Sacred Sanctuaries

Taktshang Pelphug

Meditation has been practiced since antiquity in numerous religious traditions and beliefs. Since the 19th century, it has spread from its Indian origins to other cultures where it is commonly practiced in private and business life. Meditation is under psychological, neurological, and cardiovascular research to define its possible health effects.

Hanging suspended in the air as if they are reaching toward the stars, these monasteries serve to prove that a quest for silence, serenity, and inner peace can be so great as to drive men to build unimaginable things in the most unimaginable places. Monks, priests, and devotees of different cultures and faiths climbed the hardest paths in search of “better views,” and with prayers and meditation have heard truth in the purity of silence that only a mountain can provide.


Hanging Temple in Henshang Mountain at China Asia

In China, Buddhists, Confucianists, and Taoists found it by meditating in silence in the gravity-defying Hanging Temple, built 250 feet up on a cliff of Mount Hengshan 1,500 years ago. Statues of Siddhartha, Confucius, and Lao Tzu enshrined together in the San Jiao Hall, one of the 40 halls and cabinets inside the temple, prove that while “silence is a source of great strength, knowing others is wisdom” (Lao Tzu) and “virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors” (Confucius).

Are you feeling nostalgic for Harry Potter? Well this might help!


Based on the books by John Bellaire, The house with a clock in it's walls is looking spooky and enchanting with a magical Harry Potter vibe. Below is the first trailer, which you can see for yourself. It's looks like it's going to be a fun fantasy film.





In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett star in THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, from Amblin Entertainment. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.


Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS is directed by master frightener Eli Roth and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural). Co-starring Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, Lorenza Izzo and Sunny Suljic, it is produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), as well as Kripke.


Executive produced by William Sherak, Tracey Nyberg, Laeta Kalogridis and Mark McNair, THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS will be released by Universal Pictures. www.housewithaclock.com


Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy will be a TV series


One of fantasy's most beloved trilogies is finally getting the adaptation it deserves.


The BBC announced Tuesday that Philip Pullman's groundbreaking His Dark Materials series —Northern Lights/The Golden Compass (depending on whether you're in the UK or the U.S.), The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass — will be adapted for television by Jack Thorne, a multiple BAFTA nominee who got his start on Shameless and Skins.


The BBC first revealed that it would adapt Pullman's novels in November. The novels follow the adventures of 12-year-old Lyra Belacqua, who lives in a parallel universe version of Oxford where humans are constantly accompanied by animal "daemons," the literal embodiments of their souls.

The first book in the series was previously adapted into the 2007 film The Golden Compass, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.

For years any beast or bird that came near the portal reportedly dropped dead amid claims they were killed by the deadly breath of Hades, the Greek god of the underworld.
