Welcome to Facing North!

We are one of the largest collections of reviews of alternative spirituality oriented books, music, and other items of interest to our community. My wonderful team of reviewers and I have been writing reviews for many years now, and we love it.

Opened on October 31, 2006 with just over 200 reviews, Facing North is -- first and foremost -- a community resource. We ended that year with more than double our opening number of reviews (500+). Although we slowed our growth, 2007 ended with our database at more than 600 records, 2008 saw us at 900 and we edged over 1,000 by the end of 2009. In 2022, we have more than 3000 items reviewed in our files.

We accept previously published reviews, and articles and reviews from alternative practitioners. It is our goal to make Facing North the largest repository of alternative spirituality reviews on the Internet.

We are committed to creating a practical site with honest opinions that are fair, even when critical and welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve this site, one that everyone in our diverse community can use.

Once again: Welcome to Facing North!
