Walking a labyrinth is a spiritual exercise to quiet, center, and allow contemplation and prayer. A labyrinth is not a maze. It has only one path to the center and back out, which is the meaning of the term unicursal (one line).
Today, there is no set ritual for walking a labyrinth, but there are books and lectures to assist you in performing a labyrinth walk. The basic advice is to enter the labyrinth slowly, calming and clearing your mind.
Reaching the center, pause to reflect, pray, listen for an answer or for deeper revelation. Now begin the return journey. Pray or reflect further. Upon exiting, use further reflection, prayer, or journaling to absorb the experience.
Walking a labyrinth in this way can be surprisingly calming and clarifying for your thoughts. Even if you don’t have a spiritual side, the slow, intentional walking in a quiet place on a set path allows for a level of focus that can be difficult to find in a busy life.
It has no blind alleys or dead ends as mazes have. The path twists and turns back on itself many times before reaching the center. Once at the center, there is only one way back out.

The labyrinth you see pictured is the one we have. It is heart-shaped and will be laid out in our studio.
It is best to arrive 5-10 minutes early for our events so we can start on time and not have the session interrupted.
