Abstract:

"Walking the Labyrinth has reemerged today as a metaphor for the spiritual journey and a powerful tool for transformation. This walking meditation is an archetype, a mystical ritual found in many religious traditions. It quiets the mind and opens the soul, evoking a feeling of wholeness. [The author] has re-created the Labyrinth on canvas, modeling it after the sacred design laid in the floor of Chartres cathedral in the twelfth century. Over the past several years she has introduced the Labyrinth to thousands of men and women, and observed their experiences with its power. They have emerged from their walks with a tremendous sense of peace and possibility. [This book] explores the historical origins of this divine imprint and shares the discoveries of modern-day seekers. It shows us the potential of the Labyrinth to inspire change and renewal in individuals and communities. [It] will serve as a guide to help us develop the higher level of human awareness we need to survive in the twenty-first century."--Back cover.
