Seeing Within



"A pile of rocks ceases to be a pile of rocks when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind."

Listening and the Labyrinth





The prophet Isaiah said, "When you turn to the right and to the left, you shall hear a voice behind you saying: 'This is the way: Walk it.'"

The Book of Wisdom says, "There is for all of us one entrance into life and one way out." 

When we walk the labyrinth in the presence of God, even amid life's twists and turns, we will find our way back home.

Walking the Labyrinth





In the Middle Ages, labyrinths were placed in some cathedrals so that Christians could walk them in a sacred environment.

Walking the labyrinth was symbolic of their life's journey to God or to the Holy City, Jerusalem.
