The Labyrinth at St. Alban's is a gift and means of prayer for our parishioners and our community. Guests are always welcome to to come walk, meditate, and pray.
What is a Labyrinth?
The labyrinth is an archetype, a divine imprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world. By walking a replica of the Chartres labyrinth, laid in the floor of Chartres Ca-thedral in France around 1220, we are rediscovering a long-forgotten mystical tradition.The labyrinth has only one path so there are no tricks to it and no dead ends. The path winds throughout and becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives. It touches our sorrows and releases our joys. Walk it with an open mind and an open heart.
Three stages of the walk
Guidelines for the walk
Quiet your mind and become aware of your breath. Allow your-self to find the pace your body wants to go. The path is two ways. Those going in will meet those coming out. You may "pass" people or let others step around you.
There is no wrong way to walk the labyrinth. Do what feels natural.
