Walking the Labyrinth Path

Walking the Labyrinth Path

"Labyrinths are ancient patterns, thousands of years old, and found all over the world. Over the centuries, labyrinths have been used by many different societies in many different ways. The story of the evolution of labyrinths is both fascinating and mystical, and is best told by labyrinth historian, Jeff Saward of Essex, England, who has researched labyrinths for many years.

Labyrinth walking can provide a sense of calm that is conducive to meditation, self-exploration and prayer. Though the labyrinth is thousands of years old, these ancient patterns still speak to us today. I believe our culture is so steeped in rapid stimulation, information and technology that we are yearning for places for quiet introspection and release. Labyrinths provide that well of solace where we can go to drink deeply.  Our culture is so steeped in rapid stimulation, information, and technology that we are yearning for places for quiet introspection and release.  Labrinths provide that well of solace where we can go to drink deeply.
