Sacred places

Sacred places

Religion, spirituality, faith, hope are all expressions of deep passions and mystery.

Throughout history people have created and gathered in Sacred Places to express these beliefs and rituals. Our belief systems may all be different, but what is pervasive is our desire to connect and to find Sacred Places where we can express ourselves without judgment. Prayer, sacrifice, song, silence, pilgrimages, ceremonies and many other rituals have been practiced and protected in these Sacred Places. Throughout the world we see temples, mountains, valleys, churches, caves, rocks and many sites that are symbols of spirituality, unity and great historical significance.
