I’ve been interested in Labyrinths since I first walked one at the Women and Spirituality Conference around 1995 that was held annually at Vancouver School of Theology for 15 years.
I’ve walked, danced, dug (!), planted and many labyrinths since then. I usually host a walk for World Labyrinth Day, on the first Saturday in May. The slogan is “Walk as One at 1”–so, yes, we walk a labyrinth (or 2) at 1pm local time.
Let your fingers do the walking!
Labyrinths in process
in girum imus nocte means “we go into the circle by night”.
This palindrome struck me as an appropriate one for labyrinth walking, even though it’s sometimes referred to as the “devil’s verse”.
Labyrinths for Walking
I designed (with help from others) a 3-circuit square labyrinth from concrete pavers and a double-processional flower labyrinth at the Unitarian Church, 49th and Oak.
Below is one of the temporary labyrinths we created in a workshop. This is on the east (Fremlin) side of the church buildings.

At least once a year I lead a workshop to create an ephemeral labyrinth on the grounds at 49th and Oak.
