What is a Labyrinth? - Many people think a labyrinth is a type of a maze. It is not. When you enter a maze, there is one way in and another way out. A maze keeps you guessing about what the correct direction is to take and where it will lead you. In a maze one must be mindful of the ‘traps’ that are presented and be observant of where you have been and where you are headed.
A labyrinth is an ancient meditational and spiritual geometric space. In the labyrinth, there is only one path in and the same path leading out. The labyrinth allows a person to let their mind focus on important life and lesson questions and you peacefully walk your way to the sacred center. One does not have to focus on which direction to take, as there is only one. More importantly, there is not right or wrong. In a labyrinth, you just trust that the path will lead you to the answers you seek.
Labyrinths belong to the family of "Mandalas" (Sanskrit for "circle that contains the Essence"). They guard, activate and amplify the spiritual energies of a place so that people who walk it can experience a feeling of grace, peace or holiness in their heart, soul and spirit.
Labyrinths can be found in all sacred cultures of the world, from the Hopi to the Australian Aborigines to the Christian cathedral builders. Like mandalas, labyrinths are archetypal collective symbols that transcend all cultures because they are grounded in consciousness itself. Labyrinths are non-denominational: people who walk labyrinths come from all life styles, religious backgrounds and spiritual practices.
Our guests are intrigued by the labyrinth that is built in our yard. It is a mini-pilgrimage into your own Self, an open invitation and a guide to encounter Who You Are.
