Prayer Labyrinth Experience
July 12 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Never-Ending Prayer: A Themed, Prayer Labyrinth Walk
Led by Carmel Marie Stabley, Regional Representative Coordinator for The Labyrinth Society (TLS) and a Veriditas Certified-Advanced Labyrinth Facilitator
The practice of pilgrimage or quest is present in many cultures and is part of nearly every religion. For some, pilgrimage may mean a journey to a place where holiness is apparent or where a divine and human encounter took place. For others, the passage is symbolic of the soul’s journey to God, an inward experience of sacred geography.
When walked with intention, the labyrinth becomes a sacred journey which personifies the way of the pilgrim whose whole life’s course may be recognized as a pilgrimage. A simple walk on the concentric path can become a ritual to enact your sacred quest. When the four movements of the labyrinth, which are the same way one moves through a pilgrimage, become entrained all life becomes an unceasing prayer and we learn to respond as Christ would. Our whole being remembers gratefulness, to release, receive, and to resolve. Join an ancient practice, reconnect with your center while in community with like-minded wanderers.
