Buddha said, "Wherever you live is your temple if you treat it like one." Nowadays people not only want their homes to be places of comfort, safety, and satisfaction but also sacred milieus. Victoria Moran offers plenty of ideas on how to create such a multi-dimensional home.

Our physical environment needs to please all our senses, Moran explains. Noting that our homes are enriched by celebrations taking place there, she presents material on house blessings, impromptu parties, and observances for the Sabbath. Our souls can be nourished by honoring silence in our homes as we heal mind, body, and spirit. Moran encourages simplifying our lives by clearing away all the clutter, and she even includes an edifying chapter on making housekeeping into a spiritual practice.
