Join Mary at 49th & Oak on May 1
Walk as one at one.
Physical distancing will be maintained. I will be giving instruction on drawing a 3-circuit classical labyrinth.
In case of heavy rain, this will be cancelled. Check
http://www.marybennett.net/category/labyrinths/or contact me if you’re wondering. I’ll make a decision by 10 am at the latest. As a native Vancouverite, I’ll likely head over unless there’s actually a downpour.
Many of us can’t visit our favorite labyrinths. And if we do, it’s one person at a time.
World Labyrinth Day will go on despite the COVID-19 crisis. We need the peace of labyrinths more than ever.
So here are some ideas for World Labyrinth Day 2020.
Make and walk a finger labyrinth
Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress of Veriditas is leading online (zoom) finger labyrinth walks and we will all be walking as one at one online.

Build a backyard labyrinth using rope
Make a spiral labyrinth with “plarn” (plastic bags crocheted into “rope”. These spirals take 150 feet each. from
Elisa A Maggio
Go to the beach or a laneway and make a temporary labyrinth
Drawing in the sand
Les draws a Chartres style labyrinth at Spanish Banks at low tide. He’ll start up again post-Pandemic. In the meantime, try a simple 3-circuit one just using sticks and free-form.
This would take more time and effort AND be a bit more permanent – and perhaps – beautiful. You’d leave it as a gift for anyone coming by. I hope you’ll mark its location on my facebook page.
On the facebook group, Children and the Labyrinth, here’s the spring ritual of one family: chalk labyrinth in the driveway.
