On the Spot

Day 24

January 24, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    What if you had to create a labyrinth on the spot, what would you use, how would you design it and why a specific design? Walk your original design into the walk of today.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Notice the elements you added to your experience, what did you walk away with?
  3. Share:   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 labyrinth design used in colorsHaving an opportunity to present a labyrinth on the fly to a group, the question that arose became about the materials to develop it with quickly. Finding what was available in a pile of cloth material, the path began to form as the idea for it’s design was imagined. Being able to tear it into lengths and tie them together formed a continuous strand. Once the length of material was connected, the path was laid out with ease  in just a few minutes.  The adjustment and alignment took an extra 10 minutes before the walk began.

With questions from the group that had already been put into place before the group took a short break, the design came together in what seemed an effortless experience. Everything moved into place in the right way at the right time. What was interesting was how the process we used in creation to completion seemed to have been adopted in the discussion that followed quite naturally.

Some times the labyrinth sets the tone and other times it just allows us to realize what we already know and organize it in a way that we can understand.

Creative Giving

Day 338  December 4
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment One: Giving
Days 335-340

Creative Giving

In a year that inspired a look into what we are capable of, the honesty of creativity brought ideas and opportunities to light with different perspectives. Creativity seemed to burgeon and ideas were plentiful in the variety and open doors that offered a way along a path to the other side. 

Focusing on one topic each month such as the spiral in March or the hear in February, offered new ways to appreciate different values than had been explored. Creativity added unique features and allowed a drop into our own natural wonders to use a little differently. 

We can think of how to create a different walk, and then we might design it or apply it with unique features to bring out the most in the experience. From creative ideas expressed, comes innovative twists that show us the same with a different addition or subtraction, sometimes offering a whole new way to walk. 

Not being able to travel this summer, the armchair labyrinth world excursion not only brought forward different designs not popularly posted, yet the story behind the design or the materials utilized brought out a creative appreciation. It also created a labyrinth design of travel in the navigating from country to country and back again, a labyrinth found its way into the experience on a subtle level of creativity. 

Creativity is everywhere, diving into it is an honest way to give of and into your abilities.


Daily Insights of this 338th day…
Consider the creativity in your giving and receiving today on the path.

Refresh, Renewal and Redesigns of Your Year

31 daily walks. ideas, topics and considerations for personal appreciation to professional sharing will be focused in this month utilizing six five-star labyrinths and a summary day to encompass what the magnitude of what has been discovered this year and bring it forward as gifts realized in the ways we gave to ourselves and others and received for ourselves and others.

  1. Follow along Daily or as often as you can
  2. Consider what you have created or developed this year in regard to honest abilities
  3. Reflect on the five day segment focuses throughout the month with those abilities
  4. Review, journal, create or develop your own reflection in a daily experience
  5. Share your experience and add to the Daily Wisdom of the 365 Experience

Review the Gifts in Five Day Segments:

    • Giving to ourselves as well as what we give to others is a reminder of what we do possess in gifts, capacity, ability, skills, and talent that bring us fulfillment. The first five days will focus on what has been developed in this year and what it gave.
    • Inspiration in the inner motivation we possess, the focus of looking back at our discoveries to notice over the next five days about what inspired our capabilities into actionable realizations will be a great topic to select meaningful moments this year.
    • Fortitude in the courage, resilience and mettle that have risen this year when in consideration of the ways we understand, use, and apply the labyrinth and relate it to ourselves either personally or professionally, the next five days will be reflective.
    • Talent is something everyone possesses, discovering natural gifts using the labyrinth in a variety of ways reveals depth of talent to reconsider and perhaps discover something new over the following five days.
    • Skill is learned, developed, and practiced through desire and the more we can apply it in various ways, the more we comprehend with new levels of learning. The last five days will be an opportunity to renew, remember and redesign skills.

Consider the weekly and daily focus presented this month in review and rediscover through the many ways you have used or ideas below that you can use the labyrinth with:

• 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.

Mining the Line

Cleaning out the garage today and challenged to throw out a long thin lightweight tube. I thought to cut it in pieces to toss out easier and then had an idea to cut the pieces evenly except for three. The three began the triangular outline and the rest found their way into this design of the line of the mind.

In Marvelous Memorial

Day 207  July 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return

an image of the Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth

The Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth in Kings Park Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Photo Credits: ft3, architecture design

The Manitoba Labyrinth Network was asked to join forces to honor the legendary work of  Carol Shields. She was a power house of a woman who grew up not far from where I did in Illinois. As she grew into her destiny, Toronto and then Manitoba became destinations for her explorations of life. She found it in her writing and through novels, championing the spirit of writers as a renowned international author and Manitoba’s only Pulitzer Prize winner. She has received 16 doctoral awards, the Queen Elizabeth Golden Jubilee Award and elevated to Chancellor of the University of Winnipeg.

