The Labyrinth

"I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

Labyrinth Walks

Labyrinth Walk to honor September 11
You are invited to come to the labyrinth on Friday, September 10 at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church to remember, honor and reflect. The rope labyrinth will be available on the front lawn from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Benches will be placed around the labyrinth to offer you a place for reflection and rest. Come to walk or simply take in the space. Prayer cards and meditation stones will be available as a take away for your experience. Social distancing must be observed, and masks are requested to be worn to protect all.


Next labyrinth walk: Tuesday, November 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

If you're unable to walk the labyrinth on these dates, consider walking a labyrinth in reimagined ways. Trace the finger labyrinths provided below, using your non-writing hand.  Write a prayer or scripture verse in a printed finger labyrinth, allowing your thoughts to spiral within the labyrinth. Or color a printed finger labyrinth, praying as you color. Perhaps you may walk in your neighborhood or in a park, winding back and forth as you connect with your breath and footsteps.

Intention

Walking the labyrinth is a very individual experience. You honor God with this walk and provide a pathway to prayer. Consistent walking may deepen your compassion, lessen your judgments, increase your patience, and enable you to find your purpose in life to share with the world.

Come with others to celebrate the space centered in quiet and light. Your walk may offer clarity for life direction, healing of grief, identification of a turning point, or a calming of noise from daily demands. Intentional walking allows the labyrinth to be a prayerful tool to bring awareness to your questions and concerns.

  • Prepare:  Be still, quiet, and attentive.  Listen to the rhythm of your breath.
  • Release:  Walking in, let go of any random thoughts, focus on breathing, and walk at your own natural pace.
  • Receive:  In the center, sit or stand and take what is offered in this space.  Seek awareness of God's presence.  Spend as much time as needed in the center.
  • Return: Leave the center following the same path outward.  Symbolically, you are moving into the world with the insights you have received during the meditative walk.
  • Reflect:  Journal, sketch, or simply stay in stillness for as long as you need.

The Labyrinth is available for walking at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church at specified times.
Offsite program/facilitation is available with the labyrinth and a Certified Labyrinth Facilitator.
