The Creative Path
The Labyrinth CURRICULUM AT CERIMON HOUSE
Labyrinths have intrigued human populations for centuries, and Cerimon House introduces a series of once monthly community walks on our 33 foot square adaptation of the historic Reims, France pattern, as well as interactive workshops to explore this working metaphor. The Creative Path curriculum explores humanities-related subjects, and the study and use of our walking labyrinth is a major part of the learning experience for the participants.
You cannot get lost on a labyrinth - unlike mazes which are designed to "amaze or confuse" the seeker - for there is a forward path (with twists & turns, of course) and an arrival point at the center, a place of integration and calm. The Cerimon House labyrinth is an adaptation of the historic medieval Reims, France path which features five concurrent arrival points on the journey, designed by theatre artists Randall Stuart, Jeff Seats, and Elecia Beebe. It is a dynamic tool for many interests: historical, meditation, resolutions, recovery, and creative development. Mr. Stuart, a lifelong student of culture, philosophy, and thanatology, is the author and curriculum developer for The Creative Path workshops, which launch in 2018.
