Creative Path Walk: "Destinations & Arrivals"

Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19
Join us on either day, between 12 Noon - 4:30pm

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.

“DESTINATIONS & ARRIVALS” is the theme for
our Creative Path Walk in May 2019.
We have all traveled great distances, and revel in the safety of recognizable harbors.
The journey is a remarkable trek full of maps, goals, treasures, and questions. There are vistas to see and to sense.
There are the times of planned destinations, and the memories of unknown paths, and yet we never cease to arrive in kindly ports, and delight in how we may have gotten there.

* The Walk on our contemplative 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.
* Our building is indeed climate controlled.
* Happily, it is a cellphone and camera-free zone.
* The monthly event is open to the public, and is recommended for those age 9 and up.
Donations are most welcome, as the proceeds benefit all of our nonprofit organization's
programming and community offerings, including this activity.

The Creative Path Walk experience takes 30 minutes total, and “booking a walk” is a nice way to choose your walking time. (Half hour slots are available from 12 noon to 4:00pm for pre-booking.) Walk-ins (between 12 noon to 4:00pm) are also welcome, and there is usually no more than a ten minute wait.

Voted “Best of…” in the Willamette Week,
