The main reasons to visit or build sacred power centers, says sacred space designer Chuck Pettis, are to have profound mystical experiences, grow spiritually, heal the earth, and meditate to expand one's consciousness. Pettis provides a powerful aid to these purposes with Secrets of Sacred Space
, in which the complicated subjects of geomancy, symbolism, numerology, and astronomical alignments are explained in depth. Secrets of Sacred Space
is not only a guided tour of ancient monuments such as Stonehenge but also a practical manual for creating one's own sacred space, whether with gigantic boulders on a mountain top or tiny shells on a shelf. Readers learn how to choose a sacred site, communicate with spiritual beings, and dowse for earth energies, and they are treated to a plethora of other fascinating and useful occult and practical information needed to create sacred places. --P.
