Day 187 July 6
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return
Established in 1966 formally and later named a Unesco World Heritage site, The Gobustan National Park is located just east of the Caspian Sea on the western edge of the Armenian desert.
The Park is known as a cultural rock landscape, historical reference site for ancient discoveries and home to almost half the world’s mud volcanoes, identifying near 300 separate sites within the park. It is home to ancient petroglyphs and prehistoric drawings and carvings and Intricate stone engravings and natural land formations.
The stone circle labyrinth is naturally at home among the natural elements and the 60,000 engravings that span 40,000 years to the last ice age. The age and construction of the labyrinth is unknown, though it is of cretan design and contains seven pathways. One can only imagine the stories each circuit has absorbed in the time of its existence.
On this 187th day…
Explore the paths you have taken before and the truths they hold consistently in your walks. Journey into those truths as you step into the labyrinth today.
Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit. Lets see if we can make a labyrinth pathway out of the month of travels based on the locations offered. We began in Portland, Oregon…. Click here to watch the progress grow this month!
Our exploration this month is to Walk in reflection of our direction. We traveled from America’s west coast to Australia, Asia and the Swedish Lapland’s and found our centered point in Austria by the month’s end. July will complete our world walk and return us to American shores. It’s been a wild and wooly time of exploration in the world to expand our cultural and connective perspective of the labyrinths and their purposes worldwide. This is indeed the global course in Labyrinthing with world wondering discovered in our wandering.
This month, we return from our center in Austria and traverse the world.
- Go Global….Explore the World
Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts. Note how these designs are outside the box of traditional design and how they might take us outside the design we’ve been living in. They can be quite diverse or small simple adjustments that make it different too. From Austria to Portland… the second half begins!
- Grow Local…. Bring the World to you
Let your walks, programs, designs, creations and simple enthusiasm be inspired by what the world offers us with fresh ways to create new experiences in the 30 days of this month. If it is doing something different each day, walking a new labyrinth, designing, researching or some new way to share, do it then share it with us! By becoming acquainted with the unique labyrinths of the world, we can be inspired as to why they are different, how they serve and what they offer on the same path we walk on in our home or local community area. What will you have created by the end of our month?
