That space in which we honor and take time to see the divine within and around each other. I love the challenge of creating ritual for diverse communities, and especially the twists and turns of nontraditional spaces and places. For me, creation of sacred interspiritual space is an act of liberation. In sacred space, I use my passion for interfaith interactions, asking myself: how can I place our sacred traditions in dialogue through liturgy? What does it mean in our living outside of what we term our sacred spaces? To create ritual and liturgy in a new way, to feel spirit in a space thought of as completely secular, to draw sound and song out of the imagined unmusical place, brings me joy.
