Everyone is welcome, no matter your experience level as this is about using the labyrinth in different ways to create better understanding of the labyrinth and a great way to know ourselves more honestly. Discover what you are capable of with this wonderful path of possibilities.

The Month of Celebration, Appreciation and Realization
May’s Focus: Celebration

Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration.  Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.

Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:

  1. Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
  2. Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
  3. Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of  your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
  4. Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.

Unbirthday Celebrations

Day 122: May 2
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Unbirthday Celebration Cake of Labyrinth DesignYesterday was my daughter’s birthday and today is her  Unbirthday, as are the remaining 364 days, until we cycle again to celebrate the day that commemorates her entry into this world. Our discussion about celebration brought us to the celebration of those unbirthdays and the realization of the 86,400 seconds in each one of our days that we are able to appreciate our existence and shape it with the best we can offer our time, be it thumbs up, down or somewhere in between.

This month seeks to appreciate and allow the realization of that appreciation to give cause for celebration. So for those celebrating an unbirthday today, find the appreciations of the day, embrace the realizations and you may find more celebrations. It might just give us the opportunity to celebrate the simple joys of each day, rather than saving it all up for one day.

On this 122nd day…
Look outside the normal reasons for celebration and find today one simple joy that you can appreciate in your walk of the labyrinth and of the day.

The Yes of No

Day 102: April 12
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Yes over No labyrinth design by the Amused MuseToday was a day of hearing too many no’s, too many worries and too much of what won’t work as opposed to a more natural focus on what does.

To this individual who’s made a living on bringing to light what works, what’s right and what is natural over normal, hearing too much in the opposite direction can drive an urgent focus on creativity to restore the balance.  It became a YES day and surrounded by a world of No’s, a design came to mind that developed a labyrinth that might take a while to matriculate to allow the time to remember and redirect a focus to one that isn’t just positive, it can be a more effective and efficient way to do everything.

One can be reminded through the 40 labyrinths of NO before embarking upon the YES and the seven other NO‘s that are found among the YES that all the NO is essential often to find the value of the YES. Sales people are often told to achieve and appreciate the NO as it can be instrumental in defining the nature and behavior of the YES.  For those light hearted enough to play with the NO, turning each one into a YES can provide a wealth of understanding and insight to elevate our human condition.

 

On this 102nd day…
Amuse yourself with the No’s in your life or of this day. Walk with the easy one’s first and in your steps discover the value of each NO and how it leads to a YES.

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

Enough of a Walk

TLS 365 Experience #296
December 21, 2017

Our last Mom’s meet for the year was today and in a Mom’s world, on call is a status we learn to appreciate in a healthier and happier way. We walked the labyrinth in appreciation of what was enough at a time when the world is saturated with consumption and giving of material gifts. The idea was to focus on what they thought they did not have enough of and how they were without on the way in, and in the center there was a time to focus what they used well for transformation.

On the way out the walk would then focus on the thoughts and ideas that had surfaced on the way in, and how they might use their transformation to find where there was enough. The walk was transformative for many who found they were often so busy they never thought about what they were doing, they just did it. Many discovered the story they told them selves about not having enough, was quite a myth, as indeed they had plenty of resources and abilities that they had not stopped to think about.

We passed out finger labyrinth flyers as a  gift to everyone and look forward to what the next year of having, doing and being enough will bring.

A Natural Walk of Women

TLS 365 Experience #255
November 10, 2017

Using the labyrinth for women’s growth and appreciating the feminine, the metaphors and messages are always insightful and appropriate for our experiences. It seems to promote movement in women and allow a place that is stuck to become free in its spiraling fashion.  The body, voice, imagination, and heart all begin to move in rhythm to the paths and turns.

TLS 365 Experience #194
September 10, 2017

I beginOnce I step in… I Begin.
I begin to feel.
I begin to see.
I begin to experience.
I begin to explore.
I begin to remember.
I begin to understand.
I begin to know more.
I begin to appreciate.
I begin to realize.
I begin to smile.
I begin to be.
until I come to the end.
Then I complete… and begin again elsewhere.

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!

Build Peace

TLS 365 Experience #52
April 21, 2017

If you walk the labyrinth,
You have a story.
If you share the story,
you enrich others.
If you enrich others,
they appreciate.
If they appreciate,
We elevate the feeling of appreciation in the world.
