The Vision

The Aim

To create a sacred healing garden.

A sanctuary, set in healing gardens and parkland, for individuals and humanity.
It has a special energy, that is created by the unique architecture, by the stained-glass art of the windows and by the integrity of the process of building it. This space brings deep calm and joy, by entering it.

The Principles

Seven Sided Sanctuary

Visioning Spaces, once built, will be guided by a forum of spiritual leaders and distinguished scholars, of all creeds and traditions. They will advise the directors of the independent Not-For-Profit charitable organisation that is set up to govern it.

Locally Managed:
The charter and directors will ensure that the ethos and aims of Visioning Spaces are followed in perpetuity, and also evolve to reflect a developing in society. The organisation will appoint and direct the executive management and staff.

Promoting Community:
Although the main focus of Visioning Spaces will be individual contemplation and healing, its role also includes promoting interfaith understanding, human rights, equality and social justice issues worldwide, to be a beacon to the world.

Interfaith Meeting Point:
Individual religious and spiritual groups already have places to meet – at Visioning Spaces they will be invited to have special meetings and ceremonies.

Open to Everyone:
Visioning Spaces will be open to everyone, all day, every day of the year, free of charge.

Healing Gardens:
The healing gardens will be a well managed public amenity. Volunteers of all ages, with professional help, will maintain and develop the gardens, to reflect all cultures.

Accessible, Sustainable Design:
The aim will be to create a comfortable environment inside and outside, for all seasons.

Commercial Events Space:
In the evening, Visioning Spaces will become a meeting place for over 300 people. Wedding Ceremonies and events celebrating humanity will take place; whatever is considered appropriate. Commercial hire will help raise funds for the ongoing project.

Tourist Attraction:
Many visitors will come from out of town and abroad, to experience its atmosphere and admire its beauty.

The Future

For this project to move from a vision to a reality there are many challenges to face.

We continue to search for a space that can fulfill this dream and as we do so we engage in conversations with communities and faith groups.

Funding will be sought from individuals and organisations when the moment is right and the faith everyone has in this project will carry it’s transition into reality.
