Labyrinth in the Rotunda, February 20 - 26

The labyrinth will be available in the Rotunda for use by the Marywood community.  This labyrinth is a replica of the famous Chartres Cathedral labyrinth inlaid in the stone floor of the Cathedral in approximately 1210.  Walking the labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice used since the Middle Ages as a symbolic pilgrimage.  In our modern day context, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool for meditation helping us to look within for answers we need.  The path of the labyrinth serves as a metaphor for one’s spiritual journey which we walk individually and in harmony with each other.  The opening or starting point for the labyrinth is directly in front of the admissions office.  Information sheets are posted on the pillars in the Rotunda.

Suggestions for walking the labyrinth:

1) Maintain silence for your reflection and that of others.

2) Take time to clear your mind and become aware of your breathing before you step onto the labyrinth.

3) Proceed at your own pace.  There is no right or wrong way to walk.  As you meet other walkers, gently give way to your meeting and passing.  Do whatever feels right to you.

4) Take time after your walk to reflect and meditate.
