Creating Sacred Space in a secular world
Our approach to creating sacred space is founded on the following principles and beliefs.
We all have spiritual needs whether or not we choose to express them within an established religious tradition. Such needs are hard to put into words but might show up as a yearning for a deeper sense of meaning in life, for a clearer sense of purpose or more connection in your work and relationships.
In our busy lives, it’s hard to find space to talk about the things that really matter. But without that space our lives can become empty and filled with meaningless routine. Having that kind of space might seem like an unimaginable luxury but actually it’s essential for our physical, emotional and mental well-being.
There are many paths to the Divine. Different religions all have their own perspective on Truth based on the message of their teachers and the culture from which they arose. Whether or not we choose a religious route, we all can have direct access to God/Truth/ Source of All. No membership is needed to relate to Spirit. As church attendance in many countries continues to decline, what we don’t need is another religion. Instead we take a universal and inclusive approach to spirituality that embraces the truth at the heart of all traditions.
Once-in-a-lifetime moments deserve to be honoured and recognised in a way that has meaning and heart. Birth, marriage and death are life changing events for us all. When families get together, it can sometimes feel as if you have little say in what’s going on and that real meaning can get lost in the pressure to conform. Even if you all have a ‘fun time’ or things go ‘better than expected’, there can still be a subtle sense of loss. You wonder what might have been if you had had the support to think things through more deeply.
There are many ways to express your love and gratitude. Choosing just the right words is a wonderful process and many of us enjoy finding our own or others words to help us say what matters most. But words are just one way to say what’s in your heart. An effective ceremony uses creative ways to help everyone feel part of what’s happening. We all express ourselves in our own unique way and it’s important to make space for that to happen.
Many of us feel a subtle (and often not so subtle) sense of dissatisfaction and inner restlessness. Before we can live our truth we first need to discover what that is and for many of us that’s not an easy matter. Self awareness is the vital key that unlocks the door to a more alive, productive and joyful life. Having an intelligent and sophisticated framework to uncover why we do what we do can help us wake up and be more present in our lives.
