10. Rock Balancing
All these rock formations are done using nothing more that the rocks themselves. No glue, no supports, just pure understanding and balance.
So how are they done? Michael says he does it by finding the required minimum of 3 contact points on each rock.
8. Rock Balancing
Michael feels each rock to find tiny to large indentations that can act as a natural tripod so the rock can balance.
But of course, some of these indentations are felt on a scale smaller than millimeters, and in rare cases can even go undetected even by him.

He does all these because he has a calm mind thanks to meditating while doing it. Some point-balances give the illusion of weightlessness, but in each rock those 3 pivot points are there.
For those of us wanting to try this art form out Michael’s big tip is to play and experiment with each one, until you realize what it is you are feeling for and looking for.
4. Rock Balancing
Achieving this high level of rock balancing skill requires total contemplation of both the mental and physical elements in real time.
Apparently it is easier to start with smaller rocks, then end up with bigger, easier ones on top of those.

Michael does most of his work in Canada, but his skills have taken him all over the world because he creates such stunning structures.
So do you feel up to trying some yourself? Find some rocks, clear your mind and go for it. The worst that could happen is your rock falls down, which means you can simply try, try again.
