Church of the Holy SpiritThe labyrinth is an ancient symbol of human vision and emotional knowledge, a creative art form, and a practical tool for inspiration and fulfillment.
When used for meditative walks, it yields positive states of mind and body, resulting in hope and healing.
It mimics the human body in structure – the pathway spirals resembling the ear, brain, and digestive system. In nature, it reflects plant structures and floral designs.
Today, there is an astounding resurgence of interest in labyrinths, large and small. Many of those recently constructed are large enough to facilitate groups of people, while others are desktop and finger-sized.
Join other walks scheduled this fall.
