The Mind of Design

TLS 365 Experience #31
March 31, 2017

One great interesting and often amusing part of designing labyrinths is the challenge of on the spot creations. Sometimes there is not enough material and other times not enough space and from all this lack often comes a surplus of abundance in looking around to discover what there is actually more than enough of.

The awareness the labyrinth offers is a sense of limitless opportunity just waiting to be asked. In the mind of design the labyrinth takes over and forms itself.

The key of awareness is to use the labyrinth to go inward to retrieve the treasures and trust the reflective return to inspire the gifts and details to use.

Joined with Spirit

TLS 365 Experience #30
March 30, 2017

Sometimes when I walk,
I feel like I am joined with the spirits of those who are dear to me, those who have passed on.

They return to my mind and heart, and I am gifted with memories I have forgotten.

Sometimes I find that as I walk, I clasp my hands behind my back as I walk, like my Armenian grandfather used to do, and I feel like going back through time, I am walking with him again.

Promoting Awareness

TLS 365 Experience #28
March 28, 2017
Become a part of the labyrinth community or begin awareness where there isn’t and you will never walk alone.

Memberships and service offered me great connections and activities to be a part of.
Here’s a few examples you can be part of too:

The Trinity Episcopal Cathedral of Portland

Oregon Labyrinth Guild

The Prison Labyrinth Team for a
women’s state prison in Oregon

The Labyrinth Network Northwest
circle committee in the Pacific Northwest

I find a developed awareness and appreciation both in myself and in others as a result of being part of a larger community. Now on the TLS Board of Directors it is another extension of network and fulfills a desire to continue to be of service using labyrinths with TLS’s organization.

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.
