A labyrinth has one well-defined path that leads us into the center and back out again. A labyrinth is NOT a maze. The labyrinth does not engage our thinking minds. It invites our intuitive, pattern-seeking, symbolic mind to come forth. It is walking/moving meditation. The labyrinth is a tool to guide healing, deepen self-knowledge and empower creativity. Walking the labyrinth urges action. It calms people in the throes of life transitions. It helps them see their lives in the context of a path, a pilgrimage.
