Sacred places revisited: a resonant new follow-up to the bestselling Touch the Earth.
Touch the Earth struck a chord deep inside all of us, a far-seeing forerunner to our current fascination with the untapped, spiritual part of ourselves. This bestselling phenomenon, which has sold over 400,000 copies and is in its 20th printing, introduces the reader to the sacred nature of land in Native North American life.
Now, in Cathedrals of the Spirit , T.C. McLuhan takes us on a pilgrimage to the spiritual centers of the earth, both man-made and natural, from the grand temples of the Yun Kang caves in Northern China and primeval mountain peaks to the sublime, ancient Aboriginal sand sculptures of northern Australia and the ultimate cathedral that rests within -- the Eternal Self. As she says, "The experience of a sacred place and hence sacredness itself is re-entry into a state of wholeness -- an introduction to your true origins. The goal of this book is to re-introduce you to yourself." Cathedrals of the Spirit is a visionary new book and a wonderful sequel to Touch the Earth.
