A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path.
The labyrinth represents a journey to our own center, with an intentional possibility of reflecting on what constitutes our center, the core of our reality, or the primary experiences or values that guide our lives, and then traveling back out again into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools in spaces from cathedrals to backyard gardens.
The senior gift to the campus from the class of 2019 was an outdoor labyrinth to be located and built in the near future. In the meantime, for the last three years, the mindfulness community has constructed a snow labyrinth for the arctic mindfulness meditator.
