On March 30th, 2013 the community gathered to initiate the birth of the 11 circuit Labyrinth. The Labyrinth ceremony was guided by Anthony Bar who leads the Seven Sacred Healing Circle. The Sacred Labyrinth Walk, Illuminating the Inner Path, is the ancient practice of “Circling to the Center” by walking the labyrinth. Labyrinths have been in use for over 4000 years. Their basic design is fundamental to nature and many cultures and traditions. Walking the labyrinth helps to clear the mind, align the spirit and offers perspective in the midst of life’s transitions. This sacred tool has been rediscovered and is one of the most important spiritual movements of our day. As a collective energy the community drum, sang and played instruments and were intuitively guided to the placement of the Labyrinth staking four cardinal points.
