Guided Meditation Walks & On-Campus Contemplation
At Spirit in the Desert, we offer several guided meditation paths and sacred walks:
The Labyrinth in the Desert is patterned after the famous Labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral near Paris, a symbol of the Christian pilgrimage.
The Islands of Silence are seven stops on a path that begins at the top of the hill, crosses a wash and concludes at two benches at the bottom of the hill. Each island is a symbol for meditating on places during our life’s journey.
The Prayer Pathway provides Seven Steps of Morning Prayer by Joyce Rupp: Gratitude, Love, Hope, Compassion, Generosity, Laughter, and Patience.
