“A nemeton was a sacred space of ancient Celtic religion. Nemeta appear to have been primarily situated in natural areas, and, as they often utilized trees, they are often interpreted as sacred groves. However, other evidence suggests that the word implied a wider variety of ritual spaces, such as shrines and temples. Evidence for nemeta consists chiefly of inscriptions and place-names, which occur all across the Celtic world. Toponyms related to the word nemeton occur as far west as Galicia, Spain, as far north as Scotland, and as far east as central Turkey.“

There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.
Whether speaking of the Home space, the Nature space, or the Otherworld space, discourse on the sacred is to be the driving focus in all of The Vital Recognition’s publications.
