labyrinth is a series of carefully connected concentric lines-a
simple yet powerful symbol. The Cretan seven circuit labyrinth is
the oldest known on the planet. It is 4000 to 5000 years old.
are usually in the form of a circle with a meandering but purposeful
path, from the edge to the center and back out again. Each has only
one path, and once we make the choice to enter it, the path becomes
a metaphor for our journey through life. The labyrinth is a spiritual
tool meant to awaken us to the deep rhythm that unites us to ourselves
and to the Light that calls from within. In surrendering to the
winding path leading to the center where the truth lies, the labyrinth
expresses our need to find our own true path despite impediments
and obstacles to our place of healing and wholeness. The Labyrinth
is a sacred place and by walking a labyrinth we clear our minds
and gain spiritual perspective and an experience of the Divine.
The labyrinth is a path of prayer for all people seeking the Divine,
regardless of the tradition in which we stand.
