WALKING AS ONE ON THE WISDOM WAY
Join us and thousands of people from around the world who will be “walking as one at 1:00” on May 4, Worldwide Labyrinth Day.
For over 5,000 years, people from all backgrounds have gravitated to walking labyrinths. These ancient archetypes have more recently been rediscovered as paths of prayer and meditation. Perhaps the most famous can be found in the floor stones of the nave in the Charters Cathedral in France. Today there are labyrinths all over the world; many like the one at Shepherd’s Spring are outdoors in lovely settings and invite a practice of quiet reflection for visitors.
Unlike a maze where there are many dead-ends and sometimes numerous ways in and out, a labyrinth has a single winding pathway from the outside to the middle and back again. It is the slow repetitive steps that free our minds from their daily clutter and allow us greater spaciousness. Many labyrinth walkers dedicate their walk to a person, a situation or a question they are contemplating.
We will begin with a brief history of and an introduction to walking the labyrinth so don’t hesitate to join us if this is new to you. The walk will be facilitated by Leah Rampy, an experienced retreat leader.
Space is limited so those interested should register by April 30, 2019.
