Silent Labyrinth Walk – Good Friday April 19th – following the service.
You are invited to walk the Chartres style canvas labyrinth in our Gathering Room. In addition to walking the labyrinth, there will be an area set-up with tools to continue your quiet reflection.
For those who are new to labyrinths, here is a brief description. Labyrinths date back 4,000 years and are found in many traditions including Chartres Cathedral which was laid in the floor about 800 years ago. The labyrinth unlike a maze, has only one path, so there are no tricks and no dead ends to it. Come and explore a labyrinth as a tool for reflection and meditation. It can be seen as a metaphor for life. Walk it with an open mind and heart.All are welcome.
Walks are sometimes associated with 3 stages. Release, receive and return.
Release: as you begin your walk into the centre, this is a time to help quiet the mind. Walk at your own natural pace. You can pass people.
Receive: When you reach the centre, stay as long as you like. Try and be open to receiving whatever you are meant to.
Return/Reflection: When you are ready, begin walking back out the path that led you in. Think about what you want to take back out into the world.
