“Since Anne and Gaela dowsed our property and showed us where to place stones to create a solsticial quadrilateral, many different shifts have happened on our land. We live in the urban corridor where the sound of traffic is quite constant and we had recently moved from a mountain property that was quite quiet. We had a subtle discontent with our new home in suburbia and felt a disconnection with the land and place. We had put in gardens, bees, fruit trees and a chicken coop but we were still not feeling at home yet. When we placed the stones in the four corners of our properties, something subtle shifted. The traffic noise was still there and we were still in suburbia, but something quieted down inside us. We finally arrived home.”
