Day 212 July 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return
On this last day of the month and the end of the month of Exploration and Return, we have brought back much in our voyage of what the path is all about. We have found much evidence to support our year long journey of honest living and growing what is within. The path of exploration has yielded quite a journey of diving in and discovering what is possible through the messages of the labyrinth that appeared along the way.
In June we began this journey unsure of its destination and in June we return from it with much more of a world connection than we might otherwise would have known. We have traveled the world and touched only the surface. We began with the art of Denny Dyke, Sand Master of art and labyrinths in the Northwest region of the United States and we end with the stone art of Jeffrey Bale there too. It is interesting that I met both at last year’s Gathering and hadn’t realized how the ending of this journey would bring it all together again. Of course that is all in the nature of the walk, isn’t it?
Blessings to all who have become part of this journey and much in gratitude for those who have shared in our walks, talks and in other ways. Join us in August for a new excursion about our state of united ness.
On this 212th day…
Explore the ways you come to an ending and find a new beginning in your walk of today.
Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit. Lets see if we can make a labyrinth pathway out of the month of travels based on the locations offered. We began in Portland, Oregon and ended on Bainbridge, Island, Washington. Click here to see how our labyrinth grew this month!
Our completed map of Exploration from the Northwestern United States to Austria in June and Austria to the Northwestern United States in July. Our circle is complete and richer for the experience!
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.
- 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!
- 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?
