Heart Designs

Day 53: February 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love


It is a blessing and a joy to bring the heart into focus in this walk of possibility we are creating daily in the 365 Experience. Leading with the heart this month has opened up numerous activities, valuable insights and appreciable gratitude in what can be accomplished in the name of simple honesty. When its not complicated, its value is immense and helps us to realize that potential is an essence of opportunity we can tap into and expand in any moment.

Today with a group of women, the conversation heart took on a new dimension of heart in the pathways of our connection and collaboration. Spreading out the Conversation Hearts, each designed and developed their own independent conversation of what their heart spoke in all honesty. The conversations that came in discussion were wonderfully rich and revealing.  Of the three I created, this is the one that I enjoyed the most.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 53rd day…
Take steps into your heart, stop often, listen intently and continue as your heart speaks.

February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.

Time for Change

Day 52: February 21
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

In our search for ability and capacity in the journey of honesty comes a moment when we have to face the things we do not like or feel we have little control in the outcome. For the world our latest tragedy in Florida is such a moment of utter heartbreak and loss that echoes an ache for a community, a country and beyond. Our prayers and considerations are kind gestures, though they do little to truly ease the errant emotions that rise in suffering, anger and injustice. We seek to make our lives better in revealing what lays in our truth and if ever such a moment arose to call us to rise in action, it is this and from the very first call that was made many years ago, the call only increases and intensifies.

Walking on the change that is called for is an honest moment of realization that everyone can find an action that becomes a contribution to a solution. Education and collaboration take away the stigma of ignorance and isolation and rather than react, proactivity is the necessary path so that we aren’t projecting our own fears into a pot that is overly full; it is no help to rant and rave as that is more of the problem. Walking on solutions today, this link will lead you from a place of not knowing to offer a perspective with studied insight. The honesty in this day, looks within to realize what thing we can do.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 52nd day…
Walk knowing there is a solution that you can do.

Honest Discoveries

Day 8: January 8
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

The Huntridge Park LabyrinthA whole new perspective was appreciated today in the walk of a labyrinth I have not visited in about a year. Being an unusually warm day, the park that is usually vacant was an eye opener to realize either a new use as a place for the homeless or one I had not known before. There were only about 20 individuals and some were clustered in groups, though each found a welcome refuge in the park. As I walked the labyrinth a few discoursed political and conspiratorial without concern of my presence, which served to remind me that I had ventured into their territory. Their plight couldn’t help become part of my walk and as I noted how the park had been updated and somewhat cared for since my last visit, it seemed only natural for those seeking a haven to perhaps feel the extra care as well.

There is an overly large center in the middle of the labyrinth, where a singular tree branches out as an expanse of shelter and coverage where in the intensity of the summer heat, it might provide some needed relief. Thoughts of this relief occurred as I arrived at the center of my walk and as I meandered around the large open space, I noticed a car that had been sitting for some time parked next to mine. A woman and man emerged with bags and set up a line of these that stretched about 20 feet and contained clothing, shoes, totes and items for warmth. Slowly the park’s population took notice and migrated over to investigate and procure what might satisfy a need. I suddenly realized I had bags of collected coats to donate in the trunk of my car that I might have driven away with and not remembered until later.  An honest and grateful moment awakened me as to good intentions that were not yet carried out.

As my walk completed and I met the couple, the discovery of their project of community care fit the criteria for another project I had been involved with that made a great collaboration. When I looked back at the labyrinth, my walk must have sparked curiosity as there were now park occupants walking. It began as a simple walk and became a day of greater appreciation for the homeless community, personal realizations and new connections.

A suggestion to walk with:

What do we do with our honest discoveries on the labyrinth?

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth. 

In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.

Daily unfolding the process:
So far we have a daily blog and an unscheduled mid month podcast to explore the monthly focus. Share this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org

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.

Creating Community

TLS 365 Experience #27
March 27, 2017

 

To me, the labyrinth is a container for infinite possibilities, inspiration, and comfort.

After giving labyrinth walks in the Rochester , NY area for nearly 20 years, my partners and I have created an ever-growing awareness of the labyrinth in community.

Our events support the community, not only through the peace people get through walking, but in the collaboration created

We support a local massage school
by allowing their students to give chair massages at our walks.

 We support local healers
by allowing them to do energy work at the walks and advertise their practices.

We support a local college
by encouraging them to send their students to our walks to learn about the labyrinth.

We support local churches
by creating labyrinth programs for them
