As a chaplain in healthcare, we give a great deal of consideration to how we enter a room.
The way you enter says a great deal about who you are and how you will be received. It is the first sense you give of what you are about.
The same is true of a physical space: a house.
How an entry is situated, shapes the experience and says a great deal about the inhabitants ...or it could. It is not just the improved real estate value that an investment in "curb appeal" affects, it is the pleasure that the dwellers receive each and every time they enter their own home.
It welcomes them and can offer a sense of arrival and welcome.
This is a contemplative space, too.
What makes space sacred for you?
