內容簡介 "I just need to get out of town for a bit and let nature work its magic" Most urban dwellers have said or felt something like over the years. Our loud, intense concrete jungles are magnetic as well as hectic, fascinating as well as frustrating. But at what point does a healthy rhythm of mixing the urban & the rural become an addiction to escape? In Sacred Pavement, you are invited on an urban adventure of re-ecountering and re-enchanting the urban landscape you call home. On this adventure there are no passengers, only crew: this is a do-it-yourself guide, best accompanied by good shoes, a journal and an umbrella. Pushing back against the narrative which yearns for nature as the sole source of spiritual nourishment and inspiration, Erin Clark provides practical, thoughtful meditations on contemporary urban life and its deep wells that can sustain the thirsty city-dwelling soul. Drawing from her experience as a priest, writer, and lover of curiosities of all kinds, she urges readers gently into practicing their spirituality exactly where they are, rather than falling into a cycle of depletion and retreat. What are you waiting for? The same magic at work in nature is to be found in the city, for those with the patience and boldness to seek it out.
