Experience the Labyrinth
11 a.m. September 26
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world.
A labyrinth is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk it. It is a metaphor for life's journey. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to that which is within.
At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are. Now more than ever, we can benefit from the lessons that are opened to us in the walking of the labyrinth.
Join Spiritual Director Amy Lane on Saturday, September 26 at 11 a.m. for an introduction to the history, meaning and instructions for walking the labyrinth, including your own meditative experience of the labyrinth at St. John’s Episcopal Church. A period of discussion will follow. Bring your own sack lunch!
