World Labyrinth Day says
"The Labyrinth"

This single continuous path, known as labyrinth, brings together body, mind, and spirit through a walking meditation. Labyrinths have appeared throughout history in various cultures all over the world. They are considered sacred and symbolic in life’s journey. Unlike a maze, there is only one path so we can't get lost. As in meditation - our busy, chattering minds get a chance to quiet themselves . . . and our feet naturally follow the single path to the center and back out again.

Some tips to get the most out of your walk on saturday:

Relax, walk at your own pace. Let the labyrinth guide you--there is no wrong way to walk a labyrinth. Don't be afraid to pass others or be passed. You may be walking alone or sharing the experience--both are powerful in different ways. Walk with an open heart and mind, go within, and focus on your personal self-healing journey by balancing your body, mind, and spirit. Be open to experiencing "what is" and walk without judgement of yourself or others. What often happens on and around the labyrinth is that life is gently reflected back to you to guide you towards healing.

Before you begin, stand outside the entrance, take a few deep breaths. You may wish to focus on a question, challenge, or joy in your life.

The path into the labyrinth can be used to "release" and let go of everyday life stresses.

Walkers often "receive" an insight or inspiration by standing or sitting in the center for a period of time.

As you "return" along the same path to the entrance, focus on integrating any insights you may have received.

Thank you for walking with us!
