How to create a Sacred Place

Posted on 07/17/17

Connecting people with nature—mindfully—can impact health and wellbeing in profound ways. Science proves this again and again.

Here’s the great news for urban communities: you don’t need acres of green space. You don’t need elaborate plans. You just need the spark, the drive and vision and you’re well on your way.

We have a unique approach to share with you that’s transformed over 130 urban communities across the country over the past 25 years—and the research to back it. Enjoy this infographic which outlines our method in a few basic steps. Feel free to contact us for any support or information as you go!

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
