A Natural Playground

TLS 365 Experience #147
July 25, 2017

children on the labyrinthThe labyrinth is a playground.

So many take its design and purpose very intently, sacredly and seriously and while each has its purpose and place, what seems forgotten is how versatile the labyrinth can be. I like that it doesn’t have to be one way or one thing, it can be many things to many people.

I use it with young children in a care giving situation. There is a labyrinth in the park nearby and when we use the park for outdoor activities, the labyrinth often becomes a place to play. Sometimes there are dancing and movement activities, at other times we use its maze like quality to race, run and unwind. We play games on the labyrinth as it is a natural place for adventure. We play and pray together.

Through we also create much in collaboration, taking turns, inclusion, communication and creativity is explored so it also becomes a tool of learning. When we leave it up to kids, the labyrinth is a just a natural tool for discovery.

Love Meditation Walk

TLS 365 Experience #102
June 10, 2017

Heart Centered LabyrinthToday I walked with love.

I just felt the lack of it in my own heart and thought I would use the labyrinth to bring it back. I took a long breath in as I walked and thought about what I love and let the feelings surround me keeping my focus on the things that I really loved all the way around the first length of the pathway. When I made a turn I took in another breath and thought about the places I loved in the world, from my home to the areas I regularly frequented to the larger places in the world. On the next turn I thought about all the activities that I loved being engaged in and repeated the thought throughout the length of pathway.

I went on in this way considering the many ways that I love and appreciate and what a wonderful feeling came over. I eventually got around to the people I loved from friends, to family to those more immediate to those far away.

Just focusing on that one word brought me so much and in walking, I was able to get the feelings flowing and activating throughout so that the giving of attention created the receiving of it too.

Go out and love yourself a few laps today and feel great in the process!
