“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” Joseph Campbell – For many people this was traditionally church. For me, this sacred space is Mt. Tam. Anywhere on the mountain, particularly facing West, where you leave urban life behind and see the vast Pacific Ocean crashing into Stinson beach. In many ways, I mark where I am in Marin by where the mountain is. I always note the angle, some detail about what it looks like or even where the sun is at in relation to the mountain as a way of connecting with myself, the earth and the present moment.
Where does the real work get done? In my head. This usually requires my yoga mat. Your sacred space is a place where you can go, clean out the cob webs in your head, connect with your body and find the joy that exists in your soul. It is up to you to figure out how often you want to do “the work.” I believe it should be every day. Whether it is 5 minutes of Meditation or an “Hour Of Power,” when you get messy you will see amazing results in your physical, emotional and personal life. Make today the best day ever, find yourself again.
