Walking the Labyrinth in Community

 “The labyrinth literally reintroduces the experience of walking a clearly defined path. This reminds us that there is a path, a process that brings us to unity, to the center of our beings. In the simple act of walking, the soul finds solace and peace.” –Lauren Artress

Whether you’re a seasoned labyrinth walker or this is your first experience, we invite you to join us. Like the power of experiencing silence or meditation in community, walking the labyrinth with others can be a deeply moving experience. Come, begin your weekend unraveling what no longer serves you as you walk into the labyrinth or ask “What is Mine to Do?” As you walk back out, be with the questions and listen for and sense any answers that arise.

Ann Fields has wide experience with this type of labyrinth, based upon one in the historic cathedral in Chartres, France. She’s led labyrinth walks for everyone from kindergartners to young-at-heart adults. She’ll briefly offer a talk about labyrinths and then invite you to walk it in compatible silence with others.
