Creative Path Walk: Lifelong Learning

Screen Shot 2019-06-17 at 1.33.44 PM.png

We’ve extended our labyrinth dates & times!

Be with us to walk the path this month on:
Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 21 & 22 = from noon to 4pm
- and! - Monday & Tuesday, Sept. 23 & 24 = from 8-10am or 4-7pm

(Allow 30 minutes for your walk, and stay with us longer if you’d like.)

“Lifelong Learning” is the theme for our Creative Path Walk in September 2019.

In recognition of the powerful continuum that education offers, and the devotion we feel to the teachers in our lives, we create a walk/journey that speaks to the knowing heart and feeling mind. The yearn to learn is what makes us all such great citizens and fellow travelers. Join us in this liminal classroom (the Reims pattern labyrinth) for there is so much to know and remember.

Large-scale walking patterns have captivated humans for thousands of years. Here at Cerimon House, we see the labyrinth as a signature image for our work in the community, especially during these times of dramatic change in the world. This unique path is a pleasing way to focus, and move forward. Our walking pattern is a 33 foot adaptation of the historic design from Reims, France. Similar to a large-scale compass, our attendees enjoy walking on this floor pattern to focus, unplug, restore, and recalibrate. Unlike mazes (which are designed to amaze-or-confuse) you can't get lost on a labyrinth as they are “unicursal”, which means there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center.

Allow 30 minutes for the Creative Path Walk experience,
and then stay awhile to decompress.
(Pre-scheduled half hour slots are available at the link below. )
Walk-ins (between 12 noon to 3:30pm on scheduled weekend dates) are also welcome,
and there is usually no more than a ten minute wait in that case.


* Our labyrinth is a shoe-free zone, so please do wear comfy socks.
* Our building is indeed climate controlled.
* The experience is contemplative, and is recommended for those age 9-&-up.
* Happily, it is a cellphone and camera-free zone.
* After your walk, we encourage you to stay with us : to sip tea and decompress.

Our monthly events are open to the public, and donations are most welcome:
the proceeds benefit our nonprofit organization's programming & community offerings.

Creative Path Walk: "Home and Harvest"

Screen Shot 2019-06-17 at 1.43.06 PM.png

We’ve extended our labyrinth dates & times!

Be with us to walk the path this month on:
Sunday, Oct. 20 = from noon to 4pm
- and! - Monday & Tuesday, Oct.. 21 & 22 = from 8-10am or 4-7pm

(Allow 30 minutes for your walk, and stay with us longer if you’d like.)

“Home & Harvest” is the theme for our Creative Path Walk in October, 20019.

The journey to home, and the endeavor of finding one’s true hearth, is a lifelong pursuit. The phrase “home” means different things to people, and in these times we recognize the diasporas taking place around the world, and how that, too, is a reason to stop on the path for a moment to consider where we feel safe and recognized. May we all strengthen the belief that we have enough to harvest, and to share our bounty with others. Let’s practice welcoming the stranger.

Creative Path Walk: Returning the Thanks

Screen Shot 2019-06-17 at 2.39.46 PM.png

“Returning the Thanks” is the theme for the Creative Path Walk in November, 2019.

At this time of Thanksgiving, we recognize the power of Gratitude. May we carry a cornucopia in our mind, body, and spirit, and be the embodiment of thanks that we all long for. Together we are cornucopian: an abundant amount of good things, overflowing with plenty. The response of “You are welcome…” wants to be as deeply felt as the “Thanks…” that was sweetly proffered. Such is the reciprocal nature of gratitude, and such is our destiny as Earthlings sharing a path of promise and peace.
