9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Resurgence of interest in the ancient practice of labyrinth walking has made labyrinths a part of many contemporary settings: religious, recreational, and health-related. Learn about the interesting history and modern adaptations of these graceful, meandering pathways, how they differ from mazes, and how to locate dozens of public labyrinths in the Twin Cities area. Come learn ways to introduce the labyrinth in your setting or deepen your experience to a broader use of the labyrinth in your work and life.
The training will include labyrinth background and history; opening the labyrinth; preparing the labyrinth environment; introducing and facilitating the labyrinth to various ages and perspectives; rituals and prayer services on the labyrinth; and music for labyrinth walks.
Professional labyrinth designer and builder Lisa Gidlow Moriarty has created hundreds of labyrinths, from room-size portable canvases to large outdoor concrete installations. Her work can be found in city parks, schools, hospitals, churches and private gardens across the US. Lisa also leads workshops, retreats and pilgrimages to sacred sites.
