How the Essence Works
The Standing Stones Essence® has been prepared in relationship with the spiritual presences at Callanish for the specific purpose of restoring undivided wholeness to individuals and to the planet as a whole. These ancient spiritual presences manifest through stones that are 3 billion years old, which came into existence before there were signs of life on planet earth. There were no sea creatures, no animals, and as yet no plant life. Here we experience life still in an unbroken, undivided sacred state.
As we see life as sacred, infinite, and astonishingly beautiful, and experience the indivisibility of all life, grand new possibilities emerge.
The Spirit of the Place
The Standing Stones Essence® was prepared in the heart of the ring of the Standing Stones of Callanish on the rugged Isle of Lewis off the coast of Scotland. It is a site long recognized for its sense of sacredness and connection to a much larger dimension. Such places have been called “thin places” in the Celtic spiritual traditions, designating a sacred space where the two worlds come together.
A contemporary poet Sharlande Sledge gives this description.
Both seen and unseen,
Where the door between the world
And the next is cracked open for a moment
And the light is not all on the other side.
God shaped space. Holy.
The Essence bridges the worlds, supporting our consciousness to connect with the spirit of the stones, and to experience a sense of profound comfort, peace, and a healing re-connection to ourselves, our human community, and the vast spiritual world beyond our usual perceptions. It brings a greater self confidence and sense of what it means to work from the depths of the authentic self, knowing that we are never alone. It is especially helpful for those who experience a sense of disconnect from their families, communities, or their God.
It supports healers, essence practitioners, therapists and spiritual leaders to be more firmly grounded and in relationship with their deeper spiritual dimensions. It supports the work of change agents in the world, connecting them to new possibilities for resolving conflict and re-establishing kindness among those in conflict.
