Walk the Labyrinth
April 18, 2019
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until April 19, 2019
The labyrinth provides us with a wonderful metaphor for pilgrimage. Medieval Cathedrals were often used in this way to symbolize a journey to the holy land. There has been a wonderful resurgence in interest in labyrinths as a way of praying in recent years. There is something very grounding and centering about slowing down and using movement to embody our prayer. Labyrinths and their patterns are ancient, predating Christianity. But, like many powerful symbols, they have been reinterpreted in a Christian context, like many of our church feasts and celebrations. They are found in many settings as places of quiet and reflection, such as hospitals and public spaces.
A labyrinth walk will be open to the public in Morrill Hall at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. Come experience this ancient spiritual practice.
