Workshops

 

My journey - much like yours - has been long and complex. I have had beautiful moments of victory... and incredibly humbling moments of defeat. 

The art of stone balancing has given me the skill to lean into doubt, push past my own fear, and access the infinite potential that surrounds us all.

I have taught thousands of people how to balance a single stone in the most difficult way possible, and they all get that same incredible smile when their first balanced stone finally locks into place. 

Regardless of age, skin color, or religious belief - the stone treats us all the same. This art form teaches presence, connection with the earth, and acts as a beautiful metaphor for whatever vision you are trying to achieve.

TESTIMONIALS

Diane K.

To say this experience was amazing or inspiring would be a gross understatement. Travis is the kindest, most encouraging and compassionate person. You can be open and honest about anything and there is no judgment. He makes no assumptions. And Travis doesn't tell you what to do, he teaches you a whole new way of looking at things. He challenges you to be present in a way I didn't think was possible - and it is. The entire time, he is there supporting you, checking in with you, guiding you. I could not be more grateful to Travis for this experience. It is truly one of the greatest things I've ever done on a whim. It isn't about trying to balance some rocks. It's about connection and energy and so many other things. Step outside your comfort zone, wear comfortable shoes and do this. Until you do it, you won't understand. So do it. And after you do? This review will make a lot more sense and I challenge you to adequately articulate how profound and amazing the time you spend with Travis will be. Thank you for everything Travis. I will never, ever forget this experience and the deeply buried inner strength you helped me find.

Mindbending experience!

 

Anna

Awesome experience. Travis was very good at communicating all the details and it was very well planned and executed. 

 

Rui

Before this experience, I could never imagine how to balance rocks rather than piling them up. Really magical, or more, science. It's not easy at the beginning to build good attach points and dynamically find weight center. I am still practicing. Travis guided us through and share his thoughts. It's also a good time to concentrate and talk to yourself. Feel less stressful after several hours playing with rocks. A nice getaway from your daily routine. I think yall will have fun.

 

Yi

Definitely a high light of my trip in SF. I enjoyed the moment to be present when doing the stone balancing. You will also see several good spots to view the bridge and the channel along the hiking trail. And Travis is a cool person to talk and share thoughts. I really enjoyed the time with him. Very nice!

 

Prem Anand

Travis is a great guide. He taught me something I would never would have imagined in a thousand years. It was a nice experience. I highly recommend.

 

Angela

This was a meditative and spiritual experience for me. Starting with the birdsong filled journey and landing on the beach in a relaxed and present state of mind. Balancing gravity's pull on the rocks with gentle and slight movements to find a point of strength held my full attention. All along, the sound of crashing waves against huge rock formations brought peace and reinforced the theme of construction and destruction in the world. 

 

Kimberly

This is one of those experiences that marinates in your mind for several weeks after and one you will never forget. I notice the experiences are really booking up and it's because this is one of the most unique and soulful outings I have ever had. I took my adult daughter who is always going 99 MPH and we really enjoyed the chance to slow down and learn something interesting and internal while being among breathtaking beauty. We got some great pictures and learned a healing art together that we will have forever. Travis has a gift and you will come away inspired, enriched and just plain better as he shares it with you. Thank you, Travis. I highly recommend this!

It's an unforgettable experience, I never taught I could do balancing of rocks in such less time. Travis enlightened us about basics of rock balancing and was very patient till we did do balancing ourselves. The view was spectacular and I would strongly recommend this for anyone.

Sherylrose

I think the overall experience was perfect. It's a unique event and very much about what you allow yourself to do. It requires patience and focus and a little bit of hand and eye coordination... My take on this is ,what you bring into it is what you get. It was a lovely perfect day. Thank you. It's a skill you can keep; practice and play when you can.

It was a fun experience. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Great experience!

Travis was a really nice guy, and the whole experience was very exciting. After a short walk to the beach location through the park, we did a breathing exercise and then we learned how to balance rocks. Will definitely do it again!

It is a very nice experience, even if you don't find success at stacking rocks. I went with my daughter and we both liked it and will remember it for a long time.

 

Sufiya

What an experience! 1st the location that Travis selected is as good as it gets! The views are absolutely breathtaking. I kept stopping to snap pics and Travis was super chill about it. Overall Travis was a terrific host, his approach is warm, open and insightful. The experience was incredibly unique. For me personally, it was a moving meditation, which allowed me to self reflect and I walked away with some gems/lessons that can be applied to every day life. Who knew! This is really a special experience! 

 

Judith

Nothing could have been better. Travis was the embodiment of consideration and patience. Of being there for you and giving you space. Excellent and thank you. 

 

Vishwa

Anything close to nature is great for me. A short hike and you area on the beach. Travis is very kind. Only thing I would want is if the meditation/breathing part was for a bit longer. Overall fun activity. 

 

Tommy

Travis not only showed us some cool techniques, he also inspired us to disconnect from the grind. It was even better to the backdrop of the golden gate bridge and the crashing waves on the rocky shore. Thanks Travis! 

 

Nicole & Anuj

Travis makes it possible for anyone to balance rocks and makes the whole experience of a beautiful corner of SF great.

 

Brian

Complete 'six senses' experience. Travis provided the leadership, nurturing & artistic chops to guide us safely past our personal limits of creative, mental & physical doubt, to see what's possible.

 

Lily

Such an awesome experience. It was the perfect way to spend an evening, with some light-moderate exercise, an awesome view, and a really unique activity to help clear your mind. Travis has great things to say and was an awesome host - even gave some tips on how to get a good instagram picture of our work! Would definitely recommend this experience for both visitors and locals.

 

Sean

This was a great experience. The hike is exceedingly beautiful, and learning how to balance a rock on its end is one of those simple thrills that can really put life into perspective. The waves crashing and sunset provided an extremely meditative experience, and I can't wait to get back to build in the experience. 

 

Tang

It was a very cool experience. Travis is very nice teacher and his rock balancing skill is amazing. I met new friends, discovered secret scenery, made my own artwork during the activity:) Worth to try! 

 

Lauren-Dillon

We had a great time hiking and learning something so new. Travis is an awesome teacher and the location was perfect!

 

Angel

Travis knows pretty well about spiritual and equilibrium subjects. He combines the theory so perfectly and makes you see life while you're trying to build rock towers. He brought more light to my life with this experience. I fully recommend this experience, the location is amazing. Thank you Travis. 

 

Jimmy

Travis had a great energy about him. I left this experience very calm and relaxed. He coached me through a difficult rock balance and would definitely recommend his experience. 

 

Viswa

This was a nice Zen experience. Imagine yourself being in a rocky place along the beach with almost no one around you, listening to the periods of Wave gush followed by silence with almost nothing to do except focus on the weight and balance of the rock in your hands and you walk out feeling amazed.

 

Danny

Rock stacking was really fun! Travis was a great teacher. Everyone in my group was surprised with how quickly they caught on. 

 

Nathanael

Learning the basics of rock balancing was both easier and just as fun as I expected. Travis is a great host and I appreciated how he weaved mindfulness into his art. This is an exquisitely simple and laid-back experience. You should have it.
