SEGMENT 3 – Dingle’s spiritual vibe
Dingle has an energy that naturally connects with human spirituality. Being in Dingle lends itself to mediation, to reflection and raising one’s spiritual vibration. Dingle is a thin place.
People have written entire books about Dingle and many of them feature the draw inward, personal transformation.
Chet Raymo, who was a professor of Physics and Astronomy at Stonehill College in Massachusettes is also a brilliant writer and poet. He had a summer home in Dingle and wrote the book Climbing Brandon about Mount Brandon. He also wrote Honey for Stone, A Naturalist’s Search for God about his experiences in Dingle.
Chet admits that he’s an agnostic and states that his academic training, has led to his rejection of the religious principles he was taught as a child. He’s basically agnostic. But he writes the Dingle landscape tends to stir his own spirituality.
Mark Patrick Hederman, OSB quote:
“On the summit of Mount Sinai, on the road to Santiago, God does not stand any closer or speak any louder. But we listen better.”
