Your Sacred Space

October 7, 2012

This weekend I attended a workshop by my brilliant acting coach and friend Gabrielle Scharnitzky called Acting from Your Sacred Space. It is based on ancient Native American wisdom that involves connecting with Nature and yourself. The centerpiece of the work is honoring that space within that we all have, yet all too often freely give away to others.

Tending to our sacred space is like tending to a garden. We need to cultivate it, give it enough room to grow and fend off predators that might wish to wreck it completely. It involves a listening we don’t often practice. How could we then? Most of us are brought up without the ears to do so. We do what we’re told, conform to the norm and stifle our creative inner child until it withers.

Your sacred space is where everything is allowed to be without judgement. It is where your inner beauty originates. Imagine a world in which everyone honored their sacred space.

That world begins with you.

    Glad I stumbled upon your blog. You have a great focus to your content. I’ve been trying to live slow ever since reading Carl Honoré’s book, “in praise of SLOW” which you are no doubt a big fan of.

    Indeed I am! I incite you to continue the Slow journey by reading The Power of Slow as well. Glad to have you here!
