These are powerful stones, that have a capacity for knowing what to help move to allow us to grow. A great help as we have a way of ignoring what needs to move, the traumas we hold, after a while that they are with us. While challenging to move through, the freedom that is created by moving the trauma through is worth the effort.

In effects, when the first Indians came up the rivers towards Abitibi, a stop on these beaches made them realized the presence of these strange pebbles which for them; strangely look like ''biscuits''. This is the reason they named the river ''Harricana'' which means ''river of the biscuits'' in Algonquin language.
