Creating Community

TLS 365 Experience #27
March 27, 2017

 

To me, the labyrinth is a container for infinite possibilities, inspiration, and comfort.

After giving labyrinth walks in the Rochester , NY area for nearly 20 years, my partners and I have created an ever-growing awareness of the labyrinth in community.

Our events support the community, not only through the peace people get through walking, but in the collaboration created

We support a local massage school
by allowing their students to give chair massages at our walks.

 We support local healers
by allowing them to do energy work at the walks and advertise their practices.

We support a local college
by encouraging them to send their students to our walks to learn about the labyrinth.

We support local churches
by creating labyrinth programs for them

Of Labyrinth Awareness

TLS 365 Experience #26
March 26, 2017

Of footprints and stones and what ever is plentiful,
a labyrinth can be created.

With purpose a design forms
and with perspective it develops
to unwind in the mind
and then
into the available material.

Where the walk can create the labyrinth,
the labyrinth can create the walk.

Be open,
curious
and play
with what comes.

This is my Awareness.

Evolving Service, Evolves Self

TLS 365 Experience #25
March 25, 2017
Appreciation for service and community is evolving at the moment.

I’m especially beginning to appreciate the need for me to make myself accessible to as many different people as possible who may want to walk the labyrinth, e.g. by being sensitive to the fact that English may not be the native tounge of all walkers, and so trying to find uncomplicated ways to introduce the labyrinth to non English speakers.

I’ve no doubt that the labyrinth plays a vital role in bringing balance to communities who embrace it – it fosters a positive energy that touches many lives.

Intention Realized

TLS 365 Experience #24
March 24, 2017

Good Samaritan Hospital LabyrinthTo me it is a wonderful opportunity to share this ancient, creative, open-ended, transformative, personal place for healing, etc. with others. Especially at the hospital I have spent 30 years working in Behavioral Health as a Holistic Occupational Therapist and Life Coach.

During my coach training I set an intention to bring a labyrinth to the hospital for patients and staff to utilize. It took a few years and some divinely guided synchronicities in the face of obstacles to come together.

Together with Spiritual & Mission Care at the hospital we now have a custom designed canvas labyrinth to enjoy!

A Meditative Moment

TLS 365 Experience #23
March 23, 2017

Georgia State Park PineCone Labyrinth 2016Hiking through the state park of Georgia, I meditated at the river’s edge and soon the sitting seemed to want to move. In the meditation of movement, 300 pinecones came together in a natural setting in a most natural and effortless way. The winds will return them to their resting places nestled under the other trees soon enough.

Awareness Effect

TLS 365 Experience # 22
March 22, 2017

Since stepping over the threshold nearly twenty years ago and entering the liminal space of the labyrinth, my awareness of interconnectedness in life as a vast warp and weft of vibrational energy, has grown and deepened.

It’s hard to put into words the profound difference labyrinths have made in my life. I created a life of service because of labyrinths. I feel consciously connected to thousands of other labyrinth lovers around the world when I walk, do ritual and ceremony, lay down a pattern, and watch others as they walk.

Next to my grandkids, finding the labyrinth has been the biggest blessing in my life.

My Go To Place

TLS 365 Experience #21
March 21, 2017

Good Samaritan Hospital Labyrinth

I have gained an awesome healing tool that has inspired me over the years  in many ways.

The labyrinth has become a go to place for me to release fears, practice patience and stay focused in the moment.

It has brought me closer to myself spiritually and I have met many new people near and far because of a love for the labyrinth.

Transitioning Vernal Awareness

TLS 365 Experience #20
March 20, 2017

Gill Park Labyrinth 2009 LAT

 

As the transitioning of the Vernal Equinox brings light to the North, it conversely balances with darkness to the South in hemispheric regions that divide our seasonal world. The walks of the labyrinth created for this time of change can develop our sense of seasonal integration, noticing our mindset and also that of our bodily reactions.

On the labyrinth we might take the inward walk and discover a gradual sense of seasonal awareness in our mindset by taking note of the things that we shift in relation to lighter/darker visualization and warmer/cooler climate. With each path, consider a simple change we make to adjust to the way we think differently. In the center we can realize the season more fully by noting the gradual shift in our thinking.

As we walk outward, we can ask our mind to relax as our body  begins to notice, accept and gradually appreciate the new season of light and temperament with a path by path migration. Arrive at your ending point as the new beginning that it is;  in seasonal migration with you as the orbiting Earth navigating the stationary source.

Walk in one season, walk out another.

Mathematical Seeds

TLS 365 Experience #19
March 19, 2017

A  labyrinth-related ‘inspiration’ came in the moment of recognition that the pattern of arrangement of the odd and the even numbers in Paracelsus’ (9 x 9) Magic Square of the Moon corresponds precisely to the seed pattern of the classical labyrinth.

Connecting that cognitive insight with the Pythagorean idea that odd numbers are male and the even female, the labyrinth represents, symbolically, the simultaneous functioning of the intelligible principles rest and motion, and, by implication, the principles same and different.

Further investigation by extension into three dimensions yielded the additional revelation that wrapping a series of these 9 x 9 magic squares around a cylinder constitutes a continuous helix when the numbers on the squares are traced in their ‘natural’ order one through eighty-one. From this one can infer the symbolic presence of life in the ‘seed;’ and from the seed the cosmos, also known as the labyrinth.

The Labyrinth in Oneness

TLS 365 Experience #18
March 18, 2017

“Walking home to country is a connection our people have always had with Mother Earth. Our culture is defined by the closeness of family circles and staying connected to the people within it. The labyrinth invites and welcomes people to walk the path together – it calls them to the land in oneness.”                Aunty Ali Golding, Wisdom Keeper
