How to Create Sacred Space

You can customize your sacred space with books, wall hangings, or statuary to make it more personal.

That corner in the basement or the spare bedroom where your college student no longer lives may be a great place for your sacred space, but if it’s still got cobwebs and puppy posters all over it, it’s time for a change. Take everything off the walls that’s not yours, give it a thorough physical cleaning, and make it your own. Consider a fresh coat of paint, maybe a bit of new carpet if necessary, and bring your personal items in. A few shelves on the walls for knickknacks and books, perhaps a framed piece of art, and a seat for meditation are all things you can add into the space. If you’ve got room, think about placing a small table that you can use as an altar or workspace.
