Open Labyrinth Walk

Labyrinths come in many shapes and have been important in a number of spiritual and secular traditions dating back 4,000 years. Common to them all, a labyrinth is a continuous path that leads to the center, used for walking meditation. You enter a maze to lose yourself. You enter a labyrinth to find yourself.
