My Labyrinth

It has taken me almost a year to complete this project and I am most grateful to my husband Paul for helping me with it as I know I couldn't have done it on my own. I can't tell you why I felt this urge to have my own labyrinth. I hope to use it as a daily meditation for those days when I can't sit still long enough to go within. It will also be part of my classes as I believe in the power of the labyrinth.

When I visited Paris a number of years ago, I made a point of taking a day trip to Chatres to see the labyrinth there. I was disappointed as it was covered with chairs and there was not much information available about the labyrinth.

According to Lauren Artress, the author of The Sacred Path Companion: A Guide to Walking the Labyrinth to Heal and Transform: " A labyrinth nurtures the capacity to reflect ... To reflect upon your experiences is the only way you learn the art of being human ... Walking the labyrinth literally opens a new realm."

I'm looking forward to the new insights my labyrinth brings me.

How incredibly cool that you made yourself a labyrinth! I have one of those small ones that you run your finger through and find it calming and soothing. I walk labyrinths whenever possible and have found some in the most unexpected places.

This is just wonderful! What are the lines of the labyrinth made of? Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm happy to visit your Catherine, very inspiring!
