Labyrinth Walks - Life Coaching

The following is quoted from the website

What is a labyrinth and where does it come from?

Labyrinths have been in existence for over 4,000 years. Over the years people, cultures and traditions have used the labyrinth in their search for meaning and guidance. Labyrinths are usually single (unicursal) pathways that lead to the center of the pattern and then back out by retracing the same path. Unlike mazes, one cannot become lost or trapped. A labyrinth provides a sacred space. It invites the walker to set aside the cares of the world and to enter into the realm of the Holy. It quiets the mind and opens the soul. It inspires change and renewal.

To walk the labyrinth is to make a pilgrimage, to discover something about ourselves and our life. The destination is not important, the journey is. The labyrinth is a path for prayer and meditation. It echoes the turns and twists of life. The best way to learn about it is to walk it – with an open heart and an open mind – and experience your own sacred response. There is no right way or wrong way to walk the path. Relax and enjoy the experience.
