Placement

TLS 365 Experience #233
October 19, 2017

Placement of a labyrinthWhere we place a labyrinth is important to it’s intention for use. For those who make offering to others with their design of labyrinth, a purpose that flows in the design renders an ease of use and a caring of what is shared. It speaks volumes in where and how it is placed for use.

The place of space
for a Labyrinth use
leaves a lingering trace
with care infused
for everyone in all the days
with perspective views
to walk aways
and learn anew
at their own pace.

Two to One

TLS 365 Experience #232
October 18, 2017

The labyrinth’s message may be internal though externally is where it shows up. Like night and day the two sides are equally balanced as we move in and out in what appears to be a system of duality.  It is the wholeness of the experience that offers us a oneness in the completion of both parts.

Planting Seeds of Creativity

TLS 365 Experience #231
October 17 2017

Greek Key and Labyrinth The experience of sharing the seed patterns with a group of students had them doodling and designing all afternoon. In fact the next time I visited the class, new designs and ideas germinated from these seed patterns and many had been able to share where they had seen the pattern show up in design, advertising and in items found around the house.

What began as a simple idea to show the formation and foundation of the design, had blossomed into a greater understanding and application for life.

Journey of the Journey

TLS 365 Experience #230
October 16, 2017

Journey of winding roads to and from Labyrinth gatheringOn my way to one of the Annual Gatherings of the past,  the labyrinth was the experience of going and coming.

I stayed nearby and drove in each day, though the winding of roads and travel wound back and forth before reaching the place of our gathering. Each in our car had turns at the wheel and all commented on the labyrinthic journey from here to there and back again.

In gathering, we all took this journey on the way in, some of us just had a daily experience of it.

The Voice of the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #229
October 15, 2017

Expressions on the labyrinth, a voice for the labyrinth. LAT2012Having painted the outline of a classical design onto a canvas cloth for a walk, I had intended to add other features after the walk completed. There was much in release and discovery in this walk that was offered and participants in the walk asked if they could inscribe their thoughts on the labyrinth.

It seemed like a good idea and though not what had been planned or considered for this labyrinth, it felt right to allow. People wrote messages of hope and inspiration. There was encouragement and truth and a heart that showed up in many places. Peace was a natural expression and the messages of the journey began to be inserted around the labyrinth.

Where I had ideas of what would be added to this, walking and allowing the process to unfold is a bigger and better teacher. Since that time of inscription, others have naturally been drawn to share something on this without being directed. This labyrinth has a voice and expressive quality and it allows what first came out of the experience to continue.

Crunch Time

TLS 365 Experience #228
October 14, 2017

The marble Chartres Design with dried fall leaves LAT2011In the inward walk of the fall, crunch time occurs. As the leaves fall and form small curls that dry upon the labyrinth, the footsteps that travel the paths realize a comforting and familiar crunch that offers an interestingly satisfying sound. With each step and crunch it is akin to popping bubbles or the irresistible crinkling of used up plastic containers upon their completed service. We like to feel the finalization and hear the crispness in sound, even if in subtle ways.

As the walk of the labyrinth gives us a journey, the crunch inward can be the release of what has been used and as the walk outward crunches the natural flow of fall’s transition,  we might appreciate it as a declaration and affirm a new direction.

Change on the Path

TLS 365 Experience #227
October 13, 2017

In our classes on Prosperity and Abundance we thought to bring the community into an exchange idea, so for the month we invited our participants to walk the labyrinth everyday or as many days as they found possible. When they did they were to bring change in their pockets and based on ideas we were sharing, leave some change on the border of the labyrinth where the moment of realization occurred. Whatever they pulled from their pocket was to be left and the walk was to carry on.

As they circled around with the ideas, each time they gravitated to the new ideas being shared and could see the way they could incorporate it. At the moment of realization they were to notice if change was on the path or border where they stood, if so they could pick it up and take it with them, noticing what the total amount was to carry out their plan. Money was left out all month and there was always something on the path to resemble both the changes being made and the change they were concentrating on in a monetary sense.

By the end of the month this simple concept worked well in our ideas and goals and many realizations had become new thoughts and realities for many. We proved our point that change was always on our path and when we let go of what we didn’t require, others might be able to use it to inspire at different times and at different times, we might be those individuals either releasing or increasing.

A Path of Change

TLS 365 Experience #226
October 12, 2017

The leaves are changing and change is always a great topic for the labyrinth as it is something that is constant and flowing yet so hard to accept for what it brings. We offered an all campus walk and made it all about how each sees and comprehends change on the inward walk, how each invites it or resists it and the results in the center and what change each would like to make on the exit walk as a result of their experience.

We left a writing board up for people to write out their ideas and make their personal declarations for the calendar year at school. It opened up doors and avenues for our administrative boards to get behind the idea of what individuals were seeking and a place for us to engage our entire campus on one platform with individual directions. Throughout the year we will keep tabs on the progress, create events to support those ideas and keep it an open running dialogue in our classes.

Useful Centering Practice

TLS 365 Experience #225
October 11, 2017

Our Yoga group practices on the labyrinth in the mornings a few days a week. It is nice because we are using a space that is sacred and peaceful throughout. If we get to class early we can walk the labyrinth until the rest are there, though everyone has the opportunity to take that centering point that they have come to and walk the labyrinth afterwards.

It demonstrates that both Yoga and the labyrinth can be achieved anywhere and when we put two centering practices together, we just get more out of the experience. It is a plus for the studio to use the community and bring more into what Yoga is all about and at the same time bring attention to the labyrinth.

A Monthly Ministry of Service

TLS 365 Experience #224
October 10, 2017

My labyrinth partner and I have been giving monthly walks for many years, but my favorite thing is to create customized walks for groups.

Use of the labyrinth in ritual can bring people together for common goals and purposes, get them on the same page, resolve conflicts, enable change, open minds. Helping people plan their walk and how it might fit into a larger program can help them clarify what they really want to accomplish and put the focus on the larger purpose.

Helping to plan an event that incorporates the labyrinth is a form of ministry all its own. It has its own labyrinthine path, where we find that people come back to us again and again with changes and new ideas as they walk the path of our shared creation. It is the walk before the walk.

Nothing beats watching the joy and discovery on the faces of the people in the group as they walk out of the labyrinth at such an event, having found their inspiration and consensus, having had a profound experience and hearing about their experiences.
