Sacred Spaces

Sacred Spaces

A recent Times article profiled New Yorkers who have set aside part of their homes to pray, meditate or give thanks.

Do you have such a space in your home? If so, describe it. Is it religious or secular in nature? How does it evoke calmness?

If you do not have such a space, would you like to make one? What would it like look? Does a “sacred space” need any ornamentation? How important is it to have a special place in order to pray or reflect, either in your home or outside of it?

Tell us in the comments, then read the related article to learn more about the sacred space of New Yorkers.
