Sacred Landscapes: The Threshold Between Worldsby A. T. Mann, Lynn Davis (Photographer)
If we are fortunate, during our lives we will visit a place that evokes the sacred and resonates with our deeper selves. This stunning volume, with breathtaking images by Lynn Davis and insightful text by new-age author A. T. Mann, captures just such magical spaces-archetypal and architectural manifestations of the sacred. Davis and Mann illustrate the many ways in which people have used and understood their sacred landscapes throughout history and around the world, from hillside Celtic oak initiation groves to Megalithic open-air sanctuaries to Machu Picchu and Oregon's Crater Lake. Sacred Landscapes reinforces the imperative for us to rediscover beauty and reaffirm our relationship with nature.
