The Labyrinth: A journey to the center of the self
The Labyrinth is not a maze; it is a single path to the centre of the self. In this introductory session you are invited to gather around the sacred geometry of the Labyrinth to experience this centuries-old spiritual practice of walking it as a mode of guided meditation, gaining peace and engaging mystery for personal and spiritual renewal.
When walking the Labyrinth you get the impression of going on a long journey with lots of twists and turns, getting closer then farther away before finally reaching your destination.
A finger or lap labyrinth, is a labyrinth design, carved in wood, that you trace with your finger. It functions in much the same way as a full-size walking labyrinth; to further relaxation, meditation and prayer, except that the user traces the path to the center using their finger rather than their feet.
For many, this combination of movement (tracing the path) with introspection (eyes closed), is a more relaxing way to meditate or pray.
For those whose meditation or devotional practice seems demanding or sporadic, finger labyrinths provide a unique way to bring renewed vitality and meaning to these activities.
For those that are having difficulty learning to meditate they can provide a way to quieten the mind and start the process.
You can expect to experience relief from the stressors of daily life and solve problems using this relaxating, meditative technique.
