Q:In the recent interview with Yossi Klein Halevi there was mention of "thin places". Has Krista considered group trips to thin places around the world?
It’s funny you mention it because we are in the process of mapping out a business plan for On Being’s future. The idea of educational travel has surfaced at one time or another, but your notion of grounding it in “thin places” as a theme has marketing and editorial grit. And, the phrase is a natural extension of the content and ethos of our program.
We’ll definitely add this to the list of possibilities. Obviously, Jerusalem and John O’Donohue’s Ireland instantly come to mind. Perhaps Omid Safi’s Turkey too. Our question to you: Where are some of those thin places you might recommend for us to consider?
