Sharing Sacred Spaces is a community-building organization that brings people together across difference through the medium of architecture or space. Communities inhabit and find meaning in space. And it is the space—entering the space—where we begin to be able to really hear one another's stories, beliefs, and values. It is through sharing "sacred" spaces where we develop compassion and a new, broadened, view. It is where we begin to understand the spectrum of being human in all its fullness.
