Moon Walk

TLS 365 Experience #183
Aug. 30, 2017

The labyrinth under the full moonEach month the full moon gives opportunity to be in step with feminine graces on the labyrinth. On this day a walk with others for the spirt of daughters to remember and renew the lives as daughters and emergence to Mothers and Grandmothers. Each was once a daughter and in the light of the full moon a celebration is called in the steps and stages of moving as daughters beginning our walk in the age of the maiden. Continuing as we meet the center into the growth as woman in mothering and initiating the birth of many opportunities.  Returning our walk in the sageness of the crone as we walk out into the world in reflection of what has come and what will come in step with the tides of change with more appreciation for  the feminine mysteries and meanings.

Perspective on Perspective

TLS 365 Experience #182
Aug. 29, 2017

Years ago I realized that I think in the style of the labyrinths.

I aimlessly doodle when I am attempting to figure things out and in doing so a meander falls onto the path of my paper and it winds around going back and forth and hits a central point before moving out again. A meander generally weaves in and out, though when my mind is working on something, there is a point I return to again and again. On paper I realized that I moved away from the point where I begin and yet again time after time as if in an endless loop I return bringing something new to consider inward until I am satisfied or realize the value of the point I was after.

I never really noticed this until I walked the labyrinth. It was as if my doodle became life sized and larger enough to see it all from a different vantage point. It appears to use perspective to create more perspective.

Weighted Steps

TLS 365 Experience #181
Aug. 28, 2017

smooth stones for carrying on the labyrinthUsing the labyrinth to demonstrate the value of simplicity with clients and groups, it is a very effective and experiential way to both present and activate this idea simultaneously.

Confusion comes up when our focus is distracted from our purpose, and while this can be applied to a larger life message, my intent is for easy understanding. Walking the path brings us to the moments of where we are, what is in front of us and consideration for what is now behind.   Creating this walk in many ways for approaching similar and relative threads, this one has a tangible idea of giving each a container to put the things that come up on the path and stick with us, as we move forward.  Placing small stones along the path represent the elements we notice, pick up and carry.

In reaching our center point in the walk, the middle serves as a turning point to consider the use, practicality and basic logic of the things collected and the true weight of their significance or necessity as we walk out and into new experiences.

Affirming and Exercising

TLS 365 Experience #180
Aug. 27, 2017

Illinois Labyirnth

 

When life is smoothly sailing along, the walk on the labyrinth is an exercise of gratitude and a reminder of the affirmations and actions that support efforts that create appreciable moments.

When life isn’t, the labyrinth provides a sanctuary for discovery.

It is through the different directions that appreciation, curiosity or relief grows and the steps taken are the catalyst to provide it.

Synchronistic Symbols

Healing Hope walk for HaitTLS 365 Experience #179
Aug. 26, 2017

Haiti had a devastating land eruption years ago and where people wanted to do something to help, everyone did something to assist and help in the best way that they could. To send meaningful messages, prayers and healing hope, we created a labyrinth walk to help those who help in the crisis and those who didn’t know what else to do.

As I was using my tape machine to lay down a simple tape labyrinth, it kept breaking. I ended up completing it though it took much longer than planned and I had to piece together parts to help out. In the end there were broken ends everywhere. I added some dirt and elements of the Earth and soon what seemed like broken tape became a healing walk of Hope for a broken Haiti.

The process  reveals the purpose in the end and if we pay attention, we get to see the interesting synergy develop.

Many Labyrinths

TLS 365 Experience #178
Aug. 25, 2017

I don’t have to walk the labyrinth to get something out of it I have discovered.  Yes, the magical walk is often insightful for me, though when I didn’t always have a footpath available, the finger labyrinth provided a chance to see the difference.

Even drawing out the seed pattern offered up insight or designing a labyrinth with objects yielded something in the building process. I noticed in watching others that the experience was also alive and appreciated, and in all what I realize is, that just as there are many styles of labyrinths, there are many forms and many methods to understand and appreciate it too.

Questions and Answers

TLS 365 Experience #177
Aug. 24, 2017

It was a beautiful day and one of relative calm to walk the labyrinth as a group. We had a painted design outdoors and a canvas labyrinth we had intended to use indoors. With the warmth and call of nature, we opted to move outdoors with intention to walk the labyrinth noting and answering the questions that were affixed to the borders with Post It Notes along the path. As we independently found our answers, we wrote them out in brevity each on a separate post it note and stuck it to the path border where ever we happened to be in the moment of realization.

As our walk progressed, post it notes created our borders with questions and answers. When all had completed we took another walk and found how interestingly enough the answers to a previous question found themselves situated with a different question. It was  a wonderful way to appreciate the value of questions and answers and afterwards in our sharing circle, the conversation grew rich in the discussion about how are questions become our answers and how the answers created questions. In the midst of our communication, a gust of heavy wind stirred up from the otherwise calm day and this unexpected force blew the post it notes into the air and off the painted lines of the labyrinth.

It was as if our questions and answers had come to life, reinforcing our conversation to dance in the sky together as they uplifted with the wind into a recycled purpose. It furthered our appreciation for the walk, the sharing and the messages that came. We couldn’t have planned a better ending or perspective.

Coaching the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #176
Aug. 23, 2017

The labyrinth has many uses and while we may recount the blissful or meditative moments, the idea of grief and sorting through thoughts and feelings has been of enormous help to many. It takes us where we are at and can change our attitude or aptitude by the time the walk is complete with a whole new view point and perspective to consider.

As a coach, many I have worked with have used its metaphorical messages where others have used its affirming and reinforcing nature and whether finger or ground construction, the labyrinth offers a variety of ways to walk. In groups we begin to see how others walk and gain respect and acceptance for the pace and process of others. Patterns become easier to see and process becomes more practical and purposeful with the labyrinth in understanding life wisdom.

It is a tool of giving, grounding and gaining in many ways and a simple appreciation of helpful inner wisdom in others.

Labyrinth Meditation

TLS 365 Experience #175
Aug. 22, 2017

Chartres design labyrinth of raised bricks, Illinois

 

For those who find the stillness and the quiet of non movement a hardship in the quest of meditation, the labyrinth provides a place to understand the full nature of what meditation truly offers.

It is the place where we remove the distractions and become one in the moment of the moment. Where that can seem daunting to many, the labyrinth offers us the chance to still the busy task oriented nature of ourselves and let it fall away as we move into the walk. The secret of meditation is being all in to the moment we are in. When we release the world from our perspective and just walk, we are fully into that, just like if we danced and lost ourselves in the dance or sang and became the song.

When we move with the labyrinth and become the walk, the footstep, and the path we are the labyrinth and in meditation of it. It isn’t so much stillness that we seek, rather oneness with the experience we are in.
