Creative Path Walk: "Wintertime & Resolutions"

"Wintertime & Resolutions"

Friday, December 21 - and - Saturday, December 22

Both days between 1:00pm to 5:00pm

Join us for this marvelous annual community tradition.
Welcome back the light on Solstice, and set your intentions for the new year.
The walk takes 30 minutes, and signing-up below is the way to assure a slot.

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 square adaptation of the historic design from Reims, France. Similar to a large-scale compass, our attendees enjoy walking on the 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 it is unicursal: there is always a way forward, and an arrival point at the center.

The theme for this walk is “Wintertime & Resolutions”…and the timing couldn’t be more perfect for on December 21st our hemisphere transitions from Autumn into Winter, and the days begin to grow longer as we set our sight (the long view) on the future news of Spring. Our walking pattern & design is also perfect for setting your intentions - those personal hopes & resolutions. This will be a deeply artful and thought provoking Creative Path Walk, lit almost entirely in candlelight.
