Synopses & Reviews
Altars are everywhere. In executive suites and private homes, in restaurants and gardens - whether religious in focus or not - people are reinventing the altar in new and imaginative ways. From a simple cherished photo surrounded by candles and shells that serves to attract the eye and draw the mind into gentle contemplation, to a more elaborate expression of personal style, altars bring peace and a place of beauty into daily life. In this first complete handbook on altars, Peg Streep shows readers how to use specific materials, colours, symbols, imagery, scents, crystals, music, and more to create their own personal altars. Streep covers the history, symbolism, and different types of the altar and provides detailed and fully illustrated guidance for anyone to create and enjoy sacred space. A discussion of offerings and rituals, along with a handy resource section, make this volume definitive, Altars Made Easy, makes the process simple and fun.
Like a guardian angel whispering in your ear...
Angel Wisdom puts you in touch with the warmth, encouragement, and insight of your heavenly helpers every day.
Some say angels--intermediaries from on high--have always been among us to give us hope and inspiration, to light our paths and make our steps lighter, and to show us that where there is life there is joy. But daily life being what it is, we can sometimes use a little help.
As you flip through these pages, you'll see beautifully illustrated angels take wing and you'll find reflections, reminders, and exercises that bring grace, serenity, and joy down to earth and within easy reach.
Despite its burgeoning influence, few people truly understand the core beliefs, traditions, and movements of this popular Eastern religion. Robert Thurman, professor of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University, has assembled the first guide to Tibetan Buddhism that introduces the distinctive Tibetan practice through its own rich literature. He includes excerpts from The Book of the Dead as well as lesser known but comparable scriptures. Essential Tibetan Buddhism is a part of The Essential Series, beautifully packaged works that feature the core texts of major religious traditions in definitive translations, edited by leading authorities.
This collection of thoughts and meditations is inspired by the angels. Each page explores a separate topic designed to help readers tune in to their "angel consciousness" and tap in to the happiness their guardian angels hold in store.
