Rediscover this this ancient prayer practice yourself on World Labyrinth Day, Saturday, May 1 at Spirit in the Desert.
A labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is a symbol of life without meaning, it is an agent of confusion, deception with dead ends that lead you nowhere. But a labyrinth is a symbol of a life of deeper meaning, an on-going sacred journey leading us inward, outward and to greater wholeness.Carrie Newcomer
