Entering Sacred Space

Entering sacred space was the theme of the first session of the Joseph Campbell and the Story of Your Life workshop. Sacred space is the place Joseph Campbell referred to as your “bliss place”; where you can find yourself: again, and again, and again.

At one time or another, we all knew about “sacred space.” To regain access to it, Professor Campbell suggests that you ask yourself: “What was the game you enjoyed when you were a child? What did you do as a child that made you forget time?” Therein, he counsels you’ll find a familiar gateway back to your “sacred space.”

I knew “sacred space” in my early childhood, lost track of it through adolescence, and unexpectedly found it again in a place called the Aikido dojo. The marvel and wonder of sacred space is that the more times you go there, the more ways you find for getting back.

There are many ways to enter into sacred space. One of these is the dance of Tai Chi Chuan which teaches how to be in sacred space, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing: at work, at school, at home, and on your way.

Sacred Space for Modern People
Hundreds of years ago, a Zen master offered an insight into the nature of “enlightenment” when he said: “Before enlightenment, I chopped wood and carried water. After enlightenment, I chopped wood and carried water.” This perennial wisdom still applies today: “Before rediscovering sacred space, I went to work and took care of business; after rediscovering sacred space, I still go to work and take care of business.”

On The Way
At BIOM—A Conscious Place for Health & Well-Being—you can experience and learn some tried and true methods for experiencing “sacred space.” 

  • You can learn the ‘way’ of Tai Chi and the meditative martial arts to reestablish your sacred space, and shape it in ways that include those you want to invite in, and redirect in other directions, those you don’t. Most importantly, Tai Chi teaches you how to enjoy your Self as you dance through the rest of your life.
  • You can learn Chi Kung to reopen pathways in your body and mind leading directly to the sacred space within you that’s full of calm, health, and strength.
  • You can flow into the sacred space of health using acupuncture/acupressure and Chinese medical herbs to strengthen your immune system and balance the energy in your internal organs.
