Idle Insights

Day 11: January 11
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

The idle moments can provide a useful reflection of what we do in the waiting periods of our lives. Today was met with doctor calls and hospital visits. Lots of time in between and no labyrinth to walk in the waiting, though there is always a way when we get clear about our intentions. Labyrinths in hospitals provide a benefit to waiting family members, patients, staff and community in a variety of ways. On the other side of town, there is a labyrinth at one of the hospitals so the pattern has been established and the labyrinth made on paper today might well become the labyrinth of this hospital in the future.

The test of time and patience walked in my fingers today and with the reflection in being honest with myself about expectation and defining the results, the clarity of the walk wasn’t about whether I would find function with my time or more patience, it was about how much I would create with the time in between. Once the question of being honest with the circumstance and myself was on the table, there wasn’t a need to search; leaving only wide open wonder to explore with what was available.

A suggestion to walk with:

Between drama or dreams, which is honest?

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth. 

In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.

Daily unfolding the process:
So far we have a daily blog and an unscheduled mid month podcast to explore the monthly focus. Share this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org

Planting Seeds of Creativity

TLS 365 Experience #231
October 17 2017

Greek Key and Labyrinth The experience of sharing the seed patterns with a group of students had them doodling and designing all afternoon. In fact the next time I visited the class, new designs and ideas germinated from these seed patterns and many had been able to share where they had seen the pattern show up in design, advertising and in items found around the house.

What began as a simple idea to show the formation and foundation of the design, had blossomed into a greater understanding and application for life.

Body Paths

TLS 365 Experience #139
July 17, 2017

Finger Print LabyrinthIn class we were investigating finger prints. In identifying the different types of basic prints and the line definitions that are unique to each, the idea of the lines of the labyrinth came up.

Sharing the labyrinth, we decided to create our own identity labyrinths based on finger prints. Knowing that many of our body lines also are distinct, we further investigated the lines in the elbows, ears, feet, patterns in the tongue, freckles and what ever visible defining lines we might discover and found our own patterns and labyrinths developing.

In many ways we are a walking labyrinth and when we walk the labyrinth we discover more about what our lines, pathways and borders reveal.

Labyrinths In Life

TLS 365 Experience #132
July 10, 2017

Labyrinth sewer coverWhen your focus is about the labyrinth, they seem to show up everywhere. From the simple Greek Key design to a fully walkable permanent design;  we can find them in society and nature.

The geometric shapes become more plentiful and seem to be represented in pattern and fabric and over the years I have found them in the most interesting of areas and places I wouldn’t really expect.

Meanders in nature and design, clothing and architecture are really more common than we might think. Look up, look down they are all around.

Natural Sole

TLS 365 Experience #130
July 8, 2017

Walking naturally and with sole appreciationI enjoy feeling connected to the labyrinth in my walk.

I really appreciate the times when a natural meeting of my barefoot being integrates with the path of purpose for the moment. It brings a sense of organic freedom and I notice I move differently than when I walk in shoes.

I seem to feel each step more intimately and integrate the experience with a greater sensory perception. I feel the coolness of the stone and notice the unevenness of the pattern. I become aware of the leaves, twigs and seeds that have become windswept onto the path now with touch, sound and visual encounter.

As I complete my experience, I am reminded of how much more I absorbed, as I attempt to brush away the sand, leaves and particles tucked into the crevices of the labyrinth that have imprinted new patterned indents into my sole.  I can reflect perhaps a little more expansively on the patterns and impressions that have been left upon my soul when I walk in this natural way.
