Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different faiths for spiritual centering, contemplation, and prayer. Entering the serpentine path of a labyrinth, you walk slowly while quieting your mind and focusing on a spiritual question.
A labyrinth is not a maze. It has only one path to the center and back out, which is called unicursal (one line). It has no blind alleys or dead ends as mazes have. The path twists and turns back on itself many times before reaching the center. Once at the center, there is only one way back out.
In this way, the labyrinth symbolizes a journey to a predetermined destination (such as a pilgrimage to a holy site), or the journey through life from birth to spiritual awakening to death.

Making a Personal Labyrinth Prayer Cloth
September 28, 2019
During this one-day workshop, participants will create a small, walk-able, personal-sized labyrinth for use as a prayer cloth or mat. History of the labyrinth and many of its past and contemporary uses will be discussed. There will be time for reflection and sharing. Each participant will receive one 5’x5’ canvas hemmed cloth. Some design templates, materials and decorating supplies will be provided.
RELEASE, RELAX, RENEW
Everyday the news media assaults us with upsetting news about our world. We naturally feel concerned about the suffering of others...and we can't help but wonder how the current state of affairs will affect us, our loved ones and our environment.
We grow anxious as well about our personal concerns: relationships, work, finances, health.
Are you ready for a break from anxiety? Come join me for a meditative time away from fear and dreaded news scenarios. I'm looking forward to sharing with you what I've been learning over years of studying embodied meditation and labyrinth walking. Whether sitting, standing or walking, you will discover how to access the inner sanctuary within your own body. We can't always change the world around us, but we can change our experience of the world within us.
Practicing with the meditation "Attunement to Fundamental Consciousness" from Judith Blackstone's Realization Process, we experience the more subtle and grounding sensations of full body presence. Feeling relaxed and present as we walk the labyrinth, we are more receptive to taking in the awesome beauty of the natural world.
There will be additional time to meander our contemplative garden, further cultivating the stillness of mind in which your inner wisdom can spontaneously arise. We will come together at the end to appreciate what we have learned in the silence and for optional sharing, questions and observations.
This experience is free of charge.
