I once heard a speaker say that a workshop on sacred space is difficult to lead because each person’s space is personal. There is no right or wrong area that gives you peace and a feeling of being in a sacred area.
What evokes a sacred space for us is not cookie cutter. For example, one of mine is the view in my shower. As I stand most mornings with the water running over me, I’m grateful for the experience of water that many do not enjoy. My view is a shelf of shells.
My favorite is one with a blue stone in it. That shell reminds me daily of the gift of baptism and the baptismal promises made for me as an infant. When I think of how I live out those promises every day, I envision water washing over me, cleansing and renewing.
