The user-friendly, interfaith guide to making and using labyrinths—for meditation, prayer and celebration—updated, revised and expanded!
A labyrinth is a circuitous path that people have used as a form of prayer and meditation for thousands of years—a path that is being rediscovered as a spiritual tool in our own day. There are now thousands of labyrinths in North America, made of stone, cement, sunflowers, grass or canvas; indoors and outdoors; in Christian, Pagan and even nonreligious settings; and adaptable for use by people of all spiritual backgrounds. This guide explains how the labyrinth is a symbol that transcends traditions, and how walking its path brings us together.
Here is your entry to the fascinating history and philosophy of the labyrinth walk, with directions for making a labyrinth of your own or ﬁnding one in your area, and guidance on ways to use labyrinths creatively for:
Prayer • Stress reduction • Meditation • Commemorating personal or
family milestones • Faith rituals • Celebrations of all kinds
Labyrinths—a twenty-ﬁrst century method of approaching the sacred—are a spiritual practice more ancient than Stonehenge or the ruins of Troy. This practical and inspiring guide will help you to explore them.
