Cultivating the way of the sacred earth

Through combining her two fields of expertise, Alanna has discovered that implementing a geomantic permaculture design for sustainable food production and living helps to alleviate environmental problems on many levels. In this book she describes how to undertake a sensitive analysis of land capability in order to co-creatively develop a harmonious permaculture plan.


Alanna explains how eliciting nature’s help in the garden and co-operating with the resident fairies can foster harmonious feng shui and the growth of vegetables, as well as nourish our own inner, spiritual gardens. She has discovered that nature spirits continue to be a dynamic force in the landscape. By pendulum dowsing and meditative attunement she finds exactly where these beings are stationed and can thus avoid disturbing them.

Alanna divides her time between Australia and Ireland, both places where knowledge of geomancy ­ the Earth’s subtle, energetic dimensions – has survived relatively well, in understated undercurrents at the least. Indigenous Australians and native Irish are highly intuitive peoples. Like other animist societies, the Irish believed that fairy beings help to care for their crops and livestock and that the ‘Good People’ must always be thanked, and their homes and pathways respected.


“Informing her approach is the idea of sacred custodianship of country, which puts a spiritual perspective on such things as assessing land capability, selecting a home site and designing a living home. Moore is as comfortable with devas and fairies as she is with dealing with waste and pollution, pests and weeds. Read about harmonizing your space in line with natural energies, co-operating with the land and its creatures, building sensitive earthworks and creating a permaculture paradise on a budget.

“Moore explores the Green Man concept and shows how we can attune to the spirit of our own household as well as save seeds for a sustainable eco-future. Her book is an adventure in magical and practical Earth awareness.”Nexus magazine, Feb – Mar 2012
