"The creation of an altar is a sacred act, an act of power and grace. For a few timeless minutes you enter a dimension beyond ordinary reality, where light, sound, and energy merge into an exquisite state of being." The human urge to create physical sacred centers for our lives is so deep that we often create them unconsciously. Photos on the dresser, personal objects on our desk or around the computer are tangible tokens of our longing for balance and wholeness--and of our attempts to strengthen connections between our loved ones, nature and community, and other great sources of spiritual power. The internationally acclaimed author of Sacred Space, Denise Linn, speaks directly to this primal need for hallowed and holy places. In Altars, she demonstrates in photos and text how you can further enrich the areas around us at home or in the office by creating unique shrines for personal devotions, intimate centers for healing and contemplation. Beautifully illustrated and thoroughly practical, Altars shows how to - Create personal altars for prayer and devotion, stillness and listening, loss and mourning, relationships and love, and connecting with the life energy - Find the right place to install a home shrine, according to the points of the compass and the ancient and honored principles of feng shui - Select altar objects that are particularly suited to your special needs - Purify yourself and your altars with incense, prayers, drumming, and chanting - And much more! Everyone who yearns to draw near the mysterious and wondrous, to infuse ordinary moments with sacred meaning, will find a great wealth of beauty, inspiration, and wisdom in this unique book.… (mere)

The verbage-to-useful-info ratio is pretty poor. I would've liked more specific information on different cultural/religious traditions, or more structured how-tos, or even just a citation now and then (there are too many vague statements about what "native peoples" thought and did, and no bibliography). It looks like a reference book, but it's just one woman's unresearched feelings/ideas about altars.

The two stars are for the photos, which are great! I wish the publisher had commissioned a book of altar photos instead. ( )

Have you guessed that I am a fan of Denise Linn? Altars by Denise Linn has over 100 photos and drawings to illustrate the ideas in the book. You'll come away with many ways to incorporate your intentions into your space easily. This book is out of print. Many copies are available on the used market. ( )
