Experience Sacred Time and Connect with Your Deepest Life


Experience Sacred Time in your life…

When you experience Sacred Time you open the door to a transformative path.

Sacred Time is a powerful concept that has its roots in the early 20th century.  First described by the French sociologist Émile Durkheim, the core ideas about Sacred Time were then expanded upon by Mircea Eliade, a philosopher, teacher, and writer.

In his landmark book The Sacred and the Profane, Eliade describes the transformation that happens when people experience Sacred Time.

He describes Sacred Time as cyclical and as truly more “real” than Profane Time.  That doesn’t mean that Profane Time is “less” or “wrong” – simply that is is fundamentally different.  Here are some qualities of Profane Time:

  • It is linear.
  • It has a beginning and an ending.
  • It is orderly, practical, and familiar to everyone.
  • Many life tasks are accomplished in Profane Time.
  • History is rooted in Profane Time.
  • Time management systems aimed at increasing efficiency and productivity or completing tasks and attaining goals all operate in the realm of Profane Time.

But here’s the thing:  Living in Profane Time, no matter how efficient and effective you may be, cannot provide the depth and meaning that is accessible when you experience Sacred Time.

At its most meaningful and transformative, time management embraces all of the tried and true time management tools AND offers a path to an ever-deepening experience of each moment.

Experience Sacred Time:

Rather than depicting time as linear, Sacred Time sees it as a wheel.  Beginnings and endings are deeply and powerfully connected.  You can see this reflected in the cycle of each day, of the seasons, and in the movements of the planets or the moon.  Sacred Time has rhythm and depth; it’s an ever-evolving repetition that you might think of as similar to tilling and working the soil.  It’s a fertile circularity.

Our modern world is primarily geared to Profane Time, but imagine giving yourself the gift of just BEING in Sacred Time.  What calm and peacefulness would blossom if you allowed yourself to breathe deeply into a different way of being, each and every day?  Just breathe in and out for a moment, and picture the profound impact it would have. Imagine opening up to yourself and your own unexplored potential.

To experience Sacred Time, what is necessary is first to find time to lay aside the daily demands of profane, linear time.  This takes courage because those demands can be all-consuming.

Next, stepping into Sacred Time requires that you stop and return to yourself.  It is ironic, but returning to yourself can feel like stepping onto unfamiliar ground.  That is because Sacred Time is cyclic.  The old becomes new, and what was familiar offers up deeper mysteries and unimagined surprises at the next turn.

What will be your first step to start exploring Sacred Time for yourself?
