About the Sacred Secular Sanctuary
    Celebrating this Life, this World

Here at the Sacred Secular Sanctuary, we feel our spirituality in our emotional and aesthetic responses to Nature and the Universe, without the need to anthropomorphize them. Our ethics are humanistic and green, our metaphysics are scientific and naturalist. To these we add the rituals and practices, discussions and explorations, and the sense of community that help humans cope with lifes challenges and embrace lifes joys.

We hold gatherings, rituals, workshops and seminars in Southern Ontario, Canada. In addition, we reach out to like-minded individuals across virtual distance via modern technology.

The Sacred Secular Sanctuary is incorporated as a Non-Profit organization under the Corporations Act in the province of Ontario.

About our Home page layout

We have tried to incorporate enough visual clues in our header image to give visitors an instant, intuitive grasp of what we are about. ...learn more about the symbolism

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
                                               ~ Margaret Mead.
        Our triskele symbol

The triskele or triskelion symbol was used in Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age cultures in Europe. It is seen in the famous megalithic tomb of Newgrange, built around 3200 BCE, as well as early Greek and Sicilian uses. What the symbol meant to the pagans who built Newgrange and other monuments is unknown.

Even carved in stone it appears to be moving forward. We like the sense of Past, Present, Future that this imparts. And... it is a perfect result of the superimposition of the three S shapes of Sacred Secular Sanctuary.
