Gaia (Octopus Publishing Group)
This brings together for the first time in one volume a full picture of ancient sacred geography, the merging of the physical environment with the human mind or soul. Comprehensive, updated and referenced, this richly illustrated work spans the globe and plumbs the ages to reveal the variety of ways in which people have invested their landscapes with mythological and spiritual meaning. From mysterious ground markings in the Americas to religious soundscapes in Asia, from choreographed pilgrimage geographies to Zen gardens, SACRED GEOGRAPHY describes in text and full-colour pictures the magical mindscapes of our ancestors.
