Labyrinth in the Desert

Labyrinth in the Desert

The Labyrinth in the Desert is a holy place at which you may reflect and pray.  The rhythm of walking, placing one foot in front of the other, relaxes the body and refreshes the spirit.  Walk at the pace your body chooses.  Relax and rest your mind.  Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.  A labyrinth has only one path.  The way in is the way out.  There are no blind alleys.  The path leads you circuitously to the center and out again.  At its most basic level, the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey to the center to your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.  A guided meditation is available to use while walking the labyrinth.

The Labyrinth in the Desert is patterned after the famous Labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral near Paris, a symbol of the Christian pilgrimage.
