A "thin place" is defined by Mindie Burgoyne as, "That place where one's spirit is totally whole, at home, with no longing or yearning to be anywhere else. A place of resurrection is not only the place where one's spirit will resurrect from its lifeless body upon death, but also the place where that spirit is most alive inside the living body."
