You are invited to Walking the Labyrinth: A Spiritual Experience.
This workshop will be part of the Victorian Interfaith Networks Conference (VINC) 2018 but you can attend it as a standalone event.
Date: Sunday, 18th of November 2018
Location: St. Albans Community Centre - 309C Main Rd E, St Albans VIC 3021
The Labyrinth is an ancient symbol known by numerous faiths and cultures. It has been described as a path of prayer, a walking meditation, a crucible of change, a watering hole for the spirit, and even a mirror of the soul.
Labyrinths can be used in various ways. Sometimes in just a general way - time out to refresh, renew, slow down, refocus. Sometimes people have an issue or a decision to make, wisdom they require, a heavy concern they are carrying, and they use the Labyrinth as a spiritual discipline seeking guidance or enlightenment.
The Labyrinth is not a maze. A maze is a puzzle to be solved, it tries to trick and tease you. A Labyrinth has no tricks and no dead ends. It has a single circuitous path that winds its way from the entrance to the centre and returns you back safely. Once you put your foot in, the Labyrinth becomes your friend – it will guide you in and out. There are no set rituals for walking a Labyrinth. It is a spiritual experience, so whatever is helpful for you is right.
Reverend Ray Gormann, from Brimbank & Maribyrnong Interfaith Network and Sunshine Uniting Church, will lead an introduction to this workshop followed by a silent contemplation as we walk the Labyrinth.
