The travel altar – it works!

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

I travel a lot which takes me away from home, where each day I enjoy a morning routine of prayer and meditation in front of my altar.  So I made this portable altar by painting a wood cigar box and filling it with items (carried in small fabric bags) to create sacred space wherever I go.  The travel altar helps me set the tone for my day by serving as a powerful organizing force and a reminder for me to take the time necessary for prayer, meditation, qigong, or simply sitting quietly in peace.  The travel altar – it works!
