A Thin Place

IMG_2691Some friends and I met a lady the other week in Folkestone sitting outside her beach hut and she told us about the Irish idea of a thin place. This means a place where the distance between you and the divine or the universe or life force or energy or God is very small.Nature can be a great thin place; so can places where you're with those you love, or when you're alone. Some places are even built to be thin, such as churches, temples or sacred sites. The whole island of Ibiza is a thin place. Burning Man turns the Nevada desert thin.

But you can access a thin place at anytime and for me, the best way is through yoga. Either physical movement, sitting still and especially breathing. The universe is in you and with you and through you.
