Creative Path Walk: "Gratitude & Thanks"


"Gratitude & Thanks"

Saturday, November 17 & Sunday, November 18

Join us on either day, between 12noon - 4:30pm
(The walking experience takes about 30 minutes total.)

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 they are unicursal: there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center.

The November theme is “Gratitude & Thanks” - There is certainly a rhythm in so many cultures at this time of year: celebrating and exalting the end of the bountiful harvest, even as we ready for the colder weather to arrive. The days grow ever-darker, but we are filled with the appreciation of all the lessons that the year has brought. We give thanks, and focus on the natural bounty provided by this remarkable planet we call home.
