A Spiritual-not-religious Campus Sanctuary

A new kind of sacred space on campusDespite a drop in enthusiasm for organized religion among young people, many are still looking for avenues to spirituality that value dialogue, understanding, empathy and authenticity. The recently opened Snyder Sanctuary at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., is an architectural answer to facilitate this spiritual search, to help people of all backgrounds find common ground and to inspire them. Students can consider light, space, materials, geometry, and other qualities that have marked sacred places around the world for thousands of years–and whether such space as a general sanctuary is more akin to Jersualem or to Ephesus.
