Spring Labyrinth Festival – 23rd Sept


The 2018 Spring Labyrinth Festival, generously sponsored this year by the Vasudhara Foundation will be held in Centennial Park from 11am-4pm, Sunday 23rd September. Celebrating the labyrinth as a path of peace, there will be several different labyrinths painted onto the field beside the sandstone one and facilitated walks accompanied by acoustic music: frame drum, didgeridoo, djembe drum, crystal bowl and harp. Come and share a picnic with your friends and remind yourself what it feels like to be in community in a peaceful, gentle way. Free event – all welcome! Find out more about it on the Spring Labyrinth Festival Facebook page

There will be an Archimedes Spiral Labyrinth and a Chalice of Love labyrinth painted onto the field, as well as a 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.
11.30am: Welcome to Country by Biripi elder, Aunty Ali Golding  
11.45am: Blessing of the path, accompanied by ‘Choir Rocks’
12pm: Frame Drum walk led by sound healer and shamanic teacher, Jane Elworthy
1pm:  Didgeridoo walk led by life mastery coach and didgeridoo teacher, Adrian Hanks
2pm:  Djembe Drum walk led by meditation teacher and drum circle facilitator, Jeremy Prangnell
3pm:  Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowl walk led by Seichim master, Elizabeth Brandis with Celtic Harp played by therapeutic musician, Jacqueline Spring

Mark Healy’s magnificent wooden labyrinth products will be on offer and you’ll be able to talk to Donna Mulhearn about her spectacular Blue Labyrinth Bush Retreat in the Blue Mountains.  Michele Macgregor will be offering her beautiful Luxmi beeswax candles.  Patrick Kayrooz will be offering his beautiful silver jewellery inspired by sacred geometry.  Alf from Bar Coco will be providing espresso coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches, muffins, gelato and milk shakes. Bring a picnic rug to share with your friends. Free event – all welcome!

  1. My request is i want to visit the Labrynth Sunday 9th October, my sister in law is unable to work the distance from Paddington Gate there is there another entrance where a taxi could leave us.

    Many thanks for this opportunity to see the Labrynth i remember seeing the the Building the Labrynth on Compass!! never forgotten.
    we are travelling from Metung via Canberra.

    • 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

  2. Hello Emily. I am on the mailing list and have been interested in the Labyrinth for a long time, but as I live in Central West and doing a few other things, had not been able to get to finished site. But got there Mon 17th Dec.
    A hot day, nobody else close by, and just did it. All good. Very well made.
    Abstracted spirit of place character quite powerful. Not much of that in Australia.
    Perhaps it is time for a Simon Petra Athonite Retreat/Quiet place in the Wilderness.
    I have a site to suggest near Lithgow, (not too far out;dramatic landscape) and a few rough sketches if you are interested.
    Kind regards Graham Johnson
