Discovering the Labyrinth as a Spiritual Tool

People around the world are rediscovering the ancient practice of walking the labyrinth.  Unlike a maze which has many paths, a labyrinth has only one path, which leads to the center.  While a maze is meant to trick and confuse you so that you will lose your way, a labyrinth helps you find your way.  Labyrinths have been found around the world with the most famous one in the floor of the nave of Chartres Cathedral in France.  Through the years people have used the labyrinth as a spiritual tool—a path of prayer, a walking meditation.

Lauren Artress, founder of Veriditas:  the World Wide Labyrinth Project, writes, “The labyrinth provides the sacred space where the inner and outer worlds can commune, where the thinking mind and the imaginative heart can flow together…  It is non-threatening; all we are asked to do is walk.”
