Are you interested in the topic of sacred landscape in Ireland?
This book “Spirit of the Burren” is, according to many readers, an insightful, thought-provoking study into probably the most unusual and most sacred landscape in Ireland. As a progression from her popular books on Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, Jackie Queally is successfully carving a new genre she calls “spiritual geography”. These pages are liberally sprinkled with references to earth energies, and readers find they experience an almost meditative connectivity with the Burren, an area of outstanding beauty in the far west of Ireland where Jackie resides.
Jackie was inspired to write the book based on the theme of the Five Element theory used in Chinese Traditional Medicine. She was training in sonic acupuncture which can harmonize the human body through paying attention to the Five Elements that the meridians represent. Believing the earth is also a living body, Jackie applied the same principles to the land, using the Burren as the backdrop. Using each of the five elements in turn she views the Burren from the angles of water, wood, fire, earth and metal/ether.
She concludes with an all-embracing perspective of an evolving higher consciousness that offers much hope for the future.J
