"The labyrinth is an archetype of transformation. Its transcendant nature knows no boundaries, crossing time and cultures with ease. The labyrinth serves as a bridge from the mundane to the divine. It serves us well."
Kimberly Lowelle Saward, Ph.D., TLS President
This is the one Ed walked in Valle Crucis, NC
This is the one I walked at the Heritage Museum Cape Cod. It was prettier than this picture shows and was among trees and quite peaceful and lovely.
Have you ever walked a Labyrinth? I have. There is a lovely one at the Heritage Museum on the Cape. It is an experience. Usually you walk it in silence and some people use it to pray; others to meditate. It stimulates the right side of the brain is an ancient tool to open one's heart to spirituality and feelings sometimes difficult to summon. I felt quite inspired after walking it and one day I will go back there, or find another one and walk that, too. Ed has walked one in Valle Crucis, NC. It was at a retreat he attended. We might go there together one day. There are still so many things to discover in this world.
To learn more about labyrinths, go to www.labyrinthsociety.org. The concept seems a little foreign at first, but I think you will find it interesting. This website is interesting and has a site locator to help you find one near you; (it has a virtual labyrinth and a free screensaver, too.)
I hope you find one to walk someday. It is worth the trip.
