The Doorways are centered around the idea of Thin Places, a Celtic proverb that states ‘Heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in thin places that distance is even shorter.’ The proverb posits that the barrier between the physical world and the spiritual world wears thin and becomes porous. Allowing each of us, in any space, in any time, to be connected, as distinctions between you and not-you, real and unreal, world and otherworldly, fall away.
