Peg Streep

The first complete book on altars and altar building, Altars Made Easy explores the creation of sacred space-in the home, in the office, in the garden, even in temporary surroundings-as a powerful tool of trans-formation and spiritual development. What is sacred space? It is a place where, as Joseph Campbell put it, wonder can be revealed. In a single volume, you will learn, step by step, how to creat altars that focus energy and reflect the spirit, including: Understanding the language of sacred space Creating altars for special needs Choosing materials, colors, and staturary Empowering your altar with signs and symbols Energizing sacred space with light, smoke and scent Using gemstones and minerals Drawing on the power of totems and guardians Building outdoor altars, and much, much more. Beautifully illustrated, this volume contains a full resource section and is filled with examples to help you create sacred space. With Altars Made Easy you have everything you need to create you own unique altar for meditation, reflection, prayer, and revelation. Peg Streep is a writer and editor who has researched sacred places, altars, and ancient mythology for nearly a decade.
