The Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve is a small park located in the northern region of California, just off the Oakland border and part of the East Bay Regional Park District. For a relatively small park there is an extinct volcano and some amazing vantage points where the sun sets softly on the bay.
What is significant for us to know about this park is that there are four labyrinths (and perhaps a fifth has found a home recently). Those who put in the labyrinths did so in each of the directional points so that there is a labyrinth in the northern region, southern, east and west.

Even more significant is that in hiking the trails in the southern region one might happen upon a small heart shaped labyrinth.
From the visitor center it is just over a mile to discover the path and on this link is some helpful instruction so that it is easy to find, though it sounds like this park and all the labyrinths here would be a delightful journey to travel through. More information about the Park .
I know when I come upon some happy little find it is good heart medicine, simply because it is a surprise in a delightful way.
Today I am looking for more of the heart medicine in my walk and after. It is the steps we make off the labyrinth that are the true journey of the day.
May yours be heartfelt,
As we walk through the month of February and keep mindful of our heart focus, as we shared in the newsletter that it might be of value to discover the many heart shaped, heartfelt ideas or labyrinths that affected the heart.
This labyrinth is from San Pedro and was found on the Gallery NeuArtig. It was designed by Annemarie Rawlinson who is a local artist that wants to make San Pedro a city of labyrinths. This is a group called “Friends of the Labyrinth”.
We know it takes some process to put a labyrinth together, even if it is only one for your backyard. Consider the heart that goes into wanting to share this with all and Annmarie’s idea to make San Pedro the City of Labyrinths.
How amazing is that and how much do we all support her efforts. I speak for myself of course, though I think there is a little cheer in us all when someone takes on the cause of labyrinths for the greater good and a more global outlook.
Carry on Annmarie and San Pedro. It reminds me of the intentions I have and what I put my heart into to make it happen. There’s a song… that has the words “…when you put your heart in it, it can take you anywhere. ” I looked it up and it is a Kenny Rogers song, funny I found the lyrics on the “sing365.com” website, how much of a message is that…may we sing and walk with heart everyday!
For today…I’ll put my heart in it and enjoy where the path leads,
