Day 159: June 8
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration
Labyrinths come in all sorts of shapes and sizes each bringing a gift of experience, insight and exploration. They are much like humans as we gain more when we experience, we are inspired by the insights we develop and with exploration, we find out how much more we are capable of. The vastness of potential is unlimited.
Today’s exploration brings us the creativity of the Water Labyrinth of Perth. On the Eastern shores of the great expanse of Australia it might feel at home to use water in this spirited way. The design by artist Jeppe Hein was created for a shopping area called Forrest Place and is made up of nine large squares that shoot water upward from their borders at intermittent times. The actions of the water elevations around the squares are timed so that an individual can walk into a square and stay dry in the center. As the water recedes they can walk to the square that is not raising water and then on to the next at each patient interval until they weave their way around the squares for a complete walk. An ingenious idea to create interest and teach patience and play with predictability.
On this 159th day…
Explore your ability to make peace with patience and play with predictability. Make one path of both situations and observe how much you make out of them.
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 discover the World Wide Wow in the unique and innovative labyrinth designs world wide that inspire us to move beyond the everyday and give us a larger labyrinthic look at what our path can truly provide. From the idea of living outside your box to simply doing something different everyday, allow this journey of June to educate you and your relationship to life with the labyrinth. We’e taking a global course in Labyrinthing!
- Get 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.
- Act 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.
