The soul is the ultimate human unknown. The Secret Language of the Soul is a visual directory of the ways that cultures worldwide, both ancient and modern, have attempted to answer its mysteries. The scope is vast, from Zen Buddhism to Catholicism, and encompassing traditions as varied as the Siberian shaman, who travels in a trance to the spirit world, to Nigerian Tree Spirits, whose lofty homes are guarded by spirit figures carved into the trees trunk. Author Jane Hope describes the worlds major and obscure spiritual and religious beliefs, as well as concepts such as destiny, enlightenment, and salvation that shape our understanding of the purpose of the soul. Intriguing and written in an easy and engaging way, The Secret Language of the Soul paints the landscapes of the spiritual world in vibrant color.
