A Walking Meditation







7-Circuit Classic Labyrinth



   11-Circuit Chartres-style Labyrinth


 The labyrinth is an exquisite walking meditation, and provides rich experiences of ‘knowing’, peace and transformation. There are many, many approaches to walking the labyrinth.  For example, one can use it as a way of finding answers to pressing problems, for deep inner reflection and healing or simply as a means of finding peace ~ regaining a sense of balance in the midst of today’s modern stressful living. Each Labyrinth walk is a fresh experience. Here, you can let your fingers do the walking. The best way to understand the power and beauty of the labyrinth* is to experience it, so jump right in! And, don’t forget to breathe…



* Many people from different traditions all over the world have created Labyrinths in both public and private spaces, and in the US, the Labyrinth was revived as a walking meditation tool by Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.  It is important to note here that a labyrinth is not a maze. The labyrinth is in fact unicursal, one way in and one way out, a powerful meditation tool designed to help you discover new wisdom and new wisdom solutions.


Among my many walks in the labyrinth, I often experienced it as a metaphor for my journey through life, and once, amazingly, while in the center of the labyrinth, I actually experienced a deep calm in the midst of mind-numbing, jangling traffic in downtown San Francisco.


Our online finger labyrinths offer most of the same benefits as walking the labyrinth, however nothing beats the whole body experience of actually walking its beautiful twists and turns. So for a labyrinth near you, go to the worldwide labyrinth locator at http://wwll.veriditas.labyrinthsociety.org.


And to learn more about the labyrinth, see the book ‘Walking a Sacred Path’ by Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress, visit her website at http://www.gracecathedral.org/labyrinth, or browse The Labyrinth Society’s website http://www.labyrinthsociety.org, which includes a section on how to make your own labyrinth.
