appropriate on a recent visit to Bells Beach (when the surf was pumping BTW) that Chris took the opportunity to do some rock balancing on my home turf. I hope to do the same on his home turf, Bowen Island, some time.

Walking towards Southside (away from the rocks), I looked back. A surfer was making his way towards the surf when suddenly the balanced rock caught his eye. He stopped dead in his tracks and stared. Then he walked around, maybe trying to figure out how it was done. There is no trick however. As Chris once described to me, you simply have to believe it’s possible. I’m sure the surfers on those huge waves understand. Believe it’s possible. Yes!
