Let's try to decode this universal language by reading an excerpt of the geomancer's report before the building process was started.
„On the premises of the future visitor center, I encounter a snake that is guardian of the site. I am talking with the snake and ask it to withdraw and make room for the plan of the visitor center. (...) I am trying to resettle the elementary beings from the felled trees into the hedgerow at the edge of the area towards the Rapunzel premises.(…).
The Rapunzel premises correlate with two important pilgrimage churches nearby. These three institutions form an energetic triangle that has the potential to support the new visitor center and Rapunzel (…).“
Geomancy cannot be directly grasped and understood. We have to rely on our own experience. Rapunzel Managing Director Joseph Wilhelm describes his encounter with geomancy:
„After Marko had visited the site, everything seemed to work very simply and smoothly. And exactly during this time, we received the partial building permit for the visitor center.“
What's next? Rapunzel is already looking forward to a stone that was manufactured by Marko and that depicts a cosmogram. This stone will be a present to the snake, the guardian of the site, and will be installed at her place of retreat.
