Let's start by defining what "sacred" or "spiritual" means to you.

Golden Spiral

In our modern world, we as a culture recognize human existence to be both shadow and light, solar and lunar, yin and yang. We have given the highest distinction of a human experience as 'holy' or 'sacred', a name seen throughout traditional and ancient texts.  Can a part of the human experience evoke an attitude of reverence? Awe? Transcendence? 

Patrick O'Neill suggests, "My own concept of the sacred these days is less concerned with divine mysteries and Latin definitions than with a simple recognition of the relatedness of all life and our place within the web of existence. For me, the sacred is that which binds us to all other living things and to the Earth which is our home" (2007).

We agree.
