How Do You Want to Live?

Where to we encounter the sacred?  It is a popular question and the one at the centre of the discussion between Mary Hynes and architect Anthony Lawlor.

How do we want to live?  The real questions rarely get asked and even more rarely get answered.  What does it mean to live well on this planet?  Is there a way to replace living with greed and fear with wisdom?

From the Tapestry website:  For thousands of years, much of humankind has believed that only special places are infused with the sacred and that you must get away from the everyday in order to find it. Not so, says Lawlor. He says everything is infused with the holy – from chairs to clothing to kitchen stoves.

In Lawlor’s view, the holy is not based so much on the physical environment, but on the experience and perceptions of it. Take a listen for a new and fascinating perspective on the meaning of sacred.”
