Release, Receive, Return
The labyrinth is an ancient symbol making space for the spiritual discipline of prayer, meditation, or mindfulness.
It has only one path. Unlike a maze it is not intended to trap or confuse, and it has no dead ends. The singular, winding path of a labyrinth can become a way to understand and embrace our lives. The rhythm of walking or tracing the labyrinth design can quiet the mind, relax the body, and refresh the spirit. When walked with an open heart and mind, the labyrinth can become a spiritual exercise for releasing, receiving, and transforming.
Some walk the Labyrinth to pray, others to find sacred stillness, others to process grief or heartache, still others to find clarity on a life decision. Some walk the labyrinth with scripture, others with a word or phrase to focus on, others to cultivate mindfulness and openness. There are many ways to walk and experience the labyrinth.
Pastor Michael will be leading various opportunities to learn more and practice Labyrinth walking: in person, via zoom, walking with your feet, or tracing with your finger. Each event will include an introduction to the history and styles of labyrinths, guidance on some ways to prayerfully walk it, and group reflection on the experience of walking it. See the events listed below to RSVP. You can also reach out to Pastor Michael directly through the church office (859-223-1433) or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
