The labyrinth is a meditation tool, “a walking meditation.” Many people walk the labyrinth to relieve stress, find balance in their lives and as a way to focus their minds. Others walk it as a kind of body prayer and method of contemplation.
There are no rules for walking the labyrinth except that silence is usually maintained and no shoes please.
Is the labyrinth the same as a maze?
It is important to know that the labyrinth is not a maze. Where mazes have dead-ends and are meant to challenge you or trip you up, the labyrinth offers one path to the center. The same path leads out. It is not necessary to think about where to go next; the path is laid out for the walker.
How do I walk the labyrinth?
There is no right or wrong way to walk the labyrinth. Many prefer walking the path to the center, pausing there and walking back out. Many people experience the labyrinth as a metaphor for life’s journey: we walk the path full of twists and turns. Many people like to pause in the center and spend some time in reflection. The walk continues by leaving the center and following the path out again. This three stage aspect of walk has often been described as: releasing, receiving, and returning (integrating).
All are welcome to join this event at Ramapo College in Mahwah, NJ.
Cost: This event is free and no registration is required, just come by the Bradley Center’s Spectator’s Lobby. Meditations will be offered as well. If you are not a member of the Ramapo College community, please email email@example.com for a parking pass.
