About this Event

Labryinth: Meditative Experience

Pete Oxland and Diane Smith

Drop in for a Meditative walk through our indoor labyrinth. Relax the mind and body with movement and music. Stay as long or as little as you like.

Labyrinth Walking Benefits. Strolling through a labyrinth can help you feel the relaxation response, which is the opposite of the stress "fight or flight" state, says Herbert Benson, MD, founder of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and author of Relaxation Revolution.

What Is a Labyrinth? A labyrinth is a pattern of pathways that weave in a circle around a central point. You walk through the pathways to get to the center. Labyrinths are about the journey, at least as much as the destination. They can be calming, as they slow you down while you wind your way through the path. A labyrinth is not a maze. There is only one way in and one way out, so you don't need to think about where you're going. They've got ancient roots. They’re found on Greek pottery, on Spanish petroglyphs or rock carvings, and, in walkable form, on the floors of medieval cathedrals in Europe. Now there are thousands of labyrinths, in places like public parks, houses of worship, and medical centers. More than 100 hospitals, hospices, and health care facilities in the U.S. have walkable labyrinths.
