Stop and be still; walk slowly and listen.

Not magic, but a spiritual practice to release the things in our life that push at us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Come, walk the Labyrinth.

This program has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 12 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. due to weather. And so, this would be a great way to END a long, cold winter.

As 2014 begins, the wind and snow howls about us and we wonder if it will ever end. We hope and pray for the awakening of spring with its newness and greening of the landscape. Spring will come. It always does, but we need to have patience. We are in such a hurry. Winter stresses all life forms from the simplest organism to the higly-developed human mind and body. Each human is on a unique path through their seasons and years. Is there a season or an age when we stop worrying and hurrying, making lists of must do tasks; when we simply and silently exist for a time and listen to the whispering voice inside?

Labyrinth walking clears the mind so that we are able to pay attention to our inner spirituality regardless of our individual beliefs. People of all traditions - faiths and cultures- come away from a labyrinth experience with a greater feeling of purpose and peace.

Consider setting aside 2 hours of your cold winter evening on January 29th to stop. Stop the worry; stop the stresses; stop and quietly walk. Sign up and attend "WALK A SACRED PATH: WINTER LABYRINTH WALK" (Offered at Dominican Center by Susan Duesbery on Wednesday, March 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.) The labyrinth walk is often referred to as a healing walk. To walk a sacred path is to know and trust that there is guidance to help us live our life. The labyrinth, a Christian model of pilgrimage, offers us an ancient and sacred space to focus our attention and listen to this guidance and longing of our soul. Come learn about the labyrinth, bring a friend or come alone; walk its path and listen to the longing of your soul. You may be surprised and blessed by what you hear. All are welcome.
