  1. Obviously these stories are to be taken with a grain of salt, some more than others. With respect to Mt. Shasta, you really have to be there to appreciate its overwhelming presence. No wonder the Theosophists and New Agers have made it into a spiritual Mecca. For my part, I don’t doubt that places, like mountains, can be home to unique spiritual things, events, etc., and that mountains have always touched man’s religious impulse. Historically the Church has always consecrated such places whenever and wherever possible, building shrines, churches, monasteries and even great cities where false pagan deities were once worshiped. Perhaps one day northern California’s own “holy mountain” will be so blessed.
