Labyrinths are one of our time-honoured archetypal symbols. They date back to ancient times appearing throughout many different countries, cultures and traditions. They have been found laid out in stones, dug into the turf, carved into cave walls, on Roman coins and in the great Medieaval Cathedral floors.
Labyrinths feature in numerous myths and legends and have been used in many ways, often involving rites of passage and ceremony. Energetically labyrinths are associated with transition, change and transformation. In walking a labyrinth we enter a sacred environment, they create a ‘cauldron of change’ and the experience can open our awareness to new insights and invite positive change into our lives.
On 13th September, at The Morland Studio, Linda King will set out a Chatres style canvas Labyrinth; she invites you to step into it as a mindful, walking meditation or 'body' prayer. Accompanying your journey Helen Flatman will create a Sound Bath, using a mixture of gongs, bowls, chimes, percussion and voice. Together they create a rich, relaxing and profound experience.
The evening will be magical, informal and friendly.
£10 per adult, free for children. Families welcome.
