Description

From Publishers Weekly
Altman (Sacred Trees; Healing Springs) has created another engaging and useful volume that integrates the natural world with the human need for the sacred, "a thing or a place... somehow able to energize within us those feelings and concepts we associate with the spiritual dimensions of life." Much more than a comparative religion study, this book begins at the beginning, with the simple science of water inside and outside our bodies. Altman addresses the usual suspects (rivers, wells, oceans, etc.), but also includes the unexpected, such as bridges, agriculture, hammams (Muslim sweat baths) and even sewage treatment. More than 60 illustrations visually convey the global scope of the work, and varied chapters (e.g., "Sacred Space," "Cleansing," "Healing," "Initiation," "Wisdom," and "Enchantment") literally cover the rainbow and much more. In addition to the so-called major religions, Altman includes Sikh, Jain, Shinto, ancient Greek and Native American views on water. With so much material to cover, the sense is that Altman opted for breadth over depth, tantalizing readers with the possibilities of this essential element for life. Easy to read, this is a true companion volume to Sacred Trees, as both point toward ways to appreciate our common essentials. Readers interested in ecology, spirituality or a combination of the two will definitely want to purchase this cornerstone work.
