Labyrinth Dreaming Festival

The first Labyrinth Dreaming Festival will be held in Centennial Park from 10am-2pm on Sunday 10th September. Several different labyrinths and a children’s maze will be painted on the field beside the main sandstone labyrinth with facilitated walks accompanied by live music. At 10.30am, an acknowledgement of country by Biripi Elder, Aunty Ali Golding, at 11am, a frame drum circle led by Jane Elworthy, at 12pm, a djembe drum circle led by Jeremy Prangnell and at 1pm, a didgeridoo circle led by Haitch

There will be a Triple Spiral labyrinth and Sacred Union Labyrinth painted onto the field, as well as a 7-circuit Pilgrim Labyrinth in which you’ll be able to select a river stone near the threshold and walk it into the labyrinth then leave your worries behind by placing it somewhere along the painted path. So the Pilgrim Labyrinth will emerge slowly over the day as one by one, each pilgrim lays their burden down…

There will be a stall offering Michele Macgregor’s Luxmi beeswax labyrinth candles, handmade specially for the Labyrinth Dreaming Festival; Mark Healy’s handmade wooden labyrinths  (you can also talk to him about canvas labyrinths); Corinna Bonshek’s labyrinth music; Desiree DeKlerk‘s transparent, fluoro perspex labyrinths; Tony Christie’s Labyrinth Wisdom cards; Sally Longley’s superb book,  ‘Walking the Labyrinth as the Beloved in John’s Gospel’ and information about Donna Mulhearn’s magnificent Blue Labyrinth Bush Retreat in Woodford.

    • Hi Val
      The labyrinth is on Dickens Drive opposite the Education Centre. You can ask the taxi to drive you in. It is clearly sign posted within the park. Look on the location page for more precise directions. Enjoy your walk! Best wishes
