What is a labyrinth?

Unlike a maze in which one can get lost, a labyrinth consists of one circuitous path that leads to the center.  Twists and turns provide a metaphor for life and its challenges.  Labyrinths often bring peace to a troubled heart.  For centuries, labyrinths have been used to quiet the mind, soothe the soul, and mend the heart.  Labyrinths not help provide meaningful ways to manage stress and make decisons, but they also help participants heal physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The labyrinth is a place where…

All of us can enjoy and celebrate life.

Those is sorrow can find solace and peace.

Those dealing with illness can find strength.

All of us can find illumination and insight.
