Walking a labyrinth is an ancient meditative practice. Labyrinths have been found in many cultures throughout history dating back as far as 4000 years ago. The designs were found on coins, pottery, jewelry and in caves. The labyrinth has only one path that leads to the center, and there are no tricks or dead ends.
During the season of Advent, our daily journey is spent in preparation while waiting for the birth of the Christ Child, the Light of the World. Imagine that you are traveling to Bethlehem as you move along the labyrinth path; Advent is a season of waiting in darkness for the coming of God’s light. God also invites us on a journey to explore our interior life - the places that are full of light and also the shadows. It is a time to listen with our hearts as we take a symbolic journey using the path of the labyrinth.
