Labyrinths for Contemplation
A labyrinth comes from ancient traditions, used in many cultures throughout history as a contemplative tool.. Unlike a maze with several different pathways, a labyrinth has only a single path and no dead ends.
Labyrinths have received much attention within the last decade, particularly for its acknowledged therapeutic and medical benefits.
Labyrinths are being built around the world in universities, gaols, rehabilitation clinics, parks and schools.
This article from the Sydney Morning Herald discusses the movement.
Centennial Parklands in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs built a beautiful labyrinth from sandstone in 2014. They have information on the labyrinth on their website, along with a free music download to listen to as you walk the labyrinth.
