Aesthetics of Sacred Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What makes an altar, shrine, or temple beautiful and satisfactory to the devotee and to the spirits or deities honored? What is beauty, and how are our standards of what is beautiful shaped by the values of our culture, religion, and spiritual practice? What are the principles that guide the creation of sacred places? In this facilitated discussion, we will explore a variety of sacred places and reflect upon the aesthetics of their culture of origin. We will also grapple with why we may judge them beautiful or not. Come to this session willing to feast your eyes, mind, and soul in images from around the world and to fully engage in thoughtful conversation about them.
