MAHOHOMA, Takesure. Experiencing the Sacred. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2020, vol.46, n.1, pp.1-17. ISSN 2412-4265.

The primary concern of this research is to investigate sacred places utilised for moments of silence by Shona people when they seek mystical experience with their ancestors. Emphasis will be placed on the traditional wisdom of mysticism. It is no exaggeration that knowing and appreciating the beauty of nature (aesthetics) can draw one closer to God. Essentially, the aspect of silence is the involvement of God in people's daily lives. In this presentation, we seek to analyse mystical experiences among the Shona. The fundamental cultural changes in Shona society are forcing us to consider the position of sacred places and moments of communion with ancestors. These are the privileges of studying cultural dynamics.

Palabras clave : sacredness; Shona time; sacred places; spirituality; religion.
