Overview


Drawing on the riches of the Celtic tradition, a look at seven traditional sacred spaces and their meaning in our own lives
 
There are many books that explore actual, physical, sacred space and pilgrimage sites. This is a different kind of book. It introduces seven traditional "sacred spaces" but then leads readers into a deeper reflection on what such "sacred space" means in our own lives and experience. The various sacred spaces explored are: the Celtic Cross; the infinite knot; hilltops; wells and springs; causeways and bridges; thresholds and burial grounds; and 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.

Editorial Reviews

Napra Review
. . . a fascinating guide for looking within and living an engaged life.
Living Church
One of the most interesting books on Celtic notions of intersections of the visible and invisible worlds.
Spirit and Life
In this beautifully illustrated book . . . Silf invites us to make a inner pilgrimage to these sacred spaces in our personal lives.
Anamchairde Newsletter
Silf has a wonderful gift for taking the common places—where most of us have been—beneath the surface to a deeper significance.
