I've made it my job to find the sacred in the ordinary. In this podcast Mary Hynes, the host of the CBC Radio program Tapestry, and I talk about how the divine is not limited to churches, mosques, synagogues and temples. We discuss how you can find it everywhere, if you just look - even in the lineup at the grocery store!
For thousands of years, much of humankind has believed that only special places are infused with the sacred and that you must get away from the everyday in order to find it. Not so, everything is infused with the holy - from chairs to clothing to kitchen stoves.
In my view, the holy is not based so much on the physical environment, but on the experience and perceptions of it. Take a listen for a new and fascinating perspective on the meaning of sacred in this program entitled How Do You Want to Live? Click Here to Listen to the Podcast
