BOULDER, Colo. Michael Grab is a curious man, and that curiosity led him to his life passion: rock balancing.

The phrase rock balancing doesnt sound like much in and of itself, but in true practice, the meditative exercise involves patience, adaptation, slow-breathing, steady hands and a plethora of other practiced skills to be successful, according to Grab via his website.

He calls much of his rock balancing Gravity Glue, but the only adhesive he uses is literally gravity with any three contact points found on any given rock.

Luckily, every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a natural tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of, with other rocks, he says.

Grab who is from Edmonton, Canada, but lives in Boulder, Colorado began balancing in 2008 on a whim, but it soon because a passion that he practices every day.

I quickly noticed the unique effect that my creations had on myself and others, often inspiring a sense of magic and peace; a sense that anything is possible, Grab says.

The artist now travels around the world to give demonstrations of his perfectly balanced creations. To see Grab in action creating his meditative art, watch this video and visit his YouTube channel.
