The labyrinth is an ancient tool for quiet reflection through walking meditation. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has no dead ends or tricks. It has one path winding back and forth to the center and out again, a pattern in which many find a metaphor for the journey through life.
The Multifaith Chaplaincy’s labyrinth is 36-feet in diameter and is in the Medieval, 11-circuit style found in the Chartres Cathedral, France. It is painted on a piece of canvas that can be placed indoors or outdoors on flat surfaces.
We also hope to create an outdoor labyrinth made out of stones. We intend to set it up in the grassy yard behind the Multifaith Chaplaincy offices. It is made in the Classical, Cretan, seven-circuit style and is about 23-feet in diameter. If you would be interested in helping us set this up, let us know!
The Multifaith Chaplaincy organizes workshops about the labyrinth and communal walking times.
