A Mazing Weekend - The Labrynth

posted 15 Aug 2015, 01:12 by Totley Rise Methodist Church   [ updated 9 Oct 2015, 05:31 ]
Walk the Labrynths in the Quiet Garden at Totley Rise Methodist Church. Although a labrynth looks a little like a maze, it has a single purposeful path that winds from the edge to the centre.  Walking it can be a simple way for anyone, whether Christian or not, to help to restore balance in times of stress.  For people of faith it may help them to connect with deeper levels of experience and spiritual discovery. 

Labrynths are an increasingly popular way to explore the spiritual and emotional life.  People have used them throughout history to increase their sensitivity and awareness.  They have been adopted by Christians for centuries as an aid to prayer, for quietening the soul, and listening to God.
