Women of Wisdom presents The Magic of Labyrinths
with Susan Hahn & Gail Parker
For 4000 years humans have been making labyrinths – to walk, as part of ceremonial drawings and carvings, as tiles for a finger to trace in ancient churches. Why?
Historically, walking a labyrinth is associated with religious and magical experiences. Their many ins and outs are often associated with mythical figures, and in the past they were walked as devotional activities, mini-pilgrimages or atonements for some sin. Nordic pagans coursed the paths as a way to overcome difficulty, reinforce protection and bring good fortune. These days, walkers choose labyrinths for a meditative experience of repetition and slight concentration contained in a small circular package. The journey is a personal one—everyone gets something different out of the winding walk. (Smithsonianmag.com)
Join Women of Wisdom in this ancient spiritual ritual, by experiencing a finger labyrinth, and creating a hand-held labyrinth to take home for your personal meditative practice. Discover the connection.
