Sacred spaces, with Rupert Sheldrake

Rupert Sheldrake and I have published the latest in our conversations, this time examining sacred spaces.

Cathedrals are increasingly welcoming novel explorations of their tremendous interiors. They offer powerful experiences that come with feeling free in sacred spaces. The conversation looks at how to access the sense of presence they hold, from lying on the ground to sitting in silence, noting that how you approach a building or shrine affects the spiritual qualities revealed.

This is also about the rediscovery of invocation and ritual, gesture and stance, and how they yield difference dimensions of reality. It can happen without words, too, in subtle forms of search. The Coronavirus and lockdown only underlines the blessings received by visiting sacred places. We also ask how sacred places can be made at home.

The many previous discussions between myself and Rupert Sheldrake can be found on youtube, streamed, Spotify, iHeartRadio, as a playlist on SoundCloud, and on iTunes.
