A Thin Place
Some 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.
