The Spiritual Power of Masks: Doorways to Realms Unseen

by Nigel Pennick Author

Masks have been used in ritual practices for centuries, thought to allow the wearer to personify an ancestral presence, spirit, deity, or other higher power. In this illustrated study, The Spiritual Power of Masks  explores the magical and spiritual aspects of mask wearing, from ancient times to the present day. With a focus on mask traditions in Europe and how mask rituals are similar to shamanic journeying, this book examines how the persona of the mask can be tied to original creation myths within a culture, allowing us in present day to connect with traditions that our ancestors likely partook in.
