7 days, 45 miles of flat water canoeing, designing / creating / walking labyrinths, delicious food, 15 participants max.


Join labyrinth maker Lars Howlett and naturalist Lauren Bond for a one-week retreat along Utah’s Green River. Together we’ll paddle, camp, cook, and savor a shared journey through Labyrinth Canyon. Learn to design, create and walk archetypal labyrinths made from natural materials along the riverbanks. Take meditative walks alone or as a group down canyon trails and swap stories and sing songs around the campfire each evening. Create a map that reflects your very own River of Life and learn how to embrace the meander as we wind our way together.

Like a labyrinth, the river traces a long, winding path from source to sea. The twists and turns slow its pace, allowing more time and space for absorption. Nature’s wisdom is woven into this organic design and replicated in the labyrinth. For thousands of years people have designed, drawn, and walked labyrinths to reflect and reconsider their own life journey. The labyrinth was born from the meander—a pattern that takes its name from an ancient river. The mystery of the meander forces us out of linear thinking and our rational mind allowing us to get lost in the present moment and tap into timelessness and innate wisdom.
