Connecting In

Your Sacred Space

The words ‘spirit’ or ‘sacred’ mean different things to different people.

There are many ways to sense the Divine. The Divine may be called God, or perhaps Life Force – and your experience of it may flow from meditation or yoga or communing with nature.

As you are here now, reading this page, you are likely among a growing number of people exploring the realm of the sacred in your life – an awakening of spirit.  Therefore, you sense that a profound connection to the Divine can come from time spent in stillness within your dedicated sacred space. Enhance your intuitive sensitivity and attunement to your surroundings.

As designers of sacred stone structures and practitioners of meditation and tai chi, John and Zach of Rising Star strike a compelling symmetry between the inspired and the creative – in balance with the rational and practical.

Your Sacred Space

What is the Nature of your Divine Connection?

Are you looking for a quiet respite from the world?

Where do find your greatest peace? Is there a discernable set of circumstances that allow the spaciousness of being to open within you?

Do you desire a dedicated space to gather with friends and do ceremony?

Does your work require a space that holds you in a specific vibration?

Perhaps you teach a meditation class and wish to keep the energy of your space in a high vibration. Perhaps you see clients and want to provide a protected and safe space for them to open to healing.

Are you a writer who seeks a quiet place that allows your words to flow easily?

Sometimes the energy of a space helps you connect directly into source. It is a place you visit for guidance, wisdom, and inspiration.

Other times the energy that is desired is gentle and restorative.

You seek a place of quiet in order to nourish, relax, and rejuvenate.

Seeds of Inspiration

A Bench, a Boulder, a Gateway

Sacred spaces can be simple as a stone bench under a favorite tree, a cluster of boulders that transport you to a special place in the mountains, or an arched gateway that welcomes you onto your property.

For some of us, the stone path leading to the garden is a transformative passage preparing us for communion with the plants and earth.

Passing over a beautiful stone stairway when leaving and returning home can rejuvenate and ground our energy.

A simple, sculpted boulder can instill a profound sense of stillness.

John Engelland

“When I am asked of my awakenings
and experiences of divine worth,
I tell of my love affair
with the bones of the earth.”

We offer ideas to help you visualize your own sacred space, temple – a place of quiet contemplation, ease, and rejuvenation.

As you dream, ask …

What kind of energy is most lacking in your life? What energy is desired?

This is the seed from which your space will flow.

Rising Star can build anything! A simple meditation spot or a large structure dedicated to sacred gatherings of any size. Tune more deeply into your vision and bring it into reality!

“What happens to us is irrelevant to the world’s geology
but what happens to the world’s geology is not irrelevant to us.
We must reconcile ourselves to the stones – not the stones to us.”
– Hugh MacDiarmid, On a Raised Beach, 1934
