The Labyrinth will be available to walk anytime between 6am and 8am at St Patricks Church, 1 Cambridge Road on Friday 13 May. Come for as long as you wish between these hours. We walk a canvas Labyrinth that is modeled on the 12th century labyrinth found in Chartres Cathedral, France. In recent years, walking the labyrinth has re-emerged as a meditative practice and a symbolic image of pilgrimage, not in the geographical sense, but of the journey we each make through life: a journey to the centre, a return to the heart, back to the Spirit who faithfully waits for us.
The labyrinth is an archetypal image which emerged in different cultures over 4000 years ago; it is a mirror or metaphor for the spiritual journey and the evolutionary spiral of life. The labyrinth is a single, spiralling path that leads to a central area. You walk the same path back out returning to the beginning. There are no tricks or dead ends unlike mazes.
No prior experience of meditation or labyrinths needed.
