Ancient Wisdom: Earth Traditions in the Twenty-First Century
Carlton Books, Limited, Oct 28, 2002 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 224 pages
Our ancesiors' beliefs contain within them the seeds of universal truths that have transcended time and can be found in many of our beliefs today. Indeed, in many parts of the world, inherent belief systems continue to be practiced. Ancient Wisdom looks at the fundamentals of these belief systems, how they have shaped the societies in which they are based, and what they can offer us in the fast-paced, technological society we inhabit today. The shared human quest to make sense of our lives and our place in the cosmos is the common characteristic to be found in all the spiritual and magical traditions that are included in this book.
