Creative Path Walk: "Light & Shadow"

Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21

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. 

Theme: “Light & Shadow” is everywhere in the autumn, creating a duality, a spectrum, a balance….and this particular labyrinth walk honors the aspects of visual variances. There is the sense of the “veil’ being quite thin at this time of year, the time changes (both dawn and dusk), as we focus and prepare for an historic and essential election in which illumination longs to prevail.


* The Creative Path Walk on our labyrinth pattern takes 30 minutes,
and we encourage you to then stay with us to sip tea and decompress.

* Our labyrinth is a shoe-free zone, so please do wear comfy socks.
And our space is climate controlled.

* The experience is recommended for those age 10 and up.

* This is a community activity offered throughout the year
most commonly on the Third Saturday & Sunday of each month.
