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.
Save the date and invite your friends for a picnic lunch and celebration of the labyrinth as a path of peace. This is a free event all welcome! For more information and to find the exact location in the park go to http://www.sydneylabyrinth.org/location/
