Altars: Bringing Sacred Shrines into Your Everyday Life
TFrom the book: he urge to create sacred spaces is so deep in the human psyche that we often create them unconsciously. A gathering of photos on a piano, an arrangement of personal objects on a desk or fireplace mantel, are perhaps outer manifestations of an inner desire to establish hallowed and holy spaces in our environment.
Denise Linn, the internationally acclaimed author of Sacred Space, speaks directly to this primal longing for sacred places. In Altars, she demonstrates in photos and text how you can enrich your home or office by creating unique shrines for healing and contemplation.
Beautifully illustrated and thoroughly practical, Altars shows how to
Create personal altars for devotion, transitions in life, manifestation, and love
Choose the optimum place to locate your home altar, according to the points of the compass and the ancient principles of feng shui
Select altar objects that are particularly suited to your special needs
Purify yourself and your altars with incense, prayers, drumming, and chanting
Everyone who yearns to enter into the mysterious and wondrous realms, to infuse ordinary moments with sacred meaning, will find a great abundance of beauty, inspiration, and wisdom in this unique book.
