Walking a Sacred Path - A Labyrinth Quiet Day

Arrive - 9.45am
Depart - 4pm

The Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual path of prayer that is being re-discovered for today. In a busy driven linear world the Labyrinth enables us to quieten the outside world and listen to the inner world. It provides space that allows clarity. It does not engage our thinking mind but invites our intuitive mind to come forth. As you walk the Labyrinth the boundaries between mind, body and spirit drop away and transformation begins. Each turn becomes a metaphor for the twists and turns in our own lives. The times when we feel close to God and the times when were feel flung out to the far desolate edges. There are times when we feel we are walking with companions and times when the journey feels lonely and isolated. To enter the Labyrinth is to choose to walk a spiritual path.

We will walk the Wydale Labyrinth several times, learn how to make our own Labyrinths and reflect on the how the Labyrinth is a tool of prayer and healing for ourselves and the world.

Fiona Fidgin has been facilitating labyrinth walks for many years. She was the first person in the UK to become a Veriditas trained facilitator. Fiona currently works for the Methodist Church Learning Network and is a member of the Iona Community.
