Turtle Herd gathers together to create, define, maintain, and preserve Sacred Space in our personal lives and communities.
Sacred Space is set aside for a dedicated purpose, to be treated with care and respect. Sacred Space brings the sweetness of life, a sense of belonging and timelessness that allows us to step outside our ordinary lives to find meaning, context and perspective.
Sacred Space can be physical or figurative. A home altar; time set aside to nurture a relationship; natural areas and public parks; art, music and performance venues; small local businesses; a journey circle; and any number of circumstances and places where people worship and reflect.
Turtle Herd creates Sacred Space for Guided Journeys and Sound Alchemy to open, balance and explore inner worlds and relationships with spirit. We gather for Potlucks, creating Sacred Space to nourish and nurture friendships. Workshops, Adventures and Service Projects bring awareness of the Sacred Spaces in our communities and what we might do to honor and preserve these Local Treasures.
Turtles are powerful symbols of Sacred Space. The ability to retreat inside a protective shell reminds us to search within for peace, comfort and spiritual fortitude. Their slow pace and longevity brings a sense of timelessness. Slow and steady on land yet quick and agile in water, they teach us to slow down and practice patience in our physical lives to experience emotional and spiritual fluidity. With a shell representing the heavens and a body representing earth and the underworld, Turtles bring a balanced and unified wisdom that bridges physical and spiritual realms.
We welcome all who long for the nourishing connection of Sacred Space in their own lives and communities. We invite seekers, artists, activists, weavers of narrative, curious types, lightworkers, psychonauts, bright lights, healers, sensitive visionaries, mystical hermits and you in the corner to join us as we Make Room for Sacred Space . . . . .
