Labyrinths - an ancient spiritual practice being rediscovered. The classical pattern is thousands of years old and found in many cultures across the world. Used for meditation, healing, inspiration, illumination, self-discovery they are now being used in hospitals, hospices, schools, colleges, prisons, churches, retreat centres....

Labyrinths are not owned or claimed by any one culture, faith or religion and so are open to all.

The medieval labyrinth in the floor of Chartres cathedral, France is over 800 years old.

My wife is a trained facilitator with Veridatas, we use labyrinths in our spiritual practice to run retreats and we are interested to hear of others discovery, experience and use of them.

Please share.

I've never used them are I am willing to learn.  As far as physically entering one, I tend to avoid them.....I always get lost.

Mazes are designed to get you lost, to trick you. Labyrinths are designed to help you find yourself. You cannot get lost - the path is cursive, one way in and one way out. Just look slightly ahead, put one foot in front of the other and keep walking. The way in - release, a letting go of that which is burdening you. The time spent in the centre - receive, a listening to that inner voice of wisdom. The way out - return, bringing back out to the everyday that which you have learnt/discerned, that refreshment of energy, that renewal of spirit, that calm and stillness from the time spent in the centre - the safe, sacred space.

Linda M, I encourage you to find a local labyrinth and walk it then post up how it was for you. Alternatively there are finger labyrinths which you can use, tracing the path with your non-dominant hand in a slow, calm movement.
