Research continues to clearly demonstrate how nature is essential to our health. The question now becomes: How can we integrate nature back into our daily lives in the name of better health, restored minds, and stronger communities?
Here at Nature Sacred, we’ve spent the last 25 years finding out. We’re excited to share with you our model for integrating small, meaningful green spaces into existing, built environments. These are spaces intentionally designed to foster mindful reflection, respite and renewal—we call them Sacred Places.
Our approach scales to meet unique needs and budgets; as every element is rooted in accessibility. Explore our product design—and let us know if you have any questions along the way.

Each Sacred Place is intended to reconnect people with nature—to restore our minds. Regain perspective. Find balance. Renew ourselves.
From smaller, urban pocket gardens to more expansive, institutional parks, each Sacred Place is tethered together by the following core principles. These are the underpinnings of each space—the ethos that make them impactful.
Physically open and accessible to visitors regardless of race, creed, background or beliefs—all are welcome.
Designed to bring respite, encourage mindful reflection, engender peace.
Located within the neighborhood it serves—closeby.
Built for and by the community it serves; reflective of place, story and culture.
"There needs to be more true outlets for secrets, desires and confessions. I am glad this place, this book, is one. It is a less indulgent form of therapy and tiny step towards releasing the thoughts, desires, which haunt you."
