A Peaceful Practice

Labyrinth in Highland IL

Highland, IL Labyrinth

Walking a labyrinth is a peaceful practice to notice what is all around you. Describing the practice makes it more peaceful.

Transformative Anticipations

A day later and waiting for the oven to warm, the labyrinth continues to be discovered where ever one looks…

When it comes to describing the labyrinth, today, it would fall into the category of anticipatory. One never knows what can arrive as the walk begins, though, like these tasty treats awaiting their transformation, we are likely to walk away with a change in our perception.

How do you describe the labyrinth?

Defining while Designing

This labyrinth design is a replica of the Chartres cathedral with an expansive diameter of 43.5 feet. Its alignment runs in a True East designation. By setting a morning alarm before sunrise on the Summer Solstice and observing the ray inside the shadow of the morning light, the validation of the directional point verified the True East accuracy.

Privately built for an individual with Parkinson’s, he hoped to use it for healing and medicinal purposes.

From a building perspective, to describe a labyrinth might consider the exceptional accuracy of its geometry and the affiliation people have with its pattern. It is also a hopeful tool for those who want to help themselves. Though, overall, it’s about understanding each step of the journey.

Two Years Day of 2020

Day 2 of 2020 a flour finger-walking experience is created.

The second day of the New Year pales in comparison to the first with all its fanfare. Its a more realistic and relaxed day to hopefully migrate into all the newness in simple steps. We didn’t make Christmas cookies this year, and with the arrival of my favorite and only son tomorrow, a quick batch of lovin from the oven seemed in order. Waiting for the temperature to rise, the extra flour and I had time to doodle. 

Describing the labyrinth is a focus for January in the Walk the Walk program this year, and it offers a thoughtful contemplation, as the labyrinth is often many things. Today this path of flour became a tool of efficiency. Made up of what was readily available, this finger-walking flour design offered ease of adaptation, the usefulness of time, and a little playful creativity. It also became a handy tool for developing patterns, as the moveability of the flour adds and subtracts the lines and structure quickly. 

On this Two-Year’s day, we get a description and a tip to understand this path of possibilities a little better.

A New Day, Year, and Decade Begins

Grace of the Desert, Nevada

Blessings for the best of the New Day, Year, and Decade!

We arrive at a new beginning today, fresh with wonder and hopefulness. Some are eager to leave the past year behind and some are unsure of what more this direction will bring.  A labyrinth is a tool for a movement that helps us to move past where we are stuck or have plateaued and into something we may not have realized before. It is also a great example of beginnings and endings. Where one begins is also an ending. As a walk completes it is always returned to our old beginning. The liminal space between the two is where the magic of the labyrinth creates a new reality.

As we are looking for your descriptions of the labyrinth this month as part of how we walk the walk all year, the idea of the beginnings and endings may add something to your new beginning this year.  Two years ago this labyrinth served to produce a year of extraordinary insight, walking it this morning didn’t offer the quick insight of the past, yet ideas have been trickling out throughout the day as a result of the mornings walk in pleasant ways.

May your year be in step with your walk. #walkthewalk

 

The New Year’s Direction is called “Walk the Walk” and its objective is to connect the wisdom of the Labyrinth Society with more who want to know how and why it can be beneficial or insightful to walk the walk.

Monthly themes will help us to embrace the wisdom of the labyrinth and offer a way to give a little and take something away. January’s theme offers us the chance to share how we describe the labyrinth to ourselves and others. It can be different for everyone.

To put your best foot forward and get in step with this new direction, read more and dive into the legacy that is the labyrinth.
