New Year Labyrinth
The labyrinth is an ancient practice – a journey into a maze-like pattern and back out again. Today, it is often a quiet practice, a walk of reflection for each person. Once, it may have been used for a communal celebration akin to a spiral dance. Our labyrinth is becoming an annual event. We first created it for the New Year’s weekend of 2011-12. We had open hours for anyone who wanted to try walking the labyrinth and a worship service in which we walked quietly as well as danced joyously through the labyrinth. We also celebrated a wedding in the labyrinth.
In 2018 we had our annual labyrinth service on January 14th (photo above, right).
