What is sanctuary and why do we need it? What are the hurdles and obstacles to sanctuary? What does it mean to be sanctuary for others? What does it mean for our community to be a sanctuary (sanctuary as public space)?
Everyone has a sanctuary. If only in our mind. We are wired to need grounding and renewal and less hurry and less distraction. And yet, we make choices—with our time and with our days—that are detrimental to our emotional and spiritual well-being. We do self-improvement, self-growth and self-mastery. Because we live in a world that worships at the altar of the superlative: whatever is newer, faster and bigger.
In sanctuary, we let this life in. Every bit of it. In sanctuary we can be wholehearted; whether grief or gladness or sadness or joy. We make space to see and to be seen. We make space to welcome, to offer comfort and hope.
Come create your sanctuary on October 15 with Terry Hershey, the founder of Hershey & Associates, an organization that provides workshops and seminars on building balanced lives and healthy relationships. Terry is also a professional landscape designer who savors daily pauses in his personal garden on Vashon Island, Washington, where he lives with his wife and son.
Registration is $39, which includes a copy of Terry Hershey's book, Sanctuary. Register online
