5.0 out of 5 stars The sacred in mind and nature, 9 July 2004

This review is from: The Sacred Place: The Ancient Origin of Holy and Mystical Sites (Hardcover)
This compelling work investigates holy places and their relationship to mankind's spiritual awareness. The author believes that monuments and temples have their roots in natural features of the landscape that inspired the religious impulse.
Part One: Ancient Mind, Holy Land looks at the spirit of place, memory and the variety of sacred places, whilst Part Two explores rock art in Southern Africa, the Americas, Australia and Atlantic Europe, Palaeolithic cave paintings and natural sacred places like ritual caves, sacred mountains trees and wells.
Part Three investigates magic markings, shadow play, quartz and rock art, and Part Four deals with the geographies of the ancient soul as it manifested in stone age sacred geometry, stone circles, standing stones, Minoan and Greek temples.
The author concludes that here have always been profound interactions between mind and nature and that there is a spiritual power in the natural world that resonates within the heart and mind of mankind.
This thought provoking book is lavishly illustrated with full color photographs and maps and concludes with a bibliography and index. I also recommend The Mind In The Cave: Consciousness And The Origins Of Art by David Lewis-Williams.
