The Way We Walk

TLS 365 Experience #223
October 9, 2017

I met another Labyrinth Facilitator at a different conference. We progressed to mutually appreciable conversations and soon began to see an idea forming in a collaborative way we could each add something to create a complimentary program. It is currently in the works, though it was effortless and aligned in such a knowing way that it can’t help but have been a destined meeting of two minds of the labyrinth, this time not on the labyrinth.

There is a continual discovery in the ways the labyrinth can truly add to our lives and when we walk it enough, it becomes the way we walk in life.

Evaluating and Supporting

TLS 365 Experience #221
October 7, 2017

A friend and fellow Labyrinth Facilitator was working toward her Veriditas Facilitation requirements and asked me to evaluate one of her walks. It was a pleasure and a contribution to her education and mine as evaluator. She created a marvelous walk and full experience for individuals. As they asked many questions afterwards it was a great result of stirring curiosity and creating a desire to know and understand more.

I found in being present, assisting and evaluating, it was a contribution I received in supporting her work, just in watching how she touched others. We receive when we give and we give when we receive.

Story Walking

TLS 365 Experience #220
October 6, 2017

My mind opened a little more today in attending a walk of the labyrinth with a local woman who was part of the Labyrinth Ministry at a nearby church. Happy to see a ministry for the labyrinth, I just wanted to gather with others and walk what was on my mind.

She told a tale that was woven into our walk of days long ago in mystery and lore, though it fit perfectly with the idea of walking with its message in mind. Forgetting of the pressing need to figure out what had been on my mind, I enjoyed the idea of walking a story and later on in the day, that which had pressed was revealed.

Truly it was a part of the story then and now. Grateful for the experience, being open and learning something new from another.

Labyrinth of Joy

TLS 365 Experience #219
October 5, 2017

Labyrinth of Joy 2007LATYears ago, I found the small town of Joy.   On a trip that stopped at many labyrinths along the way, it was fascinating to learn the how and why of each creation, which became a later writings shared. The town of Joy was hard to resist in name, and only about 25 minutes away, so inquisitively I found myself on the Road to Joy.

Talking to a few in the community, they had never heard of what a labyrinth was and thought I was some kind of foreigner. Indeed I was and appreciated what they did have. With not enough time to gather interest, a growing thought and parting gift idea emerged. Perhaps one day, a trip back to invest a little more time, and maybe drop a little money in the Bank of Joy too:)

Finding Joy Park at the edge of town, with a great overhanging oak tree shading the farthest corner was the perfect spot. Being that it was fall, raking up a pile of leaves was easy and soon a small labyrinth formed under the tree. The birdseed pouch in the trunk was poured to form a line on top of the leaves and in the center. Drawing the word JOY into the center was the completion.  Now the birds could enjoy The Little Labyrinth of Joy, the leaves would fly away but a marker and imprint of it had been declared and the community was gifted silent wishes for joyful abundance.

How to Expand

TLS 365 Experience #218
October 4, 2017

With the sharing that the labyrinth naturally invites;  it is hard not to contribute something somewhere when we involve ourselves with the labyrinth.

  • It can be in the form of a simple education or information.
  • It can be in a new design of the labyrinth.
  • It can be in an expression or idea that comes from a walk.
  • It can be in facilitating an experience for others.
  • It can come from a presentation about labyrinths.
  • It can come in building a labyrinth.
  • It can come in walking and feeling more personally responsible.
  • It can come in a How To example shared.
  • It can be an epiphany that arrives in finger tracing the path.
  • It can come in walking with others.
  • It can come in lending expertise.
  • It can come when we support others who share.
  • It can come when exploring the ways to walk with others.
  • It be personal in giving to ourselves.
  • It can be in how and what we share with others enjoyably.
  • It can be found in professional learning or sharing.
  • It can be a purpose filled mission for ourselves and others.
  • It can fill us when we are given ideas, advice, and acknowledgement too.

Contribution, I find, is a gift of giving, sharing and receiving.
Contribution of the labyrinth is an awareness, education and applicable experience.

Circle Walking

TLS 365 Experience #217
October 3, 2017

Walking around in Circles brings clarity and focus. LAT2017The simple question for all in today’s class was asked
in what we learn from walking in circles
and the answers when all had walked the circles of the labyrinth, were profound.

Container of Renewal

TLS 365 Experience #216
October 2, 2017

The labyrinth is a container that is big enough to hold anything that is too big for me to handle. It is a place of sacred peace that embraces all the wild emotions that life pulls out of me and finesses them into acceptance and wisdom. I feel supported, I feel guided on the path, and illumined by the center. In the choosing to re-enter my life by walking the path out, I am renewed.

Contribution

TLS 365 Experience #215
October 1, 2017

Illinois Labyrinth focused on Contribution

October begins the last chapter of the TLS 365 Experience for 2017 and the topic is all about Contribution.  Walking on this theme this morning it seems like it would be no surprise to meet others on the walk who wanted to know a bit more. It was in meeting individuals who wanted to add a labyrinth for their community that the topic really made me smile.

Everyone of us contributes and without even knowing it most likely.  In your walk of this day, consider the value of what the labyrinth represents and how you are contributing with it. Maybe you have been contributed to by others?  It can be as simple as answering a question for someone, or as large as creating a community for understanding and using it. It can also be just showing up and supporting another’s efforts…

Share your story with us and acknowledge your efforts and those of others, together we make a wonderful contribution for awareness, understanding, and the application of the labyrinth.

Fitting In

TLS 365 Experience #214
September 30, 2017

In a hurry and having much to do, I wanted to fit in a walk in the morning. What I learned is that a walk is not fit in, it is not just another thing to do because it is on my list. All the hurry faded away and things just made sense with ample time to do all I wished. I realized after reaching the middle that I was reaching my limit and my inner wisdom spoke in remembering the labyrinth when all seemed to be over whelming.  This middle point in my being knew I was walking other peoples hurry and not necessarily my own and wisely brought up the idea of the labyrinth. The calm and gentle feeling after the walk gave me a good reminder, that walking other’s schedules made me not fit in to my own.
