Event description

Description

Half Day Retreat!
9:00 am to 1:00 pm

A labyrinth is not a maze, but a walking meditation device with a single winding path from the edge to the center. There are no dead ends in a labyrinth walk and the same path is used to return to the outside.

A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

For many walkers the labyrinth becomes a metaphor for the journey of life. The journey inward represents the introspection or self-knowledge, and the journey outward represents the call to service, or sharing one’s gifts with the world through acts of service and love. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to "That Which Is Within."

For our workshop, we will explore:

• The ways in which, like life, a labyrinth is full of twists and turns, whose navigation requires a change in perspective, awareness or direction
• How to design a home practice and incorporate the labyrinth into your life
• How stress affects our selves, our families and our community, and the gifts a walking meditation provides
• Historical uses and applications of labyrinth meditation

The path symbolizes also that each of us is on a single path through his or her life, and yet each person's journey is a separate and distinct qualitative experience.
