Walking the Months

TLS 365 Experience #284
December 9, 2017

December brings end of the year busy activities and often I’ve waited til the last week of the month to truly evaluate the year, it seems rather rushed. Instead, I’ve taken to walking the labyrinth in consideration of a full month at a time, beginning with January.

Then in the next walk, I contemplate the next month, February and so on. In this way I make 12 walks during the month to review with a simple set of questions. What did I intend for the month before it began? I walk in with this question in mind to understand my hopes and dreams. As I reach the center I ask what did I accomplish, without any focus on what I didn’t. As I return I reflect on how it all mattered, appreciating what I received, what I became and what more I was able to do.

I would journal a bit after each of these walks and then would look at all my notes before walking once to appreciate the fullness of the year.

Evaluating and Supporting

TLS 365 Experience #221
October 7, 2017

A friend and fellow Labyrinth Facilitator was working toward her Veriditas Facilitation requirements and asked me to evaluate one of her walks. It was a pleasure and a contribution to her education and mine as evaluator. She created a marvelous walk and full experience for individuals. As they asked many questions afterwards it was a great result of stirring curiosity and creating a desire to know and understand more.

I found in being present, assisting and evaluating, it was a contribution I received in supporting her work, just in watching how she touched others. We receive when we give and we give when we receive.

How to Expand

TLS 365 Experience #218
October 4, 2017

With the sharing that the labyrinth naturally invites;  it is hard not to contribute something somewhere when we involve ourselves with the labyrinth.

  • It can be in the form of a simple education or information.
  • It can be in a new design of the labyrinth.
  • It can be in an expression or idea that comes from a walk.
  • It can be in facilitating an experience for others.
  • It can come from a presentation about labyrinths.
  • It can come in building a labyrinth.
  • It can come in walking and feeling more personally responsible.
  • It can come in a How To example shared.
  • It can be an epiphany that arrives in finger tracing the path.
  • It can come in walking with others.
  • It can come in lending expertise.
  • It can come when we support others who share.
  • It can come when exploring the ways to walk with others.
  • It be personal in giving to ourselves.
  • It can be in how and what we share with others enjoyably.
  • It can be found in professional learning or sharing.
  • It can be a purpose filled mission for ourselves and others.
  • It can fill us when we are given ideas, advice, and acknowledgement too.

Contribution, I find, is a gift of giving, sharing and receiving.
Contribution of the labyrinth is an awareness, education and applicable experience.

Love Meditation Walk

TLS 365 Experience #102
June 10, 2017

Heart Centered LabyrinthToday I walked with love.

I just felt the lack of it in my own heart and thought I would use the labyrinth to bring it back. I took a long breath in as I walked and thought about what I love and let the feelings surround me keeping my focus on the things that I really loved all the way around the first length of the pathway. When I made a turn I took in another breath and thought about the places I loved in the world, from my home to the areas I regularly frequented to the larger places in the world. On the next turn I thought about all the activities that I loved being engaged in and repeated the thought throughout the length of pathway.

I went on in this way considering the many ways that I love and appreciate and what a wonderful feeling came over. I eventually got around to the people I loved from friends, to family to those more immediate to those far away.

Just focusing on that one word brought me so much and in walking, I was able to get the feelings flowing and activating throughout so that the giving of attention created the receiving of it too.

Go out and love yourself a few laps today and feel great in the process!
