The user-friendly, interfaith guide to making and using labyrinths—for meditation, prayer and celebration. Now 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 more than five hundred labyrinths in North America, made of stone, cement, sunflowers, grass or canvas indoors and outdoors; in Christian, Pagan and even non-religious 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, faith rituals, commemorating personal or family milestones, meditation, celebrations of all kinds. Labyrinths are a twenty-first century method of approaching the sacred—and a spiritual practice more ancient than Stonehenge or the ruins of Troy. This practical and inspiring guide will help you to explore them.
