In this fast-paced world of over-stimulation and distraction, keeping a private space for meditative retreat and spirituality is essential. Creating an altar using the power of numbers allows you to achieve spiritual stillness in a personal and meaningful way.

The numbers one through nine each carry a profound symbolic history and significance. Harness this energy and apply it to your life by selecting the number that best resonates with your intention and using it as a guide to your altar design.

Deepen your spiritual practice
Explore your inner world


With meditation techniques and many examples of prayers, practices, and rituals from all major faiths, popular author and Celtic scholar Sandra Kynes offers a new approach to altar-building. Using representations of elements from myth and nature as focal points, you can create an altar that best suits your spiritual needs.

Straightforward and practical, with easy-to-follow instructions and clear illustrations, this unique book allows you to experience the restorative benefits of altars—and ultimately reconnect with that sacred space within yourself.

Magical correspondences are generally thought of as simple correlations among the elements, directions, seasons, and colors that are frequently used in ritual. What exactly are correspondences? Why do we use them? And how can we use them more effectively? Sandra Kynes, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Correspondences, explains.

For thousands of years, human beings have honored our connection to the earth, seasons, and major life transitions through ceremony, ritual, and storytelling. These practices are the sacred technology of indigenous people and are an inherent part of our past and ancestral wisdom. In these current times of disconnection, feelings of lack and poverty, and polluted air and waters, the importance of creating ceremony is becoming more apparent. Katalin Koda, author of Fire of the Goddess and Sacred Path of Reiki, provides easy ways to create your own ceremony so that we too can reconnect with the earth, empower ourselves, heal, and transform into more balanced humans.

Sandra Kynes, author of Your Altar and A Year of Ritual, explains the importance of ritual.
