The Labyrinth Ministry group at UUCW offers opportunities to use the labyrinth to integrate body, mind and spirit toward wholeness. We promote use of the labyrinth as a tool for personal growth and spiritual deepening.
The labyrinth is a wonderful “walking meditation,” a meandering pattern laid out on the ground or on a floor, that leads a person in circles and spirals into a sacred center, and back out. In the labyrinth, one journeys forward, one step at a time, and either arrives at the center, or the entrance -- there are no blind alleys or decision points as in a maze. Walking the labyrinth is a profound symbol and metaphor for life’s journey, and a very healing and nourishing spiritual practice.
UUCW’s Labyrinth Ministry group has installed a lovely and simple Classical-pattern labyrinth on UUCW’s grounds that is available for walking three seasons of the year. We schedule occassional guided labyrinth walks there, or at local indoor labyrinths (during the winter months). We also offer workshops on the labyrinth. Our events are open to the church and the wider community.
Our Labyrinth Ministry organizing group is always open to newcomers, and volunteers who would like to help make landscaping improvements to our lovely outdoor labyrinth are especially welcome.
