What is a labyrinth? A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It is a meandering but purposeful path that combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral, leading to the centre and back. It is different from a maze which has dead ends and false passages. The labyrinth is one path, representing a journey to our own centre and back out again into the world.
Why walk the labyrinth? You may simply be curious. You may walk the labyrinth to help bring quiet and peace to your mind. You may be facing a decision and walking the labyrinth may help bring clarity. You may use it as a tool to connect to your deeper self. You may use it as a way to enter into a dialogue with God. Each experience is unique.
