Spiritual Development and Fulfilment
The VillageTown does not promote or hold affiliation with any religion (or lack thereof). However, under the principle of a good life, it provides space designed for the human expression of religion. Sacred architecture plays in both rites of passage (birth, coming of age, marriage, death) and the human need for the holy or the sacred, be it a building, cemetery or even a grove.
The VillageTown makes a clear distinction between religion and sacred architecture. When one walks though the door, one goes from the bustle and activity of the plaza to a place of quiet, peace and calm. It may be decorated with art; it may be uplifting or may feel like a grotto or cave. The architect will pay careful attention to light, shape and color. Sacred architecture by its very presence, completes a sense of community. When one walks into the plaza, it is there. When one walks in, it is a different experience of life.
