Delos the Island of Miracles: How Delos Can Help You Find a Miracle, Become Your Own Oracle, and Change Your Life
By George Voulgaris, Dimitra Voulgaris, and Michael Samuels, M.D.
About the book
Delos has been asleep for two thousand years. It is time for the island to wake up, to become alive as a power place, a sacred site, and an international healing pilgrimage destination again. Delos is being reborn now. People now tour the excavations, and this gem of consciousness and human culture is accessible to anyone who wants to visit.
Delos is the voice of this book, it speaks to you through its ancient symbols and monuments, and it makes you feel healing energy through its powerful sacred monuments.
What we know of Delos starts from its ancient mythology. In mythology, Delos is the island on which two important gods were born: Apollo, the god of the sun, and his twin sister Artemis (Diana for Rome), the goddess of the moon. This belief in gods and goddesses was the religion of the Mediterranean civilized world before Christian times. Delos, as the birthplace of the sacred twins, Apollo and his sister Artemis, was a very special and important place in Greek religion, a key place in the ancient western world for sacred pilgrimage.
Comments on the book
George Voulgaris has Delos in his DNA, he grew up playing in these ruins, and he has encyclopedic knowledge of this famous site. Dimitra Voulgaris is an impeccable scholar of Mycenaean, Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic Greece; her knowledge is expansive and deep, indispensable for understanding Delos and the ancient world.
