Celebrate the beginning of Spring. Walk the Labyrinth, an ancient contemplative prayer and meditation practice. The Labyrinth is a single, spiraling 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.
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. In the last thirty 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.
We will walk an 11 circuit labyrinth, a replica of the 11th Century labyrinth inlaid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral, France. No prior experience of labyrinths or meditation needed. We are delighted to have Cathy Rowland join us and provide live vocal and musical for this evening’ s walk.
£6 (£4 concessions) payable on the door.
