  1. The way of the labyrinth provides a moving meditation that allows one’s spirit to relax and open to insight and gifts of grace while moving along a sacred path that symbolizes the path to God. The reversing turns, or meanders, of the path allow a literal change in perspective as the brain is massaged by the electromagnetic field active in a labyrinth. Used in a mindful way of prayer, the energies are augmented by the labyrinth. Used in problem solving, the labyrinth provides a moment of emptiness at the center which allows inspiration to penetrate, giving a new thought to the solution-seeker. It is said that the labyrinth will provide an insight as large as the seeker is willing to open up to.

    Along the path one experiences many of the paradoxes of life and the pursuit of oneness with everything. Sometimes one seems to be close to the goal when a sudden turn leads seemingly away from the goal. At some point one will certainly find themselves on the outer fringe, moving far from the goal and outside other walkers. But it is certain that the goal will lead to God. All that is necessary is to keep moving forward. Of course, one call stall, hesitate, go back or avoid God if one wishes.

    The movement allows one’s whole being to incorporate the journey. Motion helps still the monkey mind, and muscle memory helps store the learning.
    The labyrinth, of unknown origin and purpose dating back to 4000 BC, appears to have been designed as a gift from the gods, as a means of helping humans deal with all the problems posed by duality. In the labyrinth one learns to move in and out of the vertices of the duality and see that all conflict is mere illusion.
