In 2001, Marko and Ana Pogacnik set out on a pilgrimage with a group of people interested in geomancy and looking for ways to achieve lasting peace. They travelled along the archetypal path that leads from the Pyramids in Egypt, across the Sinai Peninsula to Jerusalem. Along the way, they visited the holy sites of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The first part of this book explores the vital energy of these ancient sites, providing a remarkable overview of the planetary role and true identity of the Holy Land. The book includes seven meditations and eight cosmograms to promote peace and healing in the Middle East.

The second part of the book contains inspiring messages received by Ana which encourage us to follow our chosen path with increased self-awareness.

This is a timely book for an understanding of the deeper importance of the Holy Land and the events and people of the region.
