Product description


This examination of the place of the altar in the home discusses how we can each make a space for an altar in our own home. A special place such as this can be the focal point for celebrating and remembering events in our lives. As well as suggesting how we can bring this new dimension to the home, the author looks at different rituals and ceremonies from around the world.

From the Back Cover

Often seriously lacking in our busy modern schedules, rituals and ceremony can bring richness and meaning to everyday life, allowing us to reconnect with each other and our own psyches.

In a time when many of us live far away from our families and some of us don’t even know our neighbours, rituals can bring a sense of community and belonging.

The rituals in this book cover time-management, the home, mealtime blessings, self – cleansing, sexuality and the life cycle. Practical and simple to follow, they can be used as they are or adapted to suit any event or occasion.

Presented in step-by-step sequences with clear instructions, 'Rituals for Sacred Living' will enable you to enrich your life with a sense of the sacred.

Sacred living is to live and work in complete harmony with oneself, one’s friends, family and co-workers and with the environment.There are many paths to the sacred, even if we don’t have any fixed system for connecting with the sacred in our lives.

Bring the sacred into your home by building altars inside your house, cleanse and bless your home to create a sacred space for living, and rid your self, home or office of negative thoughts and the bad psychic energy that could be holding you back.

Learn how to cleanse your space after an argument, dedicate your bedroom and discover sacred sex . Enrich special occasions by carrying out simple rituals and ceremonies or celebrate the changing seasons of the year. By taking time and careto appreciate the regular routines you can begin to value the importance of occasions that may have become mundane. Getting in touch with the sacred can help you find order, energy and happiness in the fundamental parts of your life which are, in essence, sacred.
