1. Sacred Mountains Allerd Stikker
Bene Factum Publishing
When Dutch industrialist Allerd Stikker discovered Daoism on a business trip to Taiwan it began to change his way of thinking as well as leading him to become involved in the revival of Daoism itself and its emergence as a force for environmentalism in modern China. Sacred Mountains tells the remarkable personal, spiritual and political story of how this once reviled ancient philosophy has come to play a significant role in shaping the future both of China and our planet as a whole.

2. Sacred Land Martin Palmer
Religious historian and broadcaster Martin Palmer's latest book shows how to decode every aspect of the British landscape to reveal the sacred mediaeval planning hidden in the modern city. The book, which has a foreword by Melvyn Bragg, was inspired by a conversation Martin Palmer had with a Russian Orthodox priest who explained that Moscow was laid out according to images in the Bible's Book of Revelation. Learning that every city in Europe built before the 18th century also incorporated circles, triangles and crossroads symbolising the unity of God, the Trinity and the crucifixion changed Martin's view of the world: "For decades we have travelled the world to find sacred India, sacred Egypt or sacred China without realising that we walk on sacred ancient land here. This is a guide to rediscovering the stories and beliefs which have literally shaped Britain." Read more.
