OverviewThis book, like a magic carpet, takes readers to Delos. First, it tells them about the history and mythology and about how light and art helped make miracles here. Next it takes them into the ancient people's homes and shops to see Delos out of the eyes of those who lived there. The archaeological section includes drawings with particular points of interest identified and captioned. Finally, the book presents 12 power places on Delos where people experienced miracles for thousands of years, with a map for pilgrimage to those places and suggestions for brief, longer, and multiple day visits to the island. Ceremonies and guided imagery are suggested that invite the visitor—or reader—to experience in the present time the power of Delos to change your life.
