World Labyrinth Day

There’s a special place in our community to go anytime for peace, contemplation and solace.  It is a labyrinth built by many hands and hearts in this community for this community. 

As found on http://www.gracecathedral.org/ :


The labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world.


The labyrinth has only one path so there are no tricks to it and no dead ends. The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives. It touches our sorrows and releases our joys. Walk it with an open mind and an open heart.
Three stages of the walk

  • Purgation (Releasing) ~ A releasing, a letting go of the details of your life. This is the act of shedding thoughts and distractions. A time to open the heart and quiet the mind.
  • Illumination (Receiving) ~ When you reach the center, stay there as long as you like. It is a place of meditation and prayer. Receive what is there for you to receive.
  • Union (Returning) ~ As you leave, following the same path out of the center as you came in, you enter the third stage, which is joining God, your Higher Power, or the healing forces at work in the world. Each time you walk the labyrinth you become more empowered to find and do the work for which you feel your soul is reaching.

Guidelines for the walk:


Quiet your mind and become aware of your breath. Allow yourself to find the pace your body wants to go. The path is two ways. Those going in will meet those coming out. You may "pass" people or let others step around you. Do what feels natural.

Please come celebrate World Labyrinth Day with us on May 5th from 11-1 and find this treasure in your back yard.  The Labyrinth is nestled behind a row of mature evergreens on the south field of the Willard Mt.-Zion Presbyterian church.  You can look us up on the community map; we are the church on the hill located hilltop of AB hwy, south of the 160 traffic light.
