Sacred sites are the reason why ancient civilizations maintained their cultures in perfect balance for thousands of years. It's not surprising that since we stopped building and honouring temples, oracles, pyramids, megaliths and other sacred places, modern cultures have disintegrated overnight.

What do sacred sites do for us? And to us? Behind the physical temple there exists a world of metaphor, subtle energy and shamanic states of consciousness. That's where the real temple exists, the invisible temple. And the benefits of engaging with it are extraordinary.

Temples deliberately mirror and enhance the inherent forces in nature. Ancient gods and priests first located energy centers on the landscape that influenced spiritual conduct. Using a combination of geomancy, sacred geometry and earth magic, they selected the most effective sites and designs for temples, which in turn influenced entire countries and the people who dwelled there. Adding astronomy and geology, sacred sites became the meeting places of heavenly and earthly power. And although used for healing, divination and calendrical purposes, ultimately the temples were used as gateways through which one can experience the Otherworld, the subtle world of spirit.

For decades I've walked countless megalithic sites around the world, taking in both their spatial and special qualities. It soon became apparent that temples and standing stones speak. The spirit of place is aware of your presence and purpose. It scans your energy field. Should your PIN match, you engage in an intimate conversation, and your relationship with sacred space begins. You become conscious of an astral library of knowledge at your disposal. Its contents are boundless and timeless, the sum of all there is: codes of creation, ancient systems of knowledge, sound, sacred geometry and measure, and how these can be used to enhance your potential and the quality of life around and within you.

All the elements that make nature tick converge at sacred sites. By carefully blending them it is possible to open a portal of possibility to other levels of reality. You can even apply these laws at home. Depending on what you seek, the experience will alter your consciousness, which is the ultimate purpose of such places of power.

That's what our ancestors were up to, and they left us a global legacy of sacred places. As you walk through this site I hope you become more aware of the qualities that define sacred space, and that you use this information to benefit all living things on Earth. Including yourself.
