Take steps for peace on World Labyrinth Day, Saturday, May 7 from noon-2 pm at our Labyrinth. Enjoy live music from Destiny Muhammad on the outdoor labyrinth and color your own paper labyrinth for finger walking. Mini-sessions by the Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress, Maia Scott and Lars Howlett will provide insight into the history, design and uses of labyrinths. Join thousands of others walking around the globe for peace at this free event.
The intention of World Labyrinth Day is to bring people from all over the planet together in celebration of labyrinths as a symbol, tool, passion, or practice. World Labyrinth Day is an annual event on the first Saturday in May founded by The Labyrinth Society (TLS) in 2009. This event is now a partnership between TLS, the Australian Labyrinth Network, the Legacy Labyrinth Project and Veriditas which is a non-profit founded by Lauren Artress at Grace Cathedral. See www.WorldLabyrinthDay.org for more information, webinars and resources including information about the Big Connection (2.0) research project.
