WALK THE LABYRINTH
Sunday, Aug 31, 10:00-11:00 am
Labyrinth Room, 1st Floor
The labyrinth is a sacred pattern that leads you on a prescribed path to its center and back out again. Walking the labyrinth is a way of praying with the body that invites active conversation with God.  By engaging in this walking meditation, we fully engage our minds, bodies, and spirits at the same time. Join Ashley Shute in the Labyrinth Room for an introduction to the spiritual practice of walking the labyrinth. This is a self-guided activity, but Ashley will be there to introduce you to the basics.
