Interfaith Meditation Series: Labyrinth Experience

Labyrinth walking is an ancient meditative practice dating back hundreds of years. Labyrinth walking is practiced in many cultures and faiths. Labyrinths usually consist of a meandering design on a singular path that leads from the outer edge in a circuitous way to the center. There are no tricks and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you can lose your way, the labyrinth is a tool that can help you find your way. Useful for personal and spiritual contemplation, they are also thought to enhance right-brain activity. Labyrinths can support mindfulness, stress-reduction and community building.

From your facilitator Shawna Yeung "The labyrinth is a sacred place set aside for you to reflect, look within, pray, and/or negotiate new behavior. The rhythm of walking, placing one foot in front of the other, empties the mind, relaxes the body and refreshes the spirit". The Labyrinth can also be experienced by tracing a paper labyrinth with your finger. Please let us know if you'd prefer this option so that we can have supplies on hand laurena.brown@utoronto.ca

This event will be held indoors at Koffler House, 569 Spadina Ave, Multi-Faith Centre, second floor.
