Come and celebrate the height of summer. We walk a replica of the medieval 12th Century labyrinth found in Chartres Cathedral, France. The Labyrinth is a non-dogmatic, generous symbol of invitation that people are often magnetically drawn to. The single, spiraling path of the labyrinth which leads to a central area is a metaphor for our life and spiritual journey. You walk the same path back out returning to the beginning. There are no tricks or dead ends unlike mazes. The walk will be accompanied with evocative live music played by Cathy Rowland.
Introductory talk on the Labyrinth at 7,30pm, walk will start at 7.45pm.
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. Walking the labyrinth allows dimensions of ourselves to come into our consciousness; a way to meet our true selves. No experience of labyrinths or meditation needed.
Tickets available on the door: £8 standard / £5 concessions.
Do stay on afterwards at 9.15pm for a drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) to celebrate mid summer.
