Special Places

Day 24 of #100Daychallenge

  

Today, my friend took me to two of his Special Places. One was in the outer world, and the other in the world of imagination. 

The first place we visited was an island in Strangford Lough. It’s a liminal place, connected to the mainland by a causeway that is covered during high tide. We walked and talked. We found pieces of stone that had been shaped into tools by our ancient ancestors. 

My friend and I are in the same Druid order. Part of the teaching of that order involves a meditation to visit an inner sanctum in the shape of a sacred grove of trees. Each inner grove is unique to the student. Today, I asked my friend to describe his to me, so that I could see it in my own imagination. It was a very beautiful and intimate experience. 

If your friend invites you to visit their Special Place with them, you are very honoured.
