New!   This portable Labyrinth measures 16 feet in diameter and is designed to allow trainers, facilitators and organizations put a Labyrinth wherever they need it.  Made from highly durable vinyl, this Labyrinth can be used indoors or outdoors on many types of surfaces.
The Labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world.  By walking a replica of the Chartres labyrinth, laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France around 1220, we are rediscovering a long-forgotten mystical tradition that is insisting to be reborn.
 
The labyrinth has only one path so there are no tricks to it and no dead ends. It makes for a wonderful reflection tool that allows participants to enter with something specific in their mind, and reflect on it during the time it takes to wind their way through the maze.  Once they reach the center, they can stay there as long as they like before they wind their way back out.  The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives.  It touches your sorrows and releases your joys.  Walk it with an open mind and an open heart.

 

Activity Directions:

  • Explain the concept and purpose of a Labyrinth
  • Have each participant walk the Labyrinth either one at a time or as a group
  • Upon completing an activity, or even after journaling, the facilitator encourages participants to reflect on their experience, while traversing the labyrinth. 
  • The typical goal is to reach the center of the labyrinth, and return to the outside, without crossing any lines, and without talking. 
  • Movement with meditation and introspection are the key.

Possible Facilitator Script: “Let’s gather around to hear the directions for our next activity. Today we are walking the labyrinth. The labyrinth has been around for many centuries and is used by many of the world’s religions and spiritual paths as a way of personal reflection, meditation, and connection. The typical goal is to reach the center of the labyrinth, and return to the outside, without crossing any lines, and without talking. Movement with meditation and introspection are the key. The labyrinth becomes a metaphor for our own journey. As we wind through the labyrinth consider your own journey inward and as you return from the core of the labyrinth consider how you will move out from here. Consider all that it took to arrive to this moment and all the amazing tools you take with you as you prepare to go forward.

Recovery/Wellness Metaphor from the book, Facilitated Growth – The journey to recovery is rarely a straight line between two points. Life takes us on a windy journey filled with many turns and unexpected movements. The journey of the labyrinth can be very much about finding recovery or it can be about finding ourselves, our higher power, or any type of meditation.
