The ritual of stacking stones into a pile, called a cairn, is a centuries-old practice used to memorialize people, locations and events. Native Americans assembled cairns for ceremonial purposes, and traditionally these stones are of varying shapes and sizes, indigenous to the area. Cairns are often associated with prayer, the setting of an intention or a quiet meditation.
Mii amo’s Cairn Garden allows our guests to choose the perfect stone to inspire mindfulness as they contemplate and search for the stone that speaks directly to them. Placing a wish stone atop a towering cairn can be meditative and leave one feeling peaceful.
Whether you’re in another location or destination, we invite you to begin your own Cairn Garden and embrace the spiritual experience. Start by carefully choosing stones that represent who you are, and begin stacking your chosen stones into a cairn to keep the flow of energy moving upward in a spiral direction. Build your cairn while quietly setting an intention or prayer for yourself on a daily basis, and remember to appreciate this creation.
