This 4-part Labyrinth series is based on learning about this ancient geometric form as a powerful tool to enhance the participant’s personal well-being, emotional state, creative flow, and connection with both your egoic & divine self. Attending more than one seminar will build a real sense of labyrinth education and expertise, but each part can also be taken as a stand-alone.

In this seminar, you will be introduced to one of the most famous labyrinth myths, the hero’s journey of Theseus and Ariadne. Learn about the history and evolution of labyrinth designs, including:

  • World’s oldest labyrinths
  • Classic 7 circuit
  • Roman labyrinths
  • Christian labyrinths
  • Contemporary labyrinths
  • Labyrinth metaphors

Utilizing the history of labyrinths,

program participants will delve deeper into the meditative and reflective benefits of this walking tool by:

  • Creating a labyrinth and tracing the shape with your finger
  • Discussing the different feelings during the drawing and tracing
  • Walking a chalked labyrinth outside

In the closing ceremony, participants are invited to expand on and deepen their understanding by suggested “hOMeplay” and readings.

Not included on webpage:
“hOMeplay”: Make, walk, and trace at least one labyrinth per day and record your thoughts.
