The Labyrinth is an ancient image used across the world and found in cathedrals, temples and caves.
Our own labyrinth is, like many, not a maze but rather a single meandering path that leads to a central space.
The chaplaincy team chose this to remind ourselves and all those we meet that whilst our journey in life may at times weave in ways we don’t expect, it will always take us to our destination.
How to use a Labyrinth
Labyrinths come in many sizes and these might be followed by walking or just tracing with a finger.
There is no right way to travel a labyrinth, but one suggestion might be to:
- travel inwards in gratitude, pausing at each turn to think of something to be thankful for;
- travelling out again might be done looking forwards in hope; bringing to mind at each turn our dreams and hopes for ourselves and others.
However you use the labyrinth we hope it might bring you a time of peaceful reflection.
