Stone Stories by Graduate Students
California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS)
This stone is the Anima Mundi.
There is a vast landscape, the world and a tree. The tree is at the heart of the world and there is a wet hole in the tree where you can see through another world. And at the heart of the world there is a stone-crone. She looks liek a mummy with bandages on her face, one eye visible. On her chin she has trees for whiskers. And if we see deep inside there is a rupture, and Heaven and Earth are coming apart. It's also the deepest wound and ther is dried blood. That's why she is looking out from inside the heart of the world. She ahs something to say... but she has not voice. She has no mouth... She just has one eye.
