Greater than Grief

Day 10

January 10, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Today’s Walk:
    Do you have an individual, group or community in mind as you begin a labyrinth? How do they benefit from your experience?
  2. For Today’s Experience: 
    Observe your conscious ways of sharing by thinking of others in your walk today.
  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:

Grief Labyrinth Design by E. ChaseI have always been drawn to labyrinth but when i lost my husband of 36 years to Esophageal cancer only 6 weeks from diagnosis I was devastated. A friend invited me to a labyrinth walk at here church and I went and found peace for the first time since his loss.

I found that my walking and creating labyrinths I was able to start healing and in my healing I am able to bring labyrinths to others to help them.  I have created a 12 foot canvas labyrinth and about 15 lap labyrinths in the last year that I take different places to allow others the chance to experience the life changing powers of the labyrinth.

I have been taking my labyrinths to parks, the library and just last week to a Metaphysical shop so people can experience them.
I also will be offering Make Your own Labyrinth classes so others can have a labyrinth at home to use.

I am seeing labyrinths in so much of life now. I am learning to look at life as a metaphor and how the labyrinth mirrors that in many ways. I try to get people together at least once a month for a labyrinth walk.

Day 292  October 19
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Pinecone labyrinth on the river with meditative metaphor by

Topic: Meditative

Being of the moment in the moment

The  Message:

Meditation isn’t a great mystery or something that confounds. It is the simple act of being fully available to the task at hand. It is being all in and single purposed in what you are compelled to do. It isn’t sitting and chanting, but it can be. It isn’t a practice, yet it can be to develop and acquaint one’s self with one’s self more proficiently. To be meditative means to surrender anything that isn’t part of what you are doing and being entirely focused. Dancing, painting, writing, creating, and playing are simple forms of being in the meditative space. Being in love can be meditative as we give ourselves wholly into the experience. It isn’t just mindfulness, it is full beingness and when we can be present with everything, we can then begin to understand a fuller capacities. 

The Magic: 

Devoting a time in the day when all else goes away and the footsteps make a light sound to feel the impact of the ground… it is a moment to feel the function of the body and the release of the busy mind to appreciate the feeling and intuitive one. When one can simply fall in love with the experience, the moments become magical and appreciative. 


Daily Insights : On this 292nd day…
Surrender your steps and observe what you fall into along the path way today.

Honey Adjustments

Day 93: April 3
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Honey Adjustments from maze to labyrinthThe fun is where we find it. Last month when playing with Mom’s cereal, we had a wonderful time creating a number of labyrinth designs. This was inspired by the cereal’s package, which Mom thought was a labyrinth.

With a few simple adjustments to the packaging, it became a true labyrinth. This was a moment of spotting an opportunity and playing both outside and inside the box. Labyrinths are everywhere:)

Time for a little Cheeri-O!

On this 93rd day…
Play I Spy today and notice what you can change in your environment to suit your needs with a little amusement.



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!

A Tool Of Gratitude

TLS 365 Experience #268
November 23, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving! It is a day for thanks and giving to foster the rest of the days to be of similar praise.

A day of Great and Full Tnanks St. Louis 2010 LATEach walk is one of gratitude, even when we don’t seem to realize it. Creating, discovering, or finding a familiar path is the first gratitude. Without its being there, we would not walk the path…and we have gratitude.  Coming to the walk, arrives in listening to our inner voice and how it calls us to walk. Honoring that is something to be thankful for.  Walking it and allowing for the paths to provide is yet another great and fullness of the labyrinth. Being fast, slow or somewhere in between is our presence on the labyrinth and noticing it is another gift we are appreciative of. Observance itself is a part of our being, though a skill that grows with use and our practice is another gratitude we can enjoy. Completing our walk brings a sense of accomplishment and with that a natural self appreciation too.

No matter how you walk, there is a great sense of appreciation, thankfulness and gratitude that accompanies the labyrinth discovered by those who walk and share it.

Creating Labyrinth Energy

TLS 365 Experience #98
June 6, 2017

As the world is in constant change and flow, I find the labyrinth a place to accept the flow of my energy as an individual on it, though the labyrinth structure remains the same. It represents the steady and true to our understanding as it sits waiting for use and performs with the same parameters of stillness each time. I am one factor that creates change. The labyrinth doesn’t really change, I do.

The others who walk it do the same, bringing their energy to the experience and maybe leaving something behind.  It makes me consider who walked before me and who walks after as a result.

As everything that is used, shows its wear, the labyrinth change is subtle. The stones may move or roll away, the design may shift, paint can fade and marks appear on its surface. It holds a place for all of us and contains the energy of what we have infused it with. A labyrinth that looks old or care worn, is a labyrinth that has much to tell us.
