About the Retreat
Labyrinths have been used worldwide for over 4,000 years for many purposes. They represent pilgrimages, symbols of a journey both inward and outward. The single path labyrinth allows you to enter a space where you can feel safe and vulnerable. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is not a problem to be solved. There are no decisions to be made. You just experience a walking meditation knowing the path will take you safely to the center and when you are ready, it will lead you back out into the world.
In this workshop, we’ll talk about the history of the labyrinth and the uses. Then we’ll talk about how to incorporate such an ageless tool into your spiritual and creative lives. Make sure you bring a journal, some curiosity, a desire to grow and ponder and an openness to possibilities. There will be at least three labyrinth walks during our time on the lovely seven circuit labyrinth at the Scarritt-Bennett Center.
