Yesteryear’s Timeline Traveled Today

Day 9

January 9, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Today’s Walk:
    In what ways does reflection contribute to the whole experience of your walk?
  2. For Today’s Experience: 
    Become aware of the many ways that recalling and remembering serve and the places it services.
  3. Share Today:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

image of Chartres Calendar from 2008 in 2019 by LTA happy throw back to the year 2008 presenced itself while in the process of clearing and organizing. Making room for all that is to fit into this year, a calendar purchased with that same intent for the year ahead when visiting the Chartres cathedral in 2007.

The calendar from 2008 is aligned in dates with our calendar year of 2019. Eleven years ago many shifts occurred along many paths and circuits of directions. Memories of those intentions and outcome are in step with the growth that has become a natural part of today’s path. The steps of today are measured by that growth and interestingly enough, the dimensions of the space are listed on the physical plane on this calendar. It is in the cognitive, emotional and spiritual dimensions measured differently that most growth occurs.

In today’s walk it is reflected, remembered and appreciated for the contribution it has provided perhaps measured by the gratitude that has risen.

With a focus on sharing this month and the ways we set up our plans to the actual way we place our first step, beginnings can offer us a way to realize our outcomes.

  1.  Explore what beginning is like for you, personally or professionally in all you do.
  2.  Observe yourself in this first quarter of the year as a contribution.
  3.  Walk, design, teach, build, express yourself in sharing an experience this month.

A Path to Allow

Day 314  November 10
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Two: Grateful

Allowance is an essential tool relative to gratefulness and the labyrinth. When we walk the path, it offers us more when we allow time, relevance and connection. When we allow gratitude, we expand our possibilities and feel larger as a result. Where we are not sure, follow another’s path or become indecisive, we stop the flow of allowing ourselves to receive the great abundance that gratitude is. Be conscious to allowing the great and full to accompany you on a walk, a path or a direction for greater reception.

The Letter A with Labyrinth Inscription
A is for Abundance

To realize is to recognize from a cognitive perspective as well as a body minded acknowledgement. It is to wholly come into what we make effort to create. Gratitude is that largeness of realization with cherished acknowledgement.  To design, create, build or develop a contribution of labyrinth awareness, education, application or contribution is to realize.


Daily Insights : On this 314th day…
Focus on flow in your walk, a stream and the allowance of abundance to walk with you on this day.

November’s Focus

Banner Image of Grateful Pathways for November 365 Experiences

Week Two Focus: GRATEFUL

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 Thanks is communicated 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.

Share and become part of history and her story…

Consider the topic with the ways you currently use the labyrinth for self or sharing with others:

• Personal Walk
• Group Walk, Program, Workshop, Education, etc.
• Designs, Artwork, illustrations, photos of labyrinth you walked, etc.
• Building concepts, tips, techniques, design ideas, etc.
• Personal Development, Guidance, Growth orientation, etc
• Writing, poetry, creations, installations, etc.
• Learn something new about yourself, others or the labyrinth this month.

Horsing around with Innovation

Day 129: May 9
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Labyrinth as an Equestrian learning pathRemembering the Equestrian Riding Club that came to demonstrate the agility of the horse on the labyrinth. It was quite a demonstration of grace that allowed both horse and rider to come to a moment of truth in the elegant ease of which both navigated the turns in flow with the labyrinth’s path. There is much wonderful work done with the horse and the labyrinth and much to celebrate in the accomplishments of creativity and innovation that continually find new uses for this ancient path.

In my travels I have met individuals who rehabilitate horses using the path of the labyrinth and one might think they are wide paths, however the path is purposefully narrow and the size of a regular labyrinth. This  really shows the honest ability guided to its fuller potential. There are others that rehabilitate people with improved health, elevated emotional fortitude, reconnecting physical ability and restoring cognitive function on horseback. When they take the horse to the labyrinth, what has been reported is that both rider and horse experience beneficial improvements.

On this 129th day…
Celebrate your own navigation of the path and step into awareness of the improvements made in your physical body, attitude, aptitude and overall connected realizations.

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.

Walk a Smile in Your Mile

Day 94: April 4
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Walk a Smile


This was a labyrinth created for a conference in 2008, ten years ago this month.  It made everyone feel happier. We shared a discourse on happiness, joy and positive experiences and what made them so.

With a few exercises and activities to help individuals tap into the differences between knowing what each was cognitively and experiencing them with sensory and emotion, the overall walk allowed for moments of reality expression that was healthy for each participant and definitely happier for everyone.

Each left with a smile on their face and in our workshop helping to accomplish our goal and elevate the mood of the whole conference.



On this 94th day…
Breathe in and exhale into a smile as you walk each length of path today, as you turn, repeat until you reach the center. Reflect and repeat as you return.



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!

Move and Be Moved

TLS 365 Experience #136
July 14, 2017

Stone LabyrinthThe secret of the labyrinth’s ability is in how we each apply it.

Whether walking, watching, finger walking, drawing or creating a design, the common application is movement. We move with it and it moves us.

Our physicality is shifted, our cognitive construct considers and reconsiders, the way we relate to it, ourselves and others stretches our emotional response and how we connect and our moved internally affects our spiritual inner knowing.

A labyrinth is merely geometry until it’s geography is explored with movement.
