Hey all.  I have been to the doctor and have a bit of an infection that has to be taken care of with antibiotics and some rest.  Need a week or so to recuperate.  After that, I'm coming back.  I guess it's time to take better care of myself.

Here is a NEW interview I did in 2013 with wearenotzombies.tv  out of Mexico.

This is a really well done interview, excellent quality and great shots.  Tells you everything about myself and what I'm doing.  I also had long hair here as opposed to my shaved head as of late.  Hope you enjoy.

John Shaver will be on the shore balancing a multitude of stones between English Bay beach and Second Beach from about 12 noon until the Sun hides behind the mountains, which he is doing at around 8pm-ish these days.  So come down and see the impossible made possible in front of your very eyes!  Hope to see you there.

Either the heat is getting to me or I'm still on the tail end of this flu that is going 'round the city.  I'm going to tentatively cancel todays display because I might pass out due to dehydration. So I'm going to drink some hot lemon tea today and see how I'm doing tomorrow (Wednesday Aug 27th 2014).  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hey everybody!  Happy BC Day!!!  What better way to celebrate than to watch some inspiring art in the form of balanced stones?  Monday August 4th 2014 from noon until 8pm-ish John Shaver will be live balancing impossibly balanced stones with a speed that seems impossible...IN FRONT OF YOUR VERY EYES !!!  So come on down to the shoreline between English Bay beach and Second Beach/Pool and take some pictures, meditate, or just say hello to the Artist.  Hope to see you there.  Have a great day!!!

As you sit and gaze at the stones standing as if at attention, you are to identify (at your leisure) with one of them. One represents who you are and what you are, but only you can know which one of them is "you". When you associate with that stone, you must realize that one day, one moment, that stone will fall. And so you will too, so take in the moment and know that this life is temporary...all must fall so enjoy right now.
