On Holy Ground

by Cheif Luisah Teish & Kahuna Leilani

The decision to write this book is born out of 20-30 years of experience.  We are blessed to be two women of color who have grown up in a spiritual culture that has survived centuries of oppression and kept its regard for the sacredness of Land intact and in the forefront of our behavior and rituals.

However, we also recognize that ritual protocol is not taught in school and is not available even in schools with Spirituality Departments and in only a few of the books presently on the shelf.

So, we decided to write this book as an offering of guidelines and protocols to heal our relationship to sacred lands and to each other.  We encourage its use as a means to insure the re-creation of our Earth-centered traditions and the evolution of a global and authentic spiritual practice.”

On Holy Ground is a self-published, quality paperback.  It contains our personal stories, cultural myths and folktales, prayers, chants, rituals, and exercises to help you define your relationship to Mother Earth and Her Children.  It also contains photographs from our travels to several sacred sites and our original artwork.  This book will be useful to those wishing to travel as kindred spirits, to address ecological and environmental issues, and to experience the joys of rituals in nature.


$18.00 plus $4 for shipping and handling = $22.  Please PayPal (please put OHG and your current shipping address in the notes/description area, Paypal button is at the top and bottom of the page)
