Spring Labyrinth Festival

The Spring Labyrinth Festival will be held in Centennial Park from 11am-4pm on Sunday 23rd September, 2018. It will be a celebration of the labyrinth as a path of peace and contemplation. Walking the labyrinth is a great way to centre and calm yourself and remember what really matters. This is a free event – all welcome! Bring a picnic and invite your friends. Come walk your sacred path and remember what it feels like to simply be in community in a peaceful, gentle way.

Several different labyrinths will be painted onto the field beside the main sandstone one, with four facilitated walks accompanied by acoustic music: frame drums, didgeridoo, djembe drums and crystal bowls. Come and experience the labyrinth: ancient wisdom and a new way of being.

There will be a Triple Spiral labyrinth painted onto the field, as well as a 7- circuit Pilgrim Riverstone Labyrinth in which walkers can select a river stone near the threshold and walk it into the labyrinth, leaving their worries behind by placing the stone 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.

    • 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
