The Labyrinth - Rosemary Norton
In addition to my psychotherapy practice; I also work with groups and schools in the community by facilitating meditation and mindfulness through labyrinth workshops. I am an accredited Veriditas Labyrinth facilitator. I regularly run labyrinth workshops for the public looking at different transition points in our life’s journey.
A labyrinth has a single circuitous path that winds its way to the centre. The same path is used to return from the centre and therefore the entrance becomes the exit. A labyrinth is not a maze. It has no dead ends and contains no tricks to the mind. The path is in full view. The three stages to walking the labyrinth are; RELEASING, RECEIVING and RETURNING.
There is no right or wrong way to walk a labyrinth.
A labyrinth can be used to meet a wide spectrum of people’s needs. Some come simply to slow down and others with questions or during grief and loss. The uses are as varied as the people who walk the labyrinth. A labyrinth has been described as a path of prayer, a walking meditation, a crucible of change, a watering hole for the Spirit and a mirror for the Soul. This is an opportunity to make a labyrinth, walk a labyrinth and reflect on the journey.