In 2009 the design of the labyrinth emerged in honor of Carol Shields in Kings Park, an area of Winnipeg, Manitoba  with a memorial garden, a quote wall and a versatilely designed labyrinth. The design uses some of the shrubs from her novel, Larry’s Party,  about a protagonist who becomes a maze and labyrinth designer after visiting the English Hampton Court labyrinth. The labyrinth design is also gently sloped in the center, which is said to promote the healing effects of relaxation. It seems Carol’s spirit is within the walk, still aiding and assisting other’s as was her abundant natural gift.

There was much thought and care in designing and implementing this labyrinth that continues to give and its very existence somehow seems to emulate the giving nature of  this remarkable woman. We are fortunate to have explored the values displayed throughout in this voyage of Canada. If you didn’t know her, she lives on in hearts, memories, publications, labyrinths and in this memorial.

 

On this 207th day…
Explore the legacy of your steps in the labyrinth, what has it yielded and how has it inspired?

World Wide Explorations in the Month of July 2018 for the TLS 365 Experience. Part II
Welcome July!

Our exploration this month is to Walk in reflection of our direction. We traveled from America’s west coast to Australia, Asia and the Swedish Lapland’s and found our centered point in Austria by the month’s end. July will complete our world walk and return us to American shores. It’s been a wild and wooly time of exploration in the world to expand our cultural and connective perspective of the labyrinths and their purposes worldwide. This is indeed the global course in Labyrinthing with world wondering discovered in our wandering.
This month, we return from our center in Austria and traverse the world.

  1. Go Global….Explore the World
    Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts. Note how these designs are  outside the box of traditional design and how they might take us outside the design we’ve been living in.  They can be quite diverse or small simple adjustments that make it different too. From Austria to Portland… the second half begins!
  2. Grow Local…. Bring the World to you
    Let your walks, programs, designs, creations and simple enthusiasm be inspired by what the world offers us with fresh ways to create new experiences in the 30 days of this month. If it is doing something different each day, walking a new labyrinth, designing, researching or some new way to share, do it then share it with us! By becoming acquainted with the unique labyrinths of the world, we can be inspired as to why they are different, how they serve and what they offer on the same path we walk on in our home or local community area. What will you have created by the end of our month?

Two Become One

Day 194  July 13
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return

a partial view of both turf maze and labyrinth brick path.

The Labyrinths of England and Great Britain are plentiful, historic and revolutionary. They come in all shapes and sizes though we know them for their turf construction, cultural acceptance and often mysterious histories. Whether its ritual, celebration or statement; England holds a bastion of wealth in labyrinth lore. Exploring is a wonderful adventure with the labyrinths of England.

If you are at all familiar with labyrinths, you know they are not a maze, though a maze can be a labyrinth. The two are often confused and it is quite interesting to see notable art and literary works that are unclear or incorrect. It is thus delightful to discover the Archbishop’s Maze at Grey’s Court near Henley-on-Thames, west of London. It is both a turf maze and a labyrinth, if you walk the path you discover the labyrinth and if you stay on the turf it becomes the magical message of the maze.  It is located just beyond the Kitchen Gardens.

Commissioned in 1981, the labyrinth was designed with Archbishop Runcie’s enthronement speech in mind which urged the people to help each other unravel the maze of life. The labyrinth path is almost a quarter of a mile in length and at its center is a plaque that designates the four directions of nature as well as a junction of the crucifix. The seven rings of the labyrinth celebrate the seven days of creation and the entire design represents a crown of thorns. From the the religious intent to the spiritual opening all can come together in celebrating unraveling life’s mysteries together.

Our journey is all about the coming together of questions and answers, ideas and actions and exploration that brings harmony to the opposites. There we will find our truth and our capacities. As England is rich with labyrinth availability and wisdom, let this be a mere introduction of the variety that awaits. Explore and discover further adventures from those who have come together to provide the lessons of the labyrinth in cultural appreciation in England and beyond.

Crossing the expanse of Spain from Santiago to near the French border is another Camino of discovery in the small town of Tarragona.

It is a touristy area with parks, beaches and attractions and it’s proximity to the south of France is influenced with expressions of Spain and France.

Located at a sea side park is the Labyrinth de Aqua, a spiraled labyrinth of water that becomes illuminated in the evenings for visual beauty and a joyous playful respite from the heat. Designed for its functionality and for its visual appeal, the labyrinth is finding its way in the world.

