The labyrinth is an archetype, a technology that is a metaphor for the journey to the center of your deepest self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who you are.
A labyrinth has only one path. The way in is the way out. The path leads you on a circuitous path to the center and out again. When you walk a labyrinth, you meander back and forth, turning 180 degrees each time you enter a different circuit. As you shift your direction you also shift your awareness from right brain to left brain. This is one of the reasons the labyrinth can induce receptive states of consciousness. It also works to balance the chakras.
A labyrinth could be viewed as the human brain and its centrally located pineal gland - representing the journey we embark upon to realize our 'inner selves'- thus releasing the light and consciousness spark of who we truly are.
Scandinavia, Crete, America, Sumeria, the British Isles, Italy, India, France, Egypt, and Iceland are a few of the places in which they have been found. On our sacred pilgrimage as Sisters of the Wild Divine we will visit an ancient labyrinth in Cornwall. And our 15 day experience will culminate with a powerful initiation into the labyrinth of the Tor!
