In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways
Week Three: Appreciation
Using the letters of the word of appreciation and dividing them between cause and effect, offered and insightful experience of moving with and through the path of the labyrinth each day this week. Assigning two letters each day offered an element of appreciation to walk into as a beginning of the walk and a word of focus to bring reflection and ending with another aspect of appreciation. The week has offered many gifts and much in gratitude.
Where the abundance of appreciation can be found within its own framework, we might begin to see a way to apply lessons of the labyrinth as learning for ourselves in a way we can appreciate.
The seven paths of the Appreciation Labyrinth have had both inward and outward experiences and a summary path in the center to explore. Walk to review the appreciation.
Path One – Acceptance became a stride of focus to provide for the possibilities that followed. Walk on the ways in which you created appreciation for each.
Path Two – Praise in reflective walk gives rise to what we recognize, making us appreciative of the experiences. Walk with the appreciation that was applied this week.
Path Three – Esteemed awareness is an earnest appreciation of our greater abilities that make us cherish and be cherished more in appreciation. Walk reflectively.
Path Four – Improvement inspires applause. As we are continually changing, the direction of improving makes us more appreciative with cause for applause. Review your week of growing wonder and appreciation.
Path Five – Treasured existence, abilities and acknowledgement helps us to realize how invaluable we truly are. Walk with the appreciation that grew this week.
Path Six – Obliged and full of gratitude, our experiences become noteworthy and significantly appreciated. Walk with great appreciation for your week’s experiences.
Path Seven – Let the center path of this labyrinth be the summarizing experience of bringing the magnitude of your creation and development into an abundance of appreciation of what you grew and put effort in knowing.
** The design of this labyrinth was created using the seven days for seven paths navigating the inner walk and the outer walk each day in highlighted significance for daily infusions of the largeness of appreciation. The repeating reversing of the three outer paths, provide more time to increase value in knowing the first three elements with appreciative perspective. The design was from a peace labyrinth created years prior by theamusedmuse.com

Week Three Focus: Appreciation
In discovering the elements of gratitude, thanks is an expression we use to communicate our sense of what we hold gratitude for. Explore the ways Appreciation is felt this week on the labyrinth in daily walks, group facilitation, program creation, offerings, artwork, illustration and design, building canvas or permanent designs, books written or poetry created. However you find thanks as the path, on the path or of the path you are on… how is it expressed?
- Personal: consider the ways of your own personal adventures and use.
- Associations: contemplate the ways of use with friends, family, and relationships or other acquaintances.
- Environs: realize the community uses, organizations, landscapes encountered.
- Global: imagine the ways that what you do reaches others in the world environs.
