"Sacred is not a special place, or a ritual, or a particular group of people. It's more normal than that. There are many places and rituals that do feel sacred, and many of us seek these out...but I think it's important to notice that the ritual isn't sacred, it just opens that door to the experience. It isn't only the place that is sacred, we are." Margaret Wheatley
