Walking the Labyrinth

March 4, 2010

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.

The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool. A labyrinth is symbolic of the journey to the center of yourself.  The Labyrinth is a meditation tool that can be walked. The labyrinth path has three stages – the inward journey, the centre and the outward journey. The theme of the inward journey is letting go of things that hinder our wholeness. The centre of the Labyrinth is a place of meditation and peace. The outward journey represents relationships – with others, the planet, the universe and us.

Equinox translated literally, means “equal night.” Because the sun is positioned above the equator, day and night are about equal in length all over the world during the equinoxes.  People have been marking and celebrating the Vernal (Spring) Equinox for thousands of years. The vernal equinox is celebrated as a time of renewal and growth. Some popular features of this tradition include a green cloth, candle, soil, seed, flowers, paper and a pen. A dance is performed in a clock-wise circle. Desires are written on the paper, and then burned.  The paper ashes are then mixed with the soil.
