What makes a labyrinth tick? From seed patterns to sacred geometry, Classical to Chartres, how do winding paths unravel our sense of space and time? Why do some designs resonate for some but not others? What labyrinth is right for you, your space, your budget, your body, your mind, your chapter of life?
Join Lars Howlett and Lauren Artress as they reflect on the magic and mystery of labyrinths as a ancient archetype for contemporary contemplative practice. As labyrinths have evolved over the past 4,000 years, some aspects of the design and implementation have stood the test of time. As custom patterns and site-specific variations are created, some are more successful while others fall short. Creating a true sacred space takes the right balance of intention and tradition, imagination and implementation. Whether a path of prayer, mindful meditation, home for healing, or symbolic object, explore the art and soul of labyrinths in this engaging webinar.
