Description

There are many books that explore actual, physical, sacred space and pilgrimage sites. This is a different book. It introduces seven traditional 'sacred spaces' but then leads readers into a deeper reflection on what such 'sacred space' means in their own lives and experience. The seven sacred spaces are: the Celtic Cross; the infinite knot; hilltops; wells; springs; causeways, bridges, thresholds, burial grounds; boundaries; In each chapter the author introduces a 'sacred space' as the main theme and then illustrates this by associating it with a particular stage of life and a particular sacramental experience. The ideas are then brought together by means of a scripture story. The text is also illustrated with full colour photographs.show more
