Welcome to Georgina’s STAR Labyrinth
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is an ancient winding pathway that has been found in cultures worldwide. It is a tool that promotes peace, health and wellness. Different than a maze, the Labyrinth has only one path to the centre and the same path out. Walking a labyrinth offers an opportunity for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth, healing and connection. Often used as a moving meditation, it provides a time for quieting the mind or for contemplation when stressors of daily life seem overwhelming. It is also used as a joyful space in celebration and community building.
There are many ways to “walk” the labyrinth, ways as unique as each individual who enters!
Have no expectations, there is no right/wrong way to walk
Allow for your individual experience… self-care time
At the entrance, take several slow deep breaths, you may choose to reflect on gratitudes before entering this sacred space
Find your own pace- slow, med, fast, skip, crawl, dance…
You may meet or pass others along the way, please respect each other on the path
Simply notice your thoughts…release, All feelings are OK
When you arrive, spend some time in the centre, a time for receiving
Return along the same path when you feel ready. (It’s also Ok to cross the lines to walk straight out. Listen to your body & heart)
Reflect, journal, create or share your experiences in trust. Welcome peace, ease, transformation, mystery, magic and miracles…YOU ARE A SUPER STAR!
