Creating Virtual Sacred Space
With much of our lives taking place online, the Fetzer Institute is exploring ways to foster meaningful connection and deep inner work in virtual and hybrid spaces. Our inquiry is driven by an interest in the field of virtual spirituality—how do we and others create a sense of energy, connection, and spirit to do soul-level work amid our many screens and devices? While we continue to explore and nurture what is emerging, we offer this guide for facilitators and conveners of online gatherings.
Creating Virtual Sacred Space is based on our own convenings and conversations with experienced facilitators. It includes best practices for connecting with physical spaces, attending to before and after details, and how to invite engagement, among other tips that create meaningful connection in a group setting.
