Walking the Labyrinth

Labyrinths are walking meditation tool.

You can walk through the Labyrinth anyway you like:  fast, slow, happy, somber, playful or serious.

The labyrinth path has three stages – the journey inward, the centre and the outward journey.

  • Take a moment before entering the Labyrinth to become focused and centered, you can set a resolution or intention here if you like.
  • Enter the Labyrinth:  the journey inward.  As you begin to walk the Labyrinth, turn your thoughts inward.  Try to focus on releasing things that keep you from being whole.
  • When you reach the center of the Labyrinth:  this is a place of peace and meditation.  Spend a few moments here.  Check in with yourself; see how you are feeling.  Remind yourself of your resolution or intention here.
  • As you begin your outward journey:  Concentrate on your relationships.  Think about your relationship with yourself and how you interact with others.
  • As you exit the Labyrinth, restate your resolve or intention.  Take a moment to be thankful for the experience.

Many people like to reflect on their Labyrinth journey by journaling their feelings.
