If an shrine celebrates a Power and allows for communion, and an altar provides a space for nuanced spiritual engagement, a temple brings all these elements together for an intensely transformative experience that speaks to a person’s entire spiritual self, including our emotions and aesthetic sense. A temple is a complex space filled with interlocking layers that draws the worshiper in, down, and up.
This is a collection of links and other resources that can help you explore temple building ideas. Delving into a refinement of worship technique and space design is work that can last a lifetime – but you should not be afraid to try on these ideas to whatever degree you’re comfortable with.
