My First Labyrinth

I have been fascinated with labyrinths since I saw my first one in person on the floor of Chartres Cathedral. Never would have imagined that this passion would have led me to want to build my own, which I did this morning using a smaller version of the Chartres pattern made of flour (ok for the environment AND it allowed me to see what it felt like before I build one next year out of stones.

Thankfully, I was able to walk it a few times before a round of thunder and lightning storms came through and made the pathways disappear. Perhaps there may be a lesson about nature in that.

I wonder how many other people have made something similar, or at least made use of the walking one that somehow seems to clear and focus the mind, body, and spirit?

  1. this is sooo beautiful. I have walked on two (both on an incline which seems to make it too difficult. I had never thought of setting one up with flour.
    An ingenious solution to having a meditational walk anytime, anywhere.
    I love also that you describe this as your first, and wish you many more 🙂

  2. Thanks, Ailsa. I am planning to try a different version of this in the spring, again with flower, before I make a more permanent one with bricks as the pathway. Will hope to have some pics to share then.
