Description

See the world through new eyes-those of the ancient lost civilizations. Discover why Siberian shamans revered the North Star, and Mayans created white ways in jungles. Share the divination secrets of the Chinese and the Celts. Experience the driving force behind the great Buddhist and Aztec pilgrimages.

This ground-breaking guide visits major historical sites around the world in order to excavate the fundamental principles of ancient wisdom, showing how these principles can be understood and used beneficially today. Leading earth-mysteries expert Paul Devereux explores hundreds of sacred locations, beliefs and lifestyles, explaining how ancient peoples once connected with their surroundings.
He reveals:

Four of the key inspirational themes of antiquity-sacred centres, pilgrimage, sacred geography and divination

What major sites and related practices can tell us about their creator and performers
Practical techniques and exercises through which we can enter the ancient mindset and experience our world from a radically different vantage point

Living ancient Wisdom allows us to understand history from the perspective of those who lived it. We can begin to experience the world as our ancestors once did and apply their ancient wisdom to enhance our own 21st-century lives.
