SAN DIEGO – June 20, 2014 – The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority celebrated the opening of The Spirit of Silence, or Reflection Room, today with an invocation ceremony and brief remarks. The Spirit of Silence is a serene place for travelers to contemplate, meditate or pray. Located post-security in Terminal 2, the non-denominational space is sensitive to the diversity of travelers and offers a calm respite before or after flights.
Created by Seattle-based artist Norie Sato, The Spirit of Silence takes inspiration from the undefinable and changing edge between water and sky, clear and opaque, organic and built. Evocative of the San Diego environment, the room encourages visitors to sit with their thoughts, shielded from the busy airport experience outside.
The room is San Diego International Airport’s first meditation room.
