Seven Sacred Sites : Magical Journeys That Will Change Your Life
Take a journey to the most sacred places on earth, and awaken the magic of your own heart, with this book that is part spiritual adventure story, part history, part travel guide. Follow the author as she awakens to the divine in Machu Picchu and the jungles of the Amazon, goes beyond the mists in Glastonbury, the magical Isle of Avalon, to reconnect with her own enchanted self, witnesses the masculine and feminine face of the divine in Ancient Egypt's mystical pyramids and temples, walks the pilgrimage path of the Camino in Spain on a journey towards her inner self, experiences the pure joy of the dolphins, rainbows and goddesses in the powerful earth energies of Hawaii, feels the magic and wisdom of the ancient megaliths of Stonehenge, and finds a sense of place at Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia. Discover what makes these places sacred, when to go and how to get there, the history of each site, the rituals that were performed there, their cultural and magical significance, and the way they inspire, touch and initiate growth and learning in all visitors. Just as importantly, find out how to attain the state of grace and sacredness inspired by each place without leaving home. Including postcards from authors and teachers Shirley MacLaine, Doreen Virtue, Cassandra Eason, Lucy Cavendish, Elisabeth Jensen, Colette Baron-Reid, Jude Currivan and Alberto Villoldo, this book will send you on a journey to the most beautiful places on the planet as well as the deepest, most sacred places within your self, and open you up to the magic of the universe, within and without. "Seven Sacred Sites is a must-read. This spiritual, historical and geographical journey will help you discover not only about our wondrous surroundings but, more importantly, yourself as well."
