Day 208 July 27
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Exploration & Return
The Legacy Labyrinths Project has a purpose of positioning a labyrinth on each of the seven continents by the year 2020 and by 2030 to have installed several on each continent. The vision is to have each of these labyrinths represent a connection of labyrinths represented in the world. So far there are four other labyrinths created on three continents. This marks the 5th labyrinth. This labyrinth located in the Village of Val Marie in the Saskatchewan Province of Canada. It is an 11 circuit Chartres style labyrinth measuring 85 feet in diameter and is made from native glacier formed stones. It is dedicated to the designer’s mother and similarly named in dedication to Mother Mary.
There are many wonderful world projects to inspire the gift that the labyrinth provides those interested with and a way to educate others to explore and discover their unique affinity to its design. The Legacy Labyrinths is just one. The Artline Project is another that brought together those labyrinths that fell on the 39th parallel and so brought a line across the United States Together. Like the Carol Shields Memorial, others have left a tribute to a cause, a person or a purpose. The great perspective of the labyrinth shows us there is no right or wrong, just the way things are and so what tribute we provide from its greater message that accepts all, is to be accepting of all ourselves. That is a legacy to appreciate and tribute.
On this 208th day…
Explore who you might honor with a labyrinth tribute and how it connects to a central purpose of service in your walk 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…. Click here to watch the progress grow this month!
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?
