364 Unbirthdays

Day 146: May 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

The labyrinth among birthday aftermathAfter the annual pilgrimage of another year sets in, what does the next day look like? There is much in celebration and anticipation that arrives with any impending event, though when the event has made its arrival and completes, where do we find ourselves in the emergence of a new voyage? It reflects an altogether different kind of realization, appreciation and celebration.

In our annual trip around the Sun, we move from a single step at the beginning and encounter a wide variety of experiences in our journey to the center of the labyrinth. Similarly our reverse path can be seen as a half year point, the shadow side of our walk, or even the inner experience to name a few of the many ways we might interpret our walk to full circle completion. It is the wisdom of those 364 different journeys that we do the living and the one day in which we give attention to appreciating those steps. The Unbirthday is the walk of awareness, education, application and contributions that make the birthday fully what it is.  For that one singular sensation that we give much attention to, much goes into making it so and when we stop to consider value in the Unbirthday, we can find a richness in the realization of how much it carries.

This double labyrinth design allows for many opportunities, though in the land of the Unbirthday, one could walk one side remembering the promise and messages of the birthday and then take that into the other side of each day of the unbirthday to keep a focus, dream or goal of the birthday. 


On this 146th day…
Celebrate the new freshness of your first step today and let it be a great realization of how the others are placed to make it count.


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.

Ides of February

Day 46: February 15
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Today is the walk of reflection of what the month has defined in the growing identity and honesty of who we are and what we are purposefully here to do.  It is again, the Ides of the month and a time that marks our half way point through this month of love.  Where the first two weeks bring a suggestion and walks to consider that suggestion in each day, the second half of the month takes what we discover, realize and appreciate and brings the dimension of reflection and purpose to a broader perspective.

We might think of this month as the first half of walking into the experience and the second half of walking out of the experience. How much more aware and evolved do we become when we have had the first half to consider? I’ve often heard that children have second half growth spurts in their annual aging as if the first half of their year was studying, reflecting and contemplating the world and the second half was diving in and exploring what their awareness could be.  Where the concept of discovery and honesty is both simple and deeply profound, appreciate what you do discover and discard anything that isn’t about your growth and discovery.


Here are a few prompts to consider in mid month reflection:

How has what is right and working shown up in your walk?
What is more true today than it was when you began?
What greater appreciation of your walk and yourself do you have?
What has changed in your attitude since the beginning of the year?
What has changed in your life since the beginning of the year?

Always feel free to join in with your thoughts, sharing and offerings that bring more wisdom to this experience.   Correspondence:



A suggestion to walk with:

On this 46th day…
What is your definition of love?


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.
Care to Share and Share to Care!

The Last Walk

TLS 365 Experience #306
December 31, 2017

When my children were young, we used to laugh about the last time we would be experiencing things on the last day of the year. It would begin with…”this is the last time I will…” and then we would break up in giggles. This went on all day long and it never ceased to be funny. It gave me an idea of how to lighten the year’s review with the last opportunities on the walk to be hosted on New Year’s Eve.

Explaining the concept of lasts to our participants in the candlelight walk, We walked the 12 paths with a 12 month review appreciating having had the experiences and gratitude for this last moment of thanks.  People lit their candles from others support resembling that which was present in support for the year. Each left something of the year in the center to leave behind and an engaged stone with a message to take into the new year. It was a walk full of good emotion and a few tears.  In the center we brought our candles together for a beautiful lighting and light hearted blessing for world peace, love and joy.

Wishing all of our 365 Experience Enthusiasts a year of prosperity in health, wealth and blissful new beginnings.
