Community Labyrinth Walk
May 7, 2016, 1pm-3pm
In celebration of World Labyrinth Day, the community (all ages) will be welcomed to walk the labyrinth on the front lawn, make labyrinth crafts, enjoy some lively music and delicious refreshments. Labyrinths have an ancient history and are found all over the world and in all cultures. Walking labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity, and uses include problem solving, conflict resolution, meditation and stress management. The community is welcome to experience the labyrinth on World Labyrinth Day. “Solvitur Ambulando. It is solved by walking.”
All are welcome, weather permitting, to walk the grassy path of our front lawn labyrinth. We also have canvas labyrinths which are used indoors at various times throughout the year.
For centuries, in various cultures, labyrinths have been spiritual tools used for reflection and prayer amid life’s journey. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one path which allows you to focus your mind and spirit in peaceful contemplation as you walk.
Our labyrinth is 36’ in diameter and based on the classic eleven circut labyrinth in Chartes Cathedral, France, a labyrinth which has been in use for over 800 years. Ours was designed by Peter Chow of Oak Park Architects and built by Francisco Gomes.
