There are many books that explore actual, physical, sacred space and pilgrimage sites. This is a different kind of book. It introduces seven traditional 'sacred spaces' but then leads readers into a deeper reflection on what such 'sacred space' means in our own lives and experience. The various sacred spaces explored are: the Celtic Cross; the infinite knot; hilltops; wells and springs; causeways and bridges; thresholds and burial grounds; and boundaries. In each chapter, the author introduces a 'sacred space' as the main theme and then illustrates this by associating it with a particular stage of life and a particular sacramental experience. The ideas are then brought together by means of a scripture story.
Margaret Silf is a writer and a frequent leader of retreats and conferences. She has been trained by the Jesuits in accompanying people in prayer and is author of One Hundred Wisdom stories and One Hundred More Wisdom stories, as well as The Wisdom of St Ignatius of Loyola. She has been described by The Tablet as 'one of the most talented spiritual writers'.