Five circuit rings make up a circular labyrinth with simple spaces for egress that also double as a fountain

Traveling north to Paris another fountain calls attention to the work of sculpture Margaret Pan. In the 1980’s a surge of artistic restoration began in hopes of bringing a balance of spirituality to the communities of Old Paris and through a contest, Pan became the selected artist representing the simplicity of flow in water and white near Belleville district’s park area between the 11th and 19th arrondissements.

2100 meters of corrugated cardboard are massed in folds that stand approx seven feet to create a huge labyrinth of paper.

With more appreciation for the application of the labyrinth as Art, designer Micheal Pistoletto impresses France with his artistic labyrinth rendering in 2100 meters of corrugated cardboard at the Galleria Continua Les Moulins only about an hour away from the fountain sculpture in Paris.

The labyrinth is many things to many people and in crossing the border from Spain to France and transcending the labyrinths of prehistoric carvings and glyphs to the medieval majesties into the times of our present lives, the labyrinth might be an expression of our civilizations passion and purpose. Our purpose of the month is to explore, our purpose of the year is to discover the possibilities of our truths. In the fascinating countries that bring us such rich history, we are blessed to discover there is so much more open to interpretation.

 

On this 192nd day…
Explore the many ways you appreciate the labyrinth in both passion and purpose from the simple drawings to the permanent structures and the programs for others to the simple walks of reflection.

A Walking Gift in the Blue Labyrinth

In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration

The Katoomba Labyrinth of the Blue Mountains Photo Credits Katoomba Labyrinth Facebook Page

On the Edge of Australia in the Blue Mountains is a community garden that brings out the best in those who walk its artistic design. The labyrinth is situated within a historic landmark site in an area called New South Wales in the town of Katoomba. Its brick and mosaic design features a large mosaic in the center to symbolize our unity. The Katoomba region is in the area called the Blue Labyrinth, referring to the mountain range for its natural wonders, hiking and sacred respect.

Exploring this labyrinth, a true find was discovered in the video made by Lisa Gidlow Moriarty of Paths of Peace. Walk the labyrinth in peaceful steps as if you are there. Notice how the natural artistic design and your mind unwind in real time appreciation. This might be the exploration many might not make in this lifetime, though it is a true gift to be able to explore through the help of another’s giving nature. Enjoy your explorations.

 

On this 161st day…
Explore the gifts of your abilities that you give so easily to others, and the ones that you might like to share more of. Walk on the how and the why….

Welcome the Joy of June! We begin to find ourselves nearing the middle of the year in this month’s arrival and in our year long program of exploration and celebration of our abilities, June offers us a chance to recognize ourselves in the world of labyrinths. This month we become global in our pursuits on the path of possibilities and explore the labyrinths of the world that move past the traditional and explore the fullness of their design capacity.  Your opportunity is to join in with sharing the natural, inspired and differently designed labyrinths of the world.whatJune

Whether it is in the programming you offer for education, the design you build to provide insight, the artistry you create to share perspective or the unique ways in which you walk or connect to embrace an experience, how might those unique differences speak to your journey and yourself in the year that lives more honestly in who we truly are?

 

June 1st – Global to Local: 

Today’s design comes from the Oregon coast where artist Denny Dyke makes a composite of symbols and designs of the labyrinth into one walking experience. The wonder is in the artist who simply puts together the things that are important and combines the pieces to make one whole experience. Today discover how can you make more out of more labyrinths. I’ve often put together many labyrinths for one experience so can relate to this Artist and appreciate the reminder to be barefoot into the goodness of what nature provides. Where you don’t have a beach, you might have a sandbox or a box for sand and finger designs.

On this 152nd day…
Explore an idea of an area of your life this month where you would like to get out of the box of conformity.

    Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts.

Scrabyrinthing

Day 139: May 19
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Scrabblizing the Labyrinth with ideas from the Amused Muse 2018As the play with words continues on our scrabble message boards today, a number of expressions have come up that make the experience all the more enjoyable in creating designs with words and words of design. It seemed it would be a fun game to develop and so am putting together designs and ideas for something that could be educational and inspirational. With young students, it’s typical for us to create labyrinths out of a variety of materials that are on hand or with a greater intention, such as canned or boxed food for a food or gloves and mittens for a mitten labyrinth. Though with words and designs it can inspire something new.

These were a few of the designs that speak to our purpose in this year of finding our greater abilities and a definition of what the labyrinth is. In the game of Scrabble there is a limitation with the number of letters available so some creative solutions are coming forth to explore on the path, with the path and for the path of the labyrinth.  Cause for appreciation, celebration with inspired realization

On this 139th day…
Walk with your favorite expressions of the labyrinth in quote, story or saying. Observe the ways in which you are that expression.

 


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.
