Community Labyrinth Walk
Walking the Labyrinth at First Church – World Labyrinth Day – Saturday, May 5, 2018
Celebrate World Labyrinth Day by creating your own time of tranquility and healing!
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. Walking labyrinths are thought to enhance right brain activity, and uses include problem solving, conflict resolution, meditation and stress management. Weather permitting, the community (all ages) is invited to walk the grassy path of our front lawn labyrinth anytime. “Solvitur Ambulando. It is solved by walking.”
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.
