Note: The book is composed of text, illustrative drawings and meditations, the two last designed to take the reader's consciousness to deeper levels than would be accomplished by the text alone. There are 23 chapters of text devoted to the places and landscapes that form the solid foundation for the energetic spiral circling the earth, and a further 36 dealing with various themes that are crucial to this current epoch of great transformation.

Marko Poganik, born in Kranj, Slovenia, studied sculpture and acquired an international reputation in conceptual and landscape art. He has developed this further into 'earth lithopuncture', which aims at healing disturbed landscapes and power points. He travels worldwide to deliver seminars in earth healing, provides advice on landscape matters for communities and businesses and observes changes in earth's spiritual landscape, taking corrective action where necessary and possible with the help of his numerous students and assistants. President of, and lecturer at, the Hagia Chora School for Geomancy in Germany, founded in 1995.
"...Marko Pogacnik brings us transformative understanding and practices to heal the deep, life-threatening split in our western psyche; the split between body and soul, between sacred nature and spiritual gnosis. His work and guidance are priceless for us now." Sidney Lanier, co-founder with Barbara Marx-Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution. On Nature Spirits and Elemental Beings. "This is a remarkable book by one of Europe's most important spiritual teachers. It provides unique and entertaining insights into the world of earth spirits and fairy folk. This is important information for the imagination and for healing the earth." William Bloom
