The Labyrinth. A Path to your deepest wisdom.
We are so glad you've found us! If you are new to the labyrinth, you might want to learn more about it here. As our Founder, the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress defines it, "The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool that has many applications in various settings. It reduces stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart. It is a walking meditation, a path of prayer, and a blue-print where psyche meets Spirit." Here is a resource to Locate a labyrinth near you.
Feel free to contact us if you have questions along the way.

NEW online Class!
Using the Labyrinth to Heal and Transform
with the Reverend Dr. Lauren Artress
We often say there are two major ways to use the labyrinth. The first and most popular way is meditative walking. The second is ceremonial—or ritual—use. Over the years a third way seems to be coming to the forefront: using the labyrinth to heal and transform. This on-line class with Lauren Artress highlights specific uses; some that are outlined in her book The Sacred Path Companion. Enjoy the class and let your imagination build on the ideas Lauren articulates here to create your own healing rituals to share with family, friends and in workshop settings.
