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.

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.

Questions and Answers

TLS 365 Experience #177
Aug. 24, 2017

It was a beautiful day and one of relative calm to walk the labyrinth as a group. We had a painted design outdoors and a canvas labyrinth we had intended to use indoors. With the warmth and call of nature, we opted to move outdoors with intention to walk the labyrinth noting and answering the questions that were affixed to the borders with Post It Notes along the path. As we independently found our answers, we wrote them out in brevity each on a separate post it note and stuck it to the path border where ever we happened to be in the moment of realization.

As our walk progressed, post it notes created our borders with questions and answers. When all had completed we took another walk and found how interestingly enough the answers to a previous question found themselves situated with a different question. It was  a wonderful way to appreciate the value of questions and answers and afterwards in our sharing circle, the conversation grew rich in the discussion about how are questions become our answers and how the answers created questions. In the midst of our communication, a gust of heavy wind stirred up from the otherwise calm day and this unexpected force blew the post it notes into the air and off the painted lines of the labyrinth.

It was as if our questions and answers had come to life, reinforcing our conversation to dance in the sky together as they uplifted with the wind into a recycled purpose. It furthered our appreciation for the walk, the sharing and the messages that came. We couldn’t have planned a better ending or perspective.

Tiny Steps

TLS 365 Experience #167
Aug. 14, 2017

Preschool Children on the labyrinth When it comes to children on the labyrinth, their small steps speak volumes of education and entertainment for any who are lucky enough to be in earshot. Sharing an opportunity with our preschool children one afternoon, I was curious to see where their curiosity and natural exploration would lead them.

So I lead them to the labyrinth and asked them to tell me what they saw in looking at the labyrinth. The answers were a priceless collection of ideas. Then I asked them to explore and some ran, some were tentative and still others were remarkably care free. At first they formed a line and wiggled as they walked. Then they began to play a kind of snake game trailing after each other.

The more they moved, the more they became independent and soon there was a mixture of collective movement in independent style. I marveled at watching how they interacted with the labyrinth in their own way and how these little tiny beings took steps to explore every inch and make it their playground of discovery.

True Learning

TLS 365 Experience #106
June 14, 2017

My education comes when I share. I may begin sharing about the labyrinth with groups and organizations and even offering some innovative ideas in my walks, though the true learning comes in observing the interactions of people with the labyrinth and each other. It is in what they share that my education always improves.

Then, appreciation raises considerably.

Full Circle

TLS 365 Experience #104
June 12, 2017

I had walked the labyrinth for years independently enjoying my experience before sharing it with others. I know what I felt, though like many researched, read and discovered the many nuances and fascinating perspectives over time. Somehow each little bit of information made the experience that much more significant and it seemed like this pattern held both simplicity and complexity.

When I was asked to share the experience, it was for a change of seasons and a change of direction. Somehow I just knew what I would share as we are always about change on the labyrinth, and always moving in new directions.  I assembled quotes of so many that had walked before with perspectives of each walk and very simply asked each to embrace the change each felt from path to path and start to finish. The nervousness disappeared when I invited each to the experience as I didn’t need to do anything but allow each to walk their way and discover as I had.

Our talk that followed was full of rich and appreciable stories and sharing. I found it an incredible honor to share what I deeply related to and discover some of the same messages I had experienced over time being repeated in this circle of individuals. I realized this is what it meant to come full circle… on this circle of steps.

Making Space for Everyone’s Place

TLS 365 Experience #58
April 27, 2017

It is important to allow room for sharing experiences of the labyrinth.

When working with a group, allow people to share their experiences with the group. Provide a journal for people to write in. They can also read what other people wrote about their own experiences. It seems that people are more willing to own their own experiences and celebrate them if others share theirs.

It makes them feel like they are part of a community of like-minded souls and not “different.”

The Courage of Curiosity

TLS 365 Experience #48
April 17, 2017

Jodi Lorimer

I was first attracted to the labyrinth by a newspaper article about people walking it as a meditative exercise, which didn’t make any sense to me. I understood it as a frightening place inhabited by a cannibalistic monster that would eat you.

I was compelled, like many others, to investigate what this symbol meant and where it came from. Gradually, my search turned into a book, which I never imagined writing until I had.

The research required many years and reading many, many books, which led me into places I’d never imagined going. In talking to others about the book and its subject, I was delighted to share my knowledge and hear about their experiences.

Connected to Creation

TLS 365 Experience #34
April 3, 2017

At least four times a year, we set up the Peace/Shalom labyrinth in the hospital chapel for staff, patients and the community to use.

There have been numerous healing experiences shared and profound reactions for some of the patients I have worked with.

The responses are positive and for me being so connected to the creation of this labyrinth feeds my soul and guides me to keep sharing with everyone.
