The earliest known labyrinths were created over 4,000 years ago as small walking paths used to relax, slow down, meditate, or solve problems in a calm, peaceful environment. They are found all over the world, with many in our area. They are distinguishable from mazes which have many paths and cause the user to make many decisions in order to find their way out of the maze. A labyrinth has only one path into the center and out. Instead of being stimulated (as in a maze) the user of a labyrinth is calmed and their mind is cleared during the slow walk to the center.
When we first moved here I began thinking about constructing a labyrinth. After about five years I am nearly done! All that remains are to plant the two small areas outside the entry to the labyrinth.
Give a call any time you feel like coming over to walk the labyrinth and to see my gardens!
