Voices Out of Stone
Natasha Hoffman / Carolyn North, Findhorm Press, 2010
Voices Out of Stone will take you on a physical and spiritual journey to discover the messages hidden within the standing stones of Carnac.
This book is a collaboration with the American author Carolyn North, each of us writing alternate chapters. We have never met! The remarkably similar experiences we shared at Carnac, at different times yet often at the same stones, notably at the Kercado dolmen, led us to work together. These are personal, individual accounts of our adventures, not only at the Carnac megaliths and the nearby island of Gavrinis, but at other significant sites, in the north of France for instance, at Chaco Canyon in the States, even in San Francisco.
We hope you will find inspiration in these stories. They contain dictated messages from the Archangels that resonate strongly with the information set out at greater length in The Standing Stones Speak. This is a book in conversational style, covering matters like the crop circle phenomenon, Carl Jung and synchronicity, the significance of the spiral and the labyrinth, Sumerian mathematics. There are references to the American Indians, the Aborigines, Pharaonic Egypt, and the Knights Templar, their beliefs and legacy, in a commentary upon our lives today, so busy yet uneasy and lacking the essential spiritual dimension.
The chapter entitled The Many-Splendoured Thing is central to the book, describing Angelic archetypes in the light of the Hebrew model of the Universe, the Kabbalah Tree of Life. That concept originates in the world of spirit, in which the Archangels, our guides, and our souls, have always had their being. It leads on to a summary of the world’s energetic grid patterns, the straight Ley Lines and the sinuous Michael and Mary Currents (known in Europe as Apollo and Athena), way-marked in stone by our ancestors, upon which stands every ancient numinous structure - whether dolmen, stone circle, temple, mosque or church. Included is a brief description of the other world-wide lattices or grids of planetary energy, such as the Hartmann, Curry, Wittmann and so on.
Natasha has provided drawings to illustrate the wide range of subject-matter, Hamilton has supplied an overview in a foreword and afterword, and there is a map of the Morbihan area of Brittany showing the location of the principal sites.
George Seferis, Greek poet, put it like this:
Voices out of stone, out of sleep,
Voices more deep here,
Where the world grows dark.

‘A fascinating read of mystic adventures in the extraordinary landscape of Brittany’

'As two remarkable women interweave their separate but converging explorations, ancestral wisdom comes alive again. Through their adventures and studies of prehistoric megaliths comes knowledge so urgently needed in our time’ Joanna Macy author of World as Lover, World as Self.
