Spiritual Morecambe by Meri C Dickson
In 2020, I was writing my MA dissertation on the Spirituality of the Seaside. During the first lockdown I collected a sizeable amount of insights from people who related to the seaside, specifically at Morecambe, in a spiritual way.
These ranged from traditional religious paths, to alternative spiritualities, to health and wellbeing, to art and sport.
The overwhelming conclusion shows that being at the seaside and interacting with it provokes a spiritual connection. The pandemic rendered this connection even more poignant for many people.
