The Gourdgal Studio makes Worry Bowls. They are a meditative, hands-on activity intended to relieve stress. Smooth stones are placed in a gourd bowl with a papercutting of a tree or heart at the bottom. The owner can sit quietly and run his/her fingers through the stones for a time. This activity tends to have a soothing effect at the end of a long day.
It is believed that the worries of the day release into the stones and in some cases relaxes the owner enough to allow a gentle but deep nap. We've been told the stones can be purified (emptied of all that stress) by sitting them in the sun periodically.
