Saturday marks the third annual World Labyrinth Day event, a day when people from all over the planet will walk as one at 1 p.m. creating a rolling meditation around the globe for healing and peace.
At this time of rapid global change, if we want to encourage these changes to be positive and gentle this is the opportunity to join with your community and set that intention, en masse.
Based as much in science, mathematics and geometry, as in spirituality and metaphysics, the labyrinth has been used for centuries as a tool for communication with our inner and outer worlds.
As Virginia LoneSky of Peaceful Endeavours states, the labyrinth is “A place where we scientifically stimulate the left/right hemispheres of our brain to activate ‘something’; working with humanity to help during times of challenges and changes.”
Labyrinths have been found all over the world and the earliest ones date back to 3,500 BC. Currently, there is a global labyrinth revival taking place. They are appearing in backyards, in city parks, at retreat centres, in church halls and parking lots.
Nelson has its very own Lakeside Labyrinth in Nelson’s Lakeside Rotary Park. In celebration of World Labyrinth Day the Nelson Community Labyrinth Group will host a walk and will have a labyrinth display on site: books, photographs, handouts and finger labyrinths. Come and experience for yourself what a simple walk in the park can reveal.
The Lakeside Labyrinth is wheelchair accessible, open during park hours and is always free.
