Adjustments

TLS 365 Experience #153
July 30, 2017

Experimenting with groups, I asked one who were walking the labyrinth with me on this day to really take notice of the way they walked in the labyrinth and to be keenly aware of the labyrinth, their body movement and the way they took steps inward and outward. Then we walked again and I asked each to walk differently than the last person had, to adjust or change in a natural way the way they stepped in the labyrinth.

The conversation after the walk was rich. It made them more aware at first of the way they moved in life and where many held tension, it was released and noticed. Their was a greater appreciation in just becoming mindful in the first walk. In the second it became inventive and many found that they improved their walk by adjusting their posture and noting their bodies. Others found that they extended themselves in a way that was uncomfortable and adjusted throughout and others thought it playful.

Of the many epiphanies that were shared, the ones that were most moved realized how much they move themselves and their minds to adjust to please others. It became a metaphor of how we walk in life.

Unwind and Unbind

TLS 365 Experience #126
July 4, 2017

blue labyrinthOn this day of Independence,  I walk alone bringing back a memory of a group that had a focus on coming into their independence. The labyrinth was a natural compliment as it allows for a sense of liberation and freedom when we release the mind from the busy matters and unwind what is tangled in the body too.

There are so many different ways in which we feel we lose our natural ability and many times we constrict it ourself with tension or closing our mind. The walk of circular spiraling energy that moves us with purpose in an unwinding fashion naturally relaxes our grip and offers us a sense of freedom.

Where the group I led created their own dialogue from the question of what gives you freedom and what takes it away; the messages ranged from what was personal to world concerns. The metaphor of their messages came down to the realization that if we each take care of knowing what binds us and move in this way that unwinds us, our individual independence becomes world liberty.

A Dialect Detected

TLS 365 Experience #93
June 1, 2017

Love the feeling of a newness. To come into something for the first time or with new eyes.  Having made my travels include labyrinths found in the locations I visit, I will also travel the extra miles to find one nearby when there isn’t one waiting and include them on my trip.

In this way it is sometimes telling of my travel and purpose, laid out in metaphor  waiting for me to walk its message into my mind. But what I find is that when I do take to the road for what is work or to get away, the one thing that takes me the farthest is knowing that I included a visit to the labyrinth.

To me its my personal talk with the Earth from different perspectives and it creates a kind of labyrinth dialect in what it has to say.
