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.
The Multifaith Chaplaincy places the labyrinth on campus about twice a year and offers individual and communal walking times.
