The highlight in 2022 was receiving our new Labyrinth in time for our Solstice Service and Walk on December 21st with a very large crowd attending! We were able to acquire this new labyrinth thanks to a very generous gift from the estate of the Late Joanne Graham, a passionate labyrinth walker and facilitator.
Our labyrinth is inspired by the labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral, France which was installed in 1201, and provided an alternative form of pilgrimage when it was no longer safe to make the journey to Jerusalem.
A few snippets from our Beloved Charles Bidwell: “A labyrinth is not a maze built to confuse, but a single pathway winding to the center and returning out again on the same path. On the labyrinth walk, we engage the ancient spiritual practice of discovery. As we move to the center, healing, transformation, and the divine can be known. As we return from the center to the edge, we re-enter the world with new insight and commitment.”
“Following such a pattern is a dance that engages us on a cellular level, returning us to a felt sense of the body walking the path of life. It is a pattern to be experienced and encountered as we seek wholeness in an increasingly fragmented world.”
Covid certainly affected the number of walks that have been held over the past couple of years but going forward they will be held to celebrate the equinoxes and solstices as our earth wheel turns. We look forward to welcoming you to our Labyrinth and would encourage you to become part of the Labyrinth Group.
Donations are happily accepted and go towards facility care.
