Creative Path Walk: June 17

CREATIVE PATH WALK: "FREEDOM'S PATH"
June 17th, 2018 from 12noon to 4:00pm

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 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.

Our June theme is "Freedom's Path"
and it's part of our 2018 theme of COURAGE.  

In recognition of the "Juneteenth" celebration, we focus on the sense of breaking the chains of oppression, and the essential lessons of Social Justice in a country still grappling with its history of inequality. Emancipation is a national memory which echoes still, and it's also a deeply personal paradigm: how are we each freed (and free one another) from the everyday injustices of a society that is still finding its way on freedom's path.
