Many Pagan groups share the dream of building some type of sacred space. A temple, a community center, a permanent altar. It remains a dream because they lack the information, skills, and experience to bring it into reality. Yet other groups have accomplished what can seem, at times, impossible. They learned how to raise funds, deal with city inspectors, and overcome challenges that have stymied the rest of us. We can learn from them and they are eager to share their successes and mistakes so that more Pagans can have their very own Sacred Space.
In Part 4 of Sacred Spaces we talk with the founder and a board member of a Pagan community center in St Paul and learn how they were able to get this project off the ground. They also offer advice on how your community can start a community center of your own.
In Part 5 of Sacred Spaces, we talk with Teisha and CJ about surviving Sacred Path Center’s first financial crisis and how they developed a financially sustainable model that other communities can emulate.
