As part of our preparations for Christmas we have an evening of silence, sound, movement and meditation. 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, spiralling 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.
In the last twenty 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. Use the opportunity of the Christian season of Advent to experience this ancient spiritual practice. No experience needed.
