History of The Labyrinth
In Greek mythology the Labyrinth was an elaborate structure designed and built for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. It’s function was simple – to hold the Minotaur.
As early as 430BC the Labyrinth design has appeared on coins and wall decorations
Labyrinth’s were used across the ancient world, with Herodoctus Egyptian Labyrinth, Pliny’s Labyrinth in Italy and upto today’s modern times.
Labyrinth and Meditation
A true Labyrinth represents wholeness. it combines imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path.
The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own centre and back again.
When using the Labyrinth as a tool to aid meditation it is important to remember that it is just that – a tool!
Undertaking any form of walking meditation is exceptionally relaxing, revitalising and rewarding.
However conducting that walk whilst inside a Labyrinth can bring another layer to the meditation. It can become joyous, draining, invigorating, life affirming, eye opening, emotional.
Walking the Labyrinth give you an opportunity to envelope your life in peace, harmony and love
Walking any Labyrinth can help improve low mood, depression, anxiety, insomnia, addictions and aid recovery from abuse.
