“The Book of Stones has elevated the spiritual knowledge of crytals into a higher form. The classification of each stone is impeccable, along with wonderful photos – creating an intimate connection with a wide variety of minerals. This book offers us all an opportunity to sharpen our skills and renew our interest in the crystal healing world.”
-Dr. Eric Pearl, author of the international bestseller The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself
“In this time of social fragmentation and isolation, many of us who work to reclaim remembrance and participation in the living world lament the scarcity of elders and initiators to guide our efforts. As if in answer to our need, The Book of Stones carries us outside the human world to a gathering of wise elders. Here the stone people speak to us, in many voices, of forgotten stories and unknown wisdoms that will sustain us on the path of soul.”
-Daniel Deardorff, author of The Other Within: The Genius of Deformity in Myth, Culture, & Psyche

-Thom Hartmann, author of The Prophet’s Way and The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight
