Walking the labyrinth offers an experience of the whole body at prayer which can deepen one's connection with God.
Well of Mercy's labyrinth is a seven-circuit labyrinth, similar to the one on the floor of Chartes Cathedral in France, which dates back to the 13th century. Situated outdoors, it's perched atop the the hill overlooking the Well House. Over 3,000 bricks and 3 tons of sand were used in the construction of this unique labyrinth. A meditation gazebo is situated nearby.
The labyrinth is an ancient tool, a meandering but purposeful path leading to a center and then out again. An increasing number of individuals and groups are discovering the value of the labyrinth as a spiritual practice. The sacred path, symbolic of life's journey is meant to give those using it a chance to pray, meditate and seek wholeness. The labyrinth holds transformative potential for those open to embarking on the journey.
This Well Wednesday will provide a brief overview of the labyrinth. Time will be provided for silence, solitude and communal labyrinth walk.
