    Walk with your ancestors on a journey today. Whatever questions you may have, allow you to step into an experience with your roots and observe how they might answer your initial questions.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Beyond the initial answers, what else did you walk away with in your walk of the ancestors?
  3. Share:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

Labyrinth in Oneness

 

“Walking home to country is a connection our people have always had with Mother Earth

Our culture is defined by the closeness of family circles and staying connected to the people within it. The labyrinth invites and welcomes people to walk the path together – it calls them to the land in oneness.”

We are called to take this path in the company of like minded companions.

Our joint task and sacred obligation is to effect radical hospitality with each other, so each of us may be fully welcomed for who we are and who we must become together. We do this in the spirit of compassion and with the intention to honor both  our individual and collective journeys.

Legend

Day 288  October 15
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Partial turns on a SouthWest Labyrinth of stone in the desert with Metaphor of the Legend

Topic: Legend

An epic tale of time unfolding in stories remembered, shared
and verified by the heart. 


The  Message:

Embellishing a tale to explain its origins or purpose that leave a lasting trail in triumph or truth are the epic narrative of legend. The labyrinth has left many a legend of curious telling in the origins, purpose and practice that it provides. One must find their own way of this winding path for their own truth telling. Legend creates a story to fill in the blanks and adds heroic qualities to explain the unexplainable. The steps that create a personal legend on the labyrinth can reveal epic truth without need for embellishment. It can be a simple walk of truth or a revelation into the triumph of a new honest realization of what is possible.  

The Magic: 

Larger than life realizations have occurred on the labyrinth and while epic in proportion of the moment, can be captured in the heart as a marker of time when possibility came to meet potential and the unbelievable became magically believable. These are the moments when the HOW of life arrived in an unseen manor and championed an opportunity.  The path of the labyrinth has a magical way of stealing what isn’t to reveal what is. 

 


Daily Insights : On this 288th day…
Let your walk of this day pave a path of epic realization.

Scrabyrinthing

Day 139: May 19
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Scrabblizing the Labyrinth with ideas from the Amused Muse 2018As the play with words continues on our scrabble message boards today, a number of expressions have come up that make the experience all the more enjoyable in creating designs with words and words of design. It seemed it would be a fun game to develop and so am putting together designs and ideas for something that could be educational and inspirational. With young students, it’s typical for us to create labyrinths out of a variety of materials that are on hand or with a greater intention, such as canned or boxed food for a food or gloves and mittens for a mitten labyrinth. Though with words and designs it can inspire something new.

These were a few of the designs that speak to our purpose in this year of finding our greater abilities and a definition of what the labyrinth is. In the game of Scrabble there is a limitation with the number of letters available so some creative solutions are coming forth to explore on the path, with the path and for the path of the labyrinth.  Cause for appreciation, celebration with inspired realization

On this 139th day…
Walk with your favorite expressions of the labyrinth in quote, story or saying. Observe the ways in which you are that expression.

 


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.

Notes of Appreciation

Day 132: May 12
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Musical path of the labyrinthInspired by music today and celebrating the song of our soul. What makes us move, change attitude and appreciate our surroundings more than a tune that is timeless. Music has a way of speaking to our heart and can interrupt the path we may have been traveling that wasn’t as productive. With music we move differently, step livelier and our path has a partner that speaks to something inside that reminds us that everything is ok.

This design came about in the care of my mother who loves to sing and appreciates music. In those times when she isn’t moving so well or seems to forget, turning on a little music makes all the difference. Drawing out a few notes I was reminded of the music within the labyrinth and its tonal coordinates. Beginning with one note is like beginning with one step;  soon the rest seems to follow in an effortless way. This effortless is a simple example of our honest abilities being used without much consideration when we are in tuned to something we appreciate.

On this 132nd day…
Celebrate the music in your soul steps today, what tune is playing?

Sweet Paths of Imagination

Day 106: April 16
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The Inner meander of Candy Land meets the labyrinthInspired by the game of Candy Land while playing games with youth, the amusement of remembering the simplicity of old fashioned board games rose. Designed in 1948 by a woman with polio, it was tested out in hospital wards with children before being introduced to the public. Having created a variety of life affirming games, some with boards and spinners, I decided to replicate the game of Candy Land after our discussion and laid out the labyrinth while participants made up the various sweet spots and ominous traps while a few others decorated the sides of a box for dice. In short order we had a make shift game using the labyrinth as the path. We altered the experience with a variety of movement techniques to find our way to the center, alternative ideas of what we might do at the sweet spots and collaborative strategies at the places where questionable conundrums came to pass. Lot of variety and much fun. It inspired a number of other activities that could be experienced with the labyrinth. The inside of this labyrinth’s center meander is a replica of the game board path of Candy Land.

Play is an essential of life and an amusing way to educate ourselves on any subject with more experiential hands on appreciation. We have more creativity and insight when we let our imagination take hold and often find much more than we bargained for. When we allow ourselves to play with life, we find an honest appreciation in our capabilities and in play we realize much more than we would were we to read, research, hear or memorize.

On this 106th day…
How might you play with the labyrinth today?

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

Season of Construction

Day 97: April 7
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Labyrinth for a Construction SeasonOne could be confounded by the sudden flip of a switch that seemed to take place a few days ago when the Winter season moved into construction season.  What were open roadways now became littered with traffic cones and barrels, barricades and an assortment of ominous looking machines designed to alter the normal routines of our day. After developing an intimate relationship with the striped barrels each day that routinely began to divert my path leading to detours to the left and right that circled back to find the main road in a circuitous manner that could only be described as labyrinthic; it dawned that each day’s travels had been following a path that redirected thought, emotion and physical direction.

This labyrinth under construction brings us through the barricades and beyond where we are redirected not to go, only to find that going there might reveal the secrets under the symbolic manhole cover. Turning mystery into mirth this design brings together the elements of amusement, simplicity and new perspective for a more interesting outcome that inspires creativity with a little cheek!

Follow the lighter gray path from thick to thin and back again.

On this 97th day…
In your walk or work of this day, can you define a way to create something more out of what you are given?

Eleven Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #286
December 11, 2017

A labyrinth of eleven'sOn this day of 11, comes the double benefit of the singular and significant number of one. Offered in the spirit of oneness, is the 11 labyrinth. Sitting in school, I had to come up with a design and nothing came except the number 11, which was the date I had put at the top of my paper. So I began to draw the number eleven on my paper in different directions. It seemed only natural to find a winding path through them and a point at where one reached the center or an end. Since this time, I’ve made a number of numbers and added to the eleven labyrinth, though this is the original simple beginning. Happy Day of Eleven!
