“Home & Harvest” is the theme for our Creative Path Walk in October, 20019.
The journey to home, and the endeavor of finding one’s true hearth, is a lifelong pursuit. The phrase “home” means different things to people, and in these times we recognize the diasporas taking place around the world, and how that too is a reason to stop on the path for a moment and consider where we feel grounded and recognized.
Our intention on his particular labyrinth walk is to focus on these questions, as well as the sense of “harvest”. May we strengthen the belief that we have enough, and if so, how might we share our bounty with others? Shall we practice welcoming the stranger, creating safe space, and feeding our kindred journeyers?
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 adaptation of the historic design from Reims, France. Similar to a large-scale compass, our attendees enjoy walking on this 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”, which means there is always a way forward and an arrival point at the center.
