Walking a Sacred Path – The Labyrinth @ Knox-Met

Walking the Labyrinth

The labyrinth is an ancient meditative practice. Many people find that the simple movement of walking the labyrinth’s curving paths allows their minds to become more peaceful and open to the Spirit, aware of what is happening within.

Knox-Met offers monthly (usually on Friday afternoon/evenings) walking experiences on our Canvas Labyrinth in the Upper Hall/Gymnasium. It is an eleven-circuit labyrinth based on the one in Chartes Cathedral in France. The path winds through the four quadrants of a circle toward the center, which is a six-petaled rosette, a traditional symbol of the Virgin Mary or the divide feminine – the Labyrinth has been used by countless walkers of all ages and faith traditions.

This fall our Labyrinth will be open on the following dates:

Friday, September 23, 12-9 p.m.

Friday, October 21, 12-7 p.m.

Friday, November 18, 12-9 p.m.

Friday, December 16, 12-7 p.m.

Facilitated Labyrinth Walks and Workshops

Our Minister, Cam Fraser, is a Veriditas trained Labyrinth Facilitator, with experience using the Labyrinth with groups of all ages, and we offer periodic workshops.  At this point, we offer all of our workshops free of charge both to those connected to the Knox-Met and to all members of our community.

This fall, our Labyrinth Workshops are scheduled for the following dates:

Introduction to Labyrinths and Labyrinth Walking – Friday, October 21, 7-9 p.m.

Walking with Grief – Friday, December 16, 7-9 p.m.

Please contact or office or Cam if you are interested in attending or in creating a Labyrinth Walking Experience for another group or organization.
