“A-Mazing” Grace: Healing & The LabyrinthOctober 26th, 2002
Saturday Special Event
About the Presentation
The Labyrinth is a tool for our times. It is a sacred geometric pattern that over hundreds of years has become an archetype of change, transformation, and wholeness. Walking the Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual act that opens one to their heart and nourishes the soul. It helps us to find our way through the bewildering multiplicity & to unity of source. It is an inviting space to discover oneself, the world and the Spirit. One person that walked the Labyrinth said, “I feel the Labyrinth has helped me open the window of who I am.” In our world today, it is so important to connect to our heart and our lives. John Welwood states it this way: “The Heart is the doorway leading into the core of our being & the living presence of spirit and soul. When our heart breaks open, breaks through to this deeper core, we waken from paralysis into a greater depth of soul, and along with that a deeper love for this world.”
The morning workshop will focus on the history, meaning, and experience of the Labyrinth. It will be an opportunity to learn more about the healing opportunities the Labyrinth offers as well as experiencing it first hand. It will be a multimedia presentation. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a journal.
