The Labyrinth: Walking a Sacred Path
Each of us, at some point in life, embarks on a journey.
A quest for solace, for truth, for inner peace, for the real meaning of it all.
A pilgrimage to find one's soul. Landmarks are hard to come by, and we can easily become disoriented.
The labyrinth, a metaphor for one's life journey, can help show the way. The very act of walking the labyrinth encourages focus, assists in opening up the self, in creating a place deep inside where new insights and awareness can germinate, take root and grow. Each journey is unique.
People who like labyrinth tend to cross denominational and religious lines to explore them.
