Lithopuncture path (Lithopunkturweg)

Open
Lithopuncture is a method of ecological healing and balancing developed by Marko Pogacnik. It is related to acupuncture of the human body. "Lithopuncture" means placement and precise alignment of stone pillars on the power paths or power points of the landscape.
In the columns are carved signs called cosmograms. On a large scale, Bad Radkersburg is connected to a powerful axis of force that connects the Austrian part of Styria with the Gulf of Trieste via the Ljubiljana lowlands. Its function is to keep the European space anchored in its center, balancing it between heaven and earth.

Discover the lithopuncture path
  1. Balance between heaven and earth The cosmogram shows the two poles of the force axis in the form of two spirals dancing with each other.
  2. Inclusion in the force field of the placeThe role of the stone is to include the spiral in the force field of Bad Radkersburg.   
  3. Dynamization and groundingThe stone has the function to ground and dynamize the power spiral. 
  4. Centered in the middleThe stone has the function to connect the power of the spiral with the archetype of Bad Radkersburg, to stimulate the interaction between the spiral and the urban structure.  
  5. Identity of the urban landscapeThe bronze plate is located exactly at the actual source point between the medieval staking point of the city and the Marian column.
  6. The threshold of eternityStone on the hill behind the parish church in Gornja Radgona (Slovenia). Two power lines cross here.
  7. Relationship with Gornja RadgonaConnection between Bad Radkersburg and Gornja Radgona.
  8. Reconnection with the element of waterThis stone supports the watery quality of Bad Radkersburg's geomancy stelae.
In August 2001, Slovenian artists Marko and Marika Pogacnik chiseled out a group of lithopuncture stones and placed them on specific acupuncture points in the village.
