FEATURED IN PORTLAND MONTHLY: LABYRINTHS: AN ALTERNATIVE MODE OF MOVING MEDITATION:
Labyrinths and other large-scale walking patterns have a held a captivating place in human history for many thousands of years. Here at Cerimon House, we see the labyrinth as a signature image for our work in the community, especially during these particular historic times of change in the world.
Each month the artistic focus of our walks adapt,
and the theme for reflection in May 2017 will be:
"HAPPINESS & HUMOR"
Our pattern is an adaptation of the lesser-known Reims, France design which features five arrival points on the journey. This fascinating path is at once a personal map, and a large-scale compass - and our attendees enjoy walking the pattern to unplug, restore, and recalibrate. After your walk on the labyrinth at Cerimon House we invite you to stay with us, sip some tea, and continue your meditation or journaling.
You can't get lost on a labyrinth - unlike mazes which are designed to "amaze or confuse" - for there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center: a place of integration and calm. Read more about our labyrinth project here.
