A Book of Women's Altars: How to Create Sacred Spaces for Art, Worship, Solace, Celebration
Altars are sacred spaces, corners of our universe where we may rest and connect with our spiritual centre. In this beautifull written book, Nancy Brady Cunningham offers inspiration and instruction to those who want to learn to use altars in their daily lives. Cunningham writes, "The altar becomes a place where the woman can commune with both the personal and the cosmic aspects of herself, where she can reclaim her power and revel in her innate beauty."
Richly illustrated with Denise Geddes's evocative black-and-white photographs, A Book of Women's Altars also offers suggestions for creating altars for special occasions -- the change of seasons, birth, death, blessed and everyday events. When you become aware, every corner becomes an altar!
Nancy Brady Cunningham has been a yoga, meditation, and women's ritual leader for over 30 years. Also an accomplished poet, she is the author several other books.
Denise Geddes is a photography teacher in Massachusetts. Her photographs have appeared in multiple books.
