Book Description

Buddha Beach: Sedona Arizona

A Hidden Gem In The Southwest

Rock cairns populate the area known as Buddha Beach at the Cathedral Rock Vortex along Oak Creek in Sedona. There are literally hundreds of tiny hand crafted rock piles, made from rocks and stones along the shore. Buddha Beach is part of Oak Creek where the creek widens and in warm weather people go wading and swimming. People also cross the creek to get to the trails on the other side.

Full Color Photographs

Photographers Deborah Carney, Liz Fogg and Alec Ababon capture the rock "buddhas" that caught their eye in a blend of beautiful imagery. Each photo has its own message; take the time to find it.

Quotes from Buddha

As I (Deborah Carney) was photographing the tiny (and not so tiny) rock structures I knew they had to be paired with quotes and sayings from Buddha. I hope you will enjoy this journey through Buddha Beach paired with some insightful quotations. Buddha quotes need to be read slowly for the meaning to come to you. Many are open to interpretation, which means you will read the meaning you need to see and hear.

Find Your Buddha

Flip through the images in this book to find the Buddha that is yours. There will be one, or more, that will catch your eye and invite you to meditate on it's beauty.

Fire and Storms

The photographs in this book are unique. As a result of fires the summer of 2014 and extreme storms, many of the rock cairns in this book were destroyed. In their place are new ones, but the cairns in this book mostly do not exist. I went back after the fires and storms and was saddened to see so many gone, yet heartened to see so many new and different ones in their place. Truly a living meditation garden of rocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meditative! February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great little book for anytime, but especially those times you need to take a breath, calm down, and find a little peace. Well-chosen quotes and quirky little stone photos - read a quote and sink into a little abstract rock sculpture, take a breath, and do it again until you feel grounded. The author and photographers included the Sedona vibe in this book's digital bits!

This book is a collection of beautiful photography of rock cairns (sometimes known as Ebenezer rocks) at the Cathedral Rock Vortex in Sedona, Arizona. Accompanying each photograph is a quote from Buddha. While the e-book version I have is still lovely, I suggest purchasing a hardcopy of the book so that you may truly appreciate the photography.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I enjoyed the photographs in this collection and found the accompanying sayings to be very thought provoking. It isn't something that I would find myself wanting to reread but that's just me.
