Easy Path

Easy Path

Walter Savage Landor is remembered for saying “There is no easy path leading out of life, and few easy ones that lie within it.” As we move towards World Labyrinth Day, this is a point to ponder.

The first Saturday of May is always World Labyrinth Day, and this year that happens to be May First, overlapping with whatever merry-making this May Day can include. 
May Day festivities are usually held on 1 May or the first Monday of May, and the current public health situation does no...

Quarantine Labyrinth

Quarantine Labyrinth 
"The Labyrinth is a spiritual tool that has many applications in various settings.
It reduces stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart.
It is a walking meditation, a path of prayer, and a blue-print where psyche meets Spirit."
Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress

World Labyrinth Day is always held on the first Saturday of May. This year, that is the very first day of the month, offering a chance for people to discover how labyrinth work is adapting to the public health situation.

Path. Walk. Change.

Path. Walk. Change.

     Labyrinths are spiritual tools which focus energy. When we walk them, our own energy fields are exposed to frequencies and vibrations that rarely touch us in other locations.
      Walking a labyrinth can be a moving meditation. Slowly, and mindfully travelling the path allows for an open connexion to Spirit. Insights may flow, solutions to specific problems may suddenly seem obvious.  
     There are measurable physical effects from meditation and focussed contemplative...

Pathways


"If we perceived life with reverence, we would stand in awe at the experience of physical life and walk the earth in a very deep sense of gratitude."  Gary Zukav


Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.  Rumi


“Movement is good for the body and stillness is good for the mind”  Sakyong Mipham



The path of enlightenment is not the path to enlightenment, a way to get to this so-called awakened state. The path of enlightenment is what is underneath our feet.   Douglas...

Celebrating The Path

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, In : Labyrinths 
Celebrating The Path

    A labyrinth is a winding path that leads, always and inevitably, to a destination.
   Labyrinths are used in many ways. They have been built into churches; incorporated into hospitals and office buildings; positioned in gardens and made small enough to sit on a table.
    There are multiple approaches to engaging with a labyrinth, and just as there is no right way, it is really not possible to find a wrong way, although when a ritual is being conducted, it would be poss...

Celebrate Deepening

Celebrate Deepening

     In 2012 I had the good fortune to be involved with the installation of a labyrinth in Wilmot, Nova Scotia, in Atlantic Canada.
     The schedule was tight, and the weather was not ideal, nevertheless a dedicated team arrived to do the job.
     When we arrived, we saw our raw material:

     We set about planning the path with pegs and ropes.

Slowly we moved rocks from the pile into position.

and the pattern emerged.

     Thanks to the hard work and loving care of Carol at Na...

Revealing the Path

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, In : Labyrinths 
Revealing the Path
 
     One of the phrases often quoted in labyrinth work is that what happens on the labyrinth is what happens in life.
    When walking a labyrinth with other people we are given clues about our relationships. Are you impatient with the person ahead? Likely you are impatient in other places too. Do you feel pressured by someone behind? That is probably a feeling you connect with every day. The experiences we have in a labyrinth energy field contain lessons and life-teachings ...

The Intentional Path: where Numerology meets Labyrinth

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, In : Labyrinths 
The Intentional Path: where Numerology meets Labyrinth

     One of my favourite Numerology tools is the Number Grid, and the uses I learnt from my teacher, Julia Line.
     The grid sets out positions for the nine single digits, and allows a clear view of how the component parts of any individual date combine to reveal the energetic profile of that day.
     Creating a Number Grid to experiment with is very simple: create a noughts-and-crosses or tic-tac-toe game frame. This is the design you a...

Like Reiki for Mother Gaia

Like Reiki for Mother Gaia


     Spring has sprung, and I am preparing to set up my Reiki table in the screened porch of my home. I hold sessions in the almost-outdoor room, high in the forest canopy. Treetops wave and lean, breezes are gentled by the screening. Ringing bells and meditative music raise the vibration of the area, and I am blessed to channel Reiki energy smoothly to my clients. 
     When a client is on the table, I move around, accessing all parts of their energy field. I shift ...

Moving Meditation; Prayerful Walking.

Moving Meditation and Prayerful Walking on the Labyrinth

People who are encountering the labyrinth for the first time often ask how to walk the path the ‘right way’.

My answer: “there is no wrong way”.

What you are called or led to do on a labyrinth is about you, not me. While events with many people sharing the path at the same time call for courtesy and consideration, solitary walks are as diverse as the people walking.

Phrases like ‘prayerful w...
