Until this topic came up with my email group, I had not realized that folks define their sacred space so individually. I first approached the thought as I was trained in the Grove of the Unicorns. Sacred space was the ritual space in Lady A's and Lord A's ritual room. Over time sacred space expanded for me to my ritual space. When Cameron and I made love the first time, I created sacred space -- right down to planning, casting a circle, and consummating our love in a space where we embodied the energies of the Lord and Lady.
Over the years I've come to see many spaces as sacred. One of my favorite artists that creates sacred spaces is Andrew Goldsworthy.
My wife describes sacred spaces as time and spaces created to be holy. The labyrinth at church, or attending church ritual. Or any time something sacred presents itself, like when her grasshopper came and fed on her lettuce.
When I entered pastoral therapy, we discussed sacred space in terms of therapy. Dr R challenged us to create sacred space in which the therapeutic alliance becomes a place of trust and of healing. Every time I welcome a client, where ever the office is, I create a sacred space in which they may bare their soul. It's a profound concept for me, and keeps my very mindful that each time they come in, I answer the calling of my Goddess.
